Photos: Fans fly ‘Fire Klinsmann’ banner before U.S.-Guatemala game

Tuesday March 29th, 2016

United States soccer fans are making themselves heard when it comes to coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

A banner with the phrase “#FireKlinsmann” was flown overhead in Columbus, Ohio before the U.S.’s World Cup qualifying match against Guatemala on Tuesday. The banner flew right over Mapfre Stadium, where the match took place.

Klinsmann has come under fire recently, with the national team struggling in international play since the 2014 World Cup. The U.S.’s loss to Guatemala last week has increased the pressure on Klinsmann, who has struggled to find consistency in the last two years.

The U.S. entered Tuesday desperately needing a victory to keep their 2018 World Cup hopes alive.
