If our best athletes played the sport we'd be on the top 3-4 soccer nations in the world, that I agree, but with the athletes we have we're more than capable of dominating CONCAGAF and going deep into a World Cup, we've just FUBARed the development system of the last 5-10 years.
didn't say good athletes weren't playing the game...said elite athletes weren't. The proof is on the field. Our national team looks like kids playing against grown men in the international game. When our BEST athletes take up the game as their primary sport we will see the results on the field. The development system, be what it may be, only has so much to work with. The best development system isn't going to be able to make a guy who's 5'8', 170 pounds out perform a guy who's 6'4", 225 pounds and has not only played the game since he could walk but comes from a culture where it means as much as breathing. Despite what we've been told for the last 40+ years, soccer just isn't as popular in this country as it's supporters like to think it is. Put Mookie Betts next to Giancarlo Stanton...that's what our guys look like against these European teams. I've been watching the World Cup religiously since '94...it just is what it is.
