After the American national Football team failed to make it to the main draw of this year’s World Cup and the head coach Bruce Arena left his position taking the accountability of the failure, it was widely expected by the supporters that the association would go for a big name who would have managed teams in the biggest of leagues in Europe and would perhaps have the experience of working with the international teams as well.

Dave Sarachan, who has been appointed as an interim manager of United States, claims that his team has to avoid committing unforced errors when they take on Peru in a friendly match. USA have been going through a difficult period in recent times. Since June, the team has managed only a solitary victory in six attempts and this was a narrow 1-0 success over Mexico. Even though United states have faced some top opposition during this period, such a meagre return of results does not bode well for the national team going into the next round of competitive qualification games.
