Best bet on the Tube


A reporter asked U.S. men’s national coach Jurgen Klinsmann Monday what it would be like if his team were to lose to Jamaica for the second time in five days. “No, we won’t (lose),” Klinsmann said with a smile. “Don’t worry.” A lot of people are concerned, however, after the Americans lost 2-1 against host Jamaica in a World Cup qualifier on Friday night – their first loss ever to the Reggae Boyz. That defeat dropped the U.S. into a tie for second in Group A. The rematch with Jamaica is today in Columbus, Ohio ( 5 p.m., ESPN2), then U.S. has games remaining against Guatemala in Kansas City, and a road trip to Antigua. The top two advance to regional finals. – AP
