Tournaments-Part 8 – US Cup (1993)

Much like its first edition in the previous summer, the 1993 US Cup was not only a dress rehearsal for the following year’s World Cup on American soil, but it was also served as necessary preparation for an American National Team in a Nation with no professional League of its own.
The 1992 Edition was in comparison a lighter Tournament with only Italy being considered as a major Football Power.

However, with only a year remaining to the main event, the US authorities went all out to include high profile Teams to raise awareness in the Nation.
Football powerhouses Brazil, Germany (defending World Cup Champions) and England were invited to compete with the hosts USA.
The American squad under Yugoslavian Manager Bora Milutinovic (since 1991) were improving though they were restricted in a never-ending series of friendly matches (remember no Pro League), while its few professionals stayed in Europe to play in the competitive Leagues.
Just like the 1992 Edition, Milutinovic was eager to call-up his best possible squaf that included the foreign based players such as John Harkes, Tab Ramos, Roy Wegerle, Eric Wynalda and Thomas Dooley, among others.
Brazil, under Carlos Alberto Pareira, were ambitious to end their near 24 year World Cup drought and saw this as an ideal opportunity to get accustomed to the playing conditions in America (the same could be said of Germany and England).
Brazil would be having a busy few months. Just like the Americans, the Brazilians would also compete in the Copa America later in the same month at Ecuador (though with a mostly home based squad). The objective for Brazil was also the World Cup qualifiers in following months (July/August/September). Brazil would be without a number of its stars who would be unavailable, these would include Romario (in dispute with C.A. Pareira), Bebeto and Mauro Silva (the pair were with Spanish Club Deportivo La Coruna and the League matches were still ongoing), ditto for Ricardo Rocha (Real Madrid).
The other noteworthy absentees were Aldair (AS Roma), Ricardo Gomes and Valdo (both Paris St. Germain), Luiz Henrique (AS Monaco, injured) as well as Carlos Mozer (Benfica) and Luis Muller (Sao Paulo).
In addition Pareira was unable to call upon Palmeiras and Corinthians players still involved in League competition.
Germany, under Berti Vogts, were also constrained to friendly matches as defending Champions. They had assembled a near full strength squad. They were missing the Bayer Leverkusen pair of Andreas Thom and Ulf Kirsten, as well as AS Roma midfielder Thomas Haessler. The trio had Cup Final matches to contend with their respective clubs. In addition, Lazio’s Thomas Doll was out of favor, as Vogts had lost patience with his inconsistency with the National Team.
Since the 1992 Euros, German goalkeeper Bodo Illgner had also lost his automatic starting position and Vogts hab been alternating him and Andreas Kopke in the lead up to the World Cup and needless to say in this competition both would be tested.
England came under a dark cloud. Graham Taylor’s side had been struggling in the World Cup qualifiers and just days prior lost at Norway (0-2 on June 2nd) and tied (1-1) in Poland.
They were calls for Taylor’s sacking and the performances in this competition would only increase the pressure.
The English were also without Paul Gascoigne, Alan Shearer and Captain Stuart Pearce, while David Platt was carrying an injury.

The Tournament kicked off on June 6th at Yale Bowl          at New Haven, Connecticut.
The American hosts started without foreign-based players such as Ramos, Dooley, Klopas and Wynalda (all unavailable for this match), but did have the English based Harkes and Wegerle.
For Brazil, Bayern Munich’s Jorginho was rested and Captain Rai did not start.
Antonio Careca captained the side in Rai’s absence. Just two days prior on June 4th, Carlos Alberto Pareira had added five Sao Paulo players to his squad following their elimination from the Sao Paulo state championship.
Careca would give Brazil the lead in the 5th minute.
Branco took a free kick from the left side. The American defenders tried to play the offside trap and rushed out. The ball went to the right hand side touchline to Marcio Santos, who then crossed for Careca to score. The American players immediately protested to the referee for an offside decision but to no avail.

Brazil generally controlled the rest of the match and were untested.  Elivelton came close to score Brazil’s second by striking the post. The US were playing with five men in defense with only Jean Harbor upfront and had little of the play.
With just three minutes remaining, Dunga lobbed a cross into the box for Luiz Carlos Winck to score the second.
The Americans admitted the gulf in class between the sides and expressed that this was part of the learning process.

Three days later on June 9th, the American hosts took on England at Boston, Massachusetts.
With Stuart Pearce unavailable for this Tour and David Platt rested for this match, Graham Taylor appointed Paul Ince with the captaincy. Ince became the first black player to captain England.
The Americans were facing an England side still troubled by their recent loss at Norway and fully took advantage.

Just like in 1950, England suffered another humiliating loss to the Americans.
In the 43rd minute the Americans took the lead through Thomas Dooley. Jeff Agoos’ cross from the left side was met by Tab Ramos on the right far post. He crossed it back for Dooley to score with a diving header.

England had chances to tie the match, but American goalkeeper Tony Meola was in excellent form and thwarted many attempts by Ian Wright and Nigel Clough. In all Meola made 15 saves in the match.
Meola would later claim that on every corner, Ian Wright would be trash talking and tell him that he had never played in England and that he was too fat.
USA sealed the win in the 72nd minute when Ramos’ corner from the left side was headed in by Alexi Lalas.

Despite the significant victory, USA Manager Milutinovic tried to downplay the result saying that it was nothing more than a win and he would much prefer to win matches next year in the World Cup.
For his part, Taylor hoped this would be a turning point in England’s fortunes and tried to minimize the result as well by saying the main purpose of the Tour was to gain experience.  The English Press/Tabloids were not as understanding and pilloried him.

On the following day, June 10th, the most anticipated match of the Tournament took place as Brazil took on Germany at Washington, DC’s RFK Memorial Stadium.
On the previous day, Germany’s Olaf Thon had dislocated his shoulder in training and was out of the Cup.      
The match was played in a Temperature of over 90 degreess Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius), which would perhpas explain the sluggish German start to the match.
Brazil, with Rai and Jorginho in the starting lineup, raced to a (3-0) first half lead.

Brazil scored their first goal in the 13th minute when Thomas Helmer deflected Elivelton’s shot into his own net.
In the 32nd minute, Helmer compounded on his error by fouling Elivelton in the penalty area, and Careca scored from the spot kick. This was Antonio Careca’s last ever goal for Brazil. Minutes later in the 37th minute, Careca set up Luisinho on a breakaway to score Brazil’s third.

At halftime, Vogts was calm and urged his team to forget about the first half and raise their game.
The Germans staged a remarkable comeback in the second half. For the start of the second half, Vogts took off Matthias Sammer and replaced him with an extra attacker Karl-Heinz Riedle. He would partner Klinsmann upfront who had been isolated as a lone striker in the first half.

(Marcio Santos and Karl-Heinz Riedle, June 10, 1993, US Cup, Brazil 3-Germany 3)

The Germans were able to slowly get into the game in this half as Brazil grew tired after such an excellent start.
They scored their first goal in the 66th minute. Christian Ziege, making his debut for Germany, sent a through ball for Klinsmann to score.
In the 80th minute, Substitute Michael Schulz took a shot that was deflected back to his head and was then diverted into the goalmouth. Brazil goalkeeper Taffarel punched the ball out but it reached Andreas Moeller who chested it and scored.

In the last minute, Michael Schulz took a throw- in that took a bounce on the surface and went over everyone’s head and Klinsmann headed it in for the equalizer.
It had been a spectacular match that had delighted both the crowd and the Tournament organizers as an advertisement for the game.
This would turn out to be Brazil defender Julio Cesar’s last match for Brazil. He quit the squad two days later (June 12th). He reported that four of his expensive watches and £30,000 in cash were stolen from his hotel room.
Other Brazilians (Careca and Valber) and German players would also report of thefts in their respective hotel rooms.
Julio Cesar complained that England and Germany were staying in luxury hotels while the Brazilian Federation had housed them in a cheap hotel.
On June 13th, England salvaged some pride with their performance against Brazil at Washington, DC’s RFK Memorial Stadium (notably Des walker back in form after some dismal displays).
Goalkeeper Tim Flowers made his debut for England and David Platt was back in the side. It was Platt, who gave England the lead in the 47th minute. He had just come on in the start of the second half replacing David Batty.

Lee Sharpe took a corner from the right side. He passed to Andy Sinton at the edge of the box, who in turn lobbed a cross into the box for Platt to head home.
Brazil tied the match in the 77th minute from a corner as well. Almir’s corner from the left side was met by Marcio Santos who scored with a downward header. This was perhaps the least spectacular match of the Tournament according to most observers.

On the same day at Chicago’s Soldier Field, USA took on Germany. Germany’s domination was emphatic in a match where German captain Lothar Matthaus was earning his 100th Cap.

In the 34th minute, Karl-Heinz Riedle scored the first goal of his hat trick (all headers). He scored from a diving header from a cross by Ziege from the left side.
In the 40th minute, Germany scored their third. Jurgen Kohler took a shot from outside the box that hit the bar and Riedle headed in the rebound.

The Germans scored once more in the 59th minute. Stefan Effenberg’s cross from the right side was headed in by Riedle to complete his hat trick of headers.
At this stage, the US team was in disarray with the Germans in complete control.
However, the Germans took their foot off the pedal and allowed the Americans back in.
In the 72nd minute, Mike Lapper made a long cross from his own half; Dooley evaded Kohler and allowed Earnie Stewart to slot past Kopke from a narrow angle.
In then 80th minute, USA scored another goal through Dooley. He headed past Kopke off a free kick from Harkes.

The ending had been a disappointment for the Germans who were dominant for most of the match. Berti Vogts called the first 70 minutes as Germany’s best in the Tournament and added, “we seemed to remember that we would be back here in 12 months and started giving goals away”.   
Vogts was satisfied with the teamwork and blamed the goals on individual errors. He was dissatisfied of Germany having given up six goals in their two matches and felt Olaf Thon’s absence was the contributing factor.
The Germans lost Jurgen Kohler to injury. The following day Bayer Leverkusen’s Christian Worns was called up to replace him.
The last match of the Tournament was set for June 19th between old rivals England and Germany at Pontiac’s Silverdome (Indoor) Stadium in Michigan (under 92 percent humidity).

The field was synthetic, therefore a Grass pitch (in parts) had to be transported from California. Afterwards Vogts and Klinsmann were impressed with the pitch and called it ‘perfect’.
This match would become the first in America to bring in more than 1 Million Dollars in gate receipts.

Stefan Effenberg gave Germany the lead in the 26th minute. Matthaus lofted a cross into the box for Effenberg, who evaded Pallister before scoring.
Just five minutes later, England tied the match. Ince and Ian Wright combined with a one-two before supplying Platt who scored.

Germany scored the winner early in the second half. In the 53rd minute, Ziege struck the post with a low shot and Klinsmann picked up the rebound to score his Tournament topping fourth goal. Klinsmann scored in all three matches and was named the MVP (Most valuable Player) of the tournament.
The win made Germany the winners of the Tournament on points with Brazil close second.

USA faced a tougher competition than the previous year. After a predictable loss to Brazil, there was some euphoria over the unexpected win over England and this generated some buzz in the soccer un-friendly atmosphere of US media.
But then the American came down to earth once more after the comprehensive loss to Germany. Though the final scoreline (3-4) flattered the Americans and once again raised some hopes in the media after the Americans were able to score two late goals. But it was clear they had their work cut out for the following year, despite playing at home.
The attendance at the matches had been high above most expectations. The matches had been entertaining in general with many goals. It was hoped this would go a long way in combating American stereotypes of Soccer being a low scoring game. It was estimated that $2 Million profit was made from the Tournament.

The Germans incidentally toured the USA once more in December and defeated USA once more (December 18th, 1993, 3-0) in Palo Alto, California.
They also faced Brazil once more in November 17, 1993 in Koln (2-1) win.
However, the World Cup would end in heartbreak, as they would be eliminated to Hristo Stoichkov’s Bulgaria in the quarterfinals.
The Americans did meet their objective of qualifying from the Group phase in the World Cup, the following year and the semi-competitive nature of the 1992 and 1993 US Cups must have helped.
For the English, this competition was just too much for a tired squad. Many questioned the long English Premier League season as an excuse but England’s form had been wretched to begin with.
In the end England would fail to qualify for the World Cup and Taylor would resign.
By the following summer, Brazil welcomed back Romario / Bebeto and ended their two decades long quest to win the World Cup.
