Klinsmann's son named top goalie


Jonathan Klinsmann, the son of former US national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann, was named the top goaltender as the USA under-20 men's national team won the North American regional championship tournament.

The Americans defeated Honduras 5-3 on penalty kicks following a 0-0 draw in Sunday's final of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf) Under-20 Championship in Costa Rica.

The younger Klinsmann, a goalkeeper for the University of California, got the call from American under-20 coach Tab Ramos three months after his father was dumped following two losses to open the final round of regional 2018 World Cup qualifying.

Danny Acosta slotted the game-winning penalty kick into the lower left corner to earn the US its first Concacaf title at the under-20 level.

The US reached the final following a win over El Salvador as they finished with 11 goals and allowed just four in the tournament.

This was the Americans' fifth appearance in the tournament having finished runner-up twice to Mexico.

 

 

Of course he's a top goalkeeper with those German genes :D But it's funny that son's of great strikers sometimes end up as goalies. The same as Ulf Kirsten's son. They probably had a lot of opportunities to train against their dads.
