Today in US National Team History
April 24th 1994 was the date of an embarrassing 2-1 loss for the United States in San Diego against Iceland. The lone US goal was scored by Frankie Klopas.
The loss proved to be a defining moment for a host of players looking to make the final cut for Bora Milutinovic’s 1994 World Cup squad.
Here was the US Lineup:
Marcello Balboa (Dom Kinnear)
Jeff Agoos (Paul Caligiuri)
The loss spelled the beginning of the end for Quinn, Kinnear, and Agoos all of whom were cut in the next month when John Harkes, Tab Ramos and the other European based players returned to the national team.
