America can use some succes during the world cup tho, to popularize soccer. Look what just happened; a country with 3 million people managed to draw against a nation with 330 million people.1-1 between Wales and the US.
England crushed Iran about 6-2.
I think England wrecks us in a match given how we played against Wales today, should have been 2-1 Wales.
We play England and probably get hammered worse than Pelosi's husband. Then we play Iran after a tie with Wales and a big loss against England. Oh man I am lucky to not be at that game given the politics involved between us and the Iranians along with the emotional intensity that comes with sports in general. Our fans, despite the US not being good at world football at all, get way too emotionally invested in the game and they hate us over in Iran.
That is going to be a crazy one given that we are going to lose to England by at least a few goals.
USA needs to produce 11 star players. Or 6. But that will ne hard of you see how the average American man looks at the game.
To even produce 6 star players you will need millions of kids playing the game DAILY and then get the best talents and move them to Europe.
They played pretty " modern" first half. Carefully trying to keep possessions, and slowly tire your opponent out. They just lack creativity in the midfield, and the defense is kinda sloppy.USA encapsulated my gripes with the sport. No one gives a damn how much time you possess the bell if you don’t fvcking score! Too much cutesy shvt in the last third of the field and not enough shots. USA looks allergic to shooting. Put the goddam ball on net!!
1-0 up makes a team complacent . But yeah ,both teams made it an ugly match.
