Bora Milutinović - took 4 successive underdog teams to the knockout phase

of the World Cup Finals and qualified 5 different teams to consecutive WCF. Brought USA from unheralded team of college players that had only qualified to the World Cup Finals once in 40 years (1990, lost all 3 matches badly) to a team that regularly competed against the best teams in the world. Set us up for a run of 6 straight WC Finals ('94, '98, '02, '06, '10, '14).

1986 - Mexico, QF
1990- Costa Rica, 2nd Rnd
1994 - USA, 2nd Rnd
1998 - Nigeria, 2nd Round
2002 - China, Group Stage
