After the 2014 World Cup, Jurgen Klinsmann and US Soccer must plan ahead for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, 2016 Copa America, and the 2018 World Cup. It is not going to be an easy task but there is at least a generational change.

The immediate future will be this autumn when the USA faces the Czech Republic and the Republic of Ireland in friendly matches. These matches must be used as a rehearsal for the next four years.

The predominant players in the next four years will be Brad Guzan, De Andre Yedlin, and Julian Green among others. The US Soccer nation will not be the only one that is busy this summer and autumn.

The Lamar Hunt US Cup Semifinals are expected to be held next month with the Seattle Sounders facing the Chicago Fire at Starfire Sports Complex at Tukwila, Washington. FC Dallas will face the Philadelphia Union and Sebastien Letoux with more action.
