    Damn that sucks. I've enjoyed following the last few World Cups. Doubt I will with no rooting interest.

    How does this happen? I realize we'll never be Germany or Brazil in soccer, but how can we not qualify over Panama? Lost to T&T? Yikes.

    Iceland has literally 0.1% of the US population and managed to qualify.

    trash coach, trash players minus a couple. nobody's paying shit for soccer here, if you aren't the god-king Pulisic you're taking your talents to a sport where you can bank. if baseball and basketball and football essentially never existed we would be unholy terrors on the pitch. our country is fucking amazing at sports for the most part, athletics is a huge part of the American identity, we've just never had that moment in soccer that made people care.

    maybe in 50 years when football is banned we can push all those kids towards soccer and take our seat at the table with the rest of the big boys but not now.

    How much do we have to pony up to fifa in order to host this one next year so we can get in? Probably a dumb idea, no way an honest organization like that would ever take money for such a thing.

    really though, think of all the amazing athletes this country produces on a yearly basis and now eliminate the big 3 sports and imagine soccer mattered more than life itself for sports fans THEN imagine how ridiculous our teams would be. the only difference between us and any soccer power is their kids grow up dreaming of playing soccer. we have the best facilities, the best trainers, that's why we so run the Olympics each and every year (seriously there isn't even a close 2nd to us in the Olympics). Imagine Pulisic as a Lebron-type figure and the fight to sign him to a 9-figure deal between teams in LA, Chicago, New York, Miami.

    we could be kings at the sport if we treated it as such.

    They obviously didn't care much seeing as only a tiny fraction of Americans had access to the channel they put the most important game in 4 years on.

    I get that soccer doesn't get the best athletes but it seems like a country of our size should be able to field a better team than Panama and T&T while using our D- athletes. Apparently not when coupled with poor coaching.
