PHILADELPHIA (AP) –  Jurgen Klinsmann’s debut is out of the way. All he needs now is a win.

Klinsmann’s debut coaching U.S. soccer was bolstered by Robbie Rogers’ tying goal late in the second half to help the Americans salvage a 1-1 draw against Mexico on Wednesday night.

Oribe Peralta scored for Mexico in a rematch of the Gold Cup final.

Klinsmann kicked off a new era in American soccer less than two weeks after he was hired.

He needs more time to make his mark. Klinsmann only held three practices since he took over a program that need a clear jolt after years of mediocre results.

The Americans, with a revamped midfield, need to develop a feel for each other and an understanding of what to expect out of Klinsmann.
