United States manager Jurgen Klinsmann is targeting victory over his native Germany when the two sides meet on Thursday in a crucial World Cup Group G encounter, the Daily Mail has reported.

As a player, Klinsmann scored 38 goals in 80 appearances for Germany during his career, while as a manager he led them to third place when they hosted the World Cup in 2006, where they lost in extra time to eventual winners Italy in the semi-finals.

He has been in charge of the United States team since 2011, and he led them to qualification for this World Cup with ease, finishing top of North American qualifying. He also led them to success in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Since they were drawn alongside Germany for this competition, the fixture between the two sides has been eagerly anticipated.

Only a draw is needed for both sides to ensure their place in the knockout stages, but Klinsmann insists he will go all out for a win. He said: ‘We have that fighting spirit and determination to do well in every game. We want to go at Germany, win the game and be in the driving seat for the next round. The Portugal performance shows how far we have made it already.

‘We have one foot in the door of the second round. We just need to put the second foot in there now.’
