American dream of World Cup glory must be reimagined after 2018 failure

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The USMNT is an end product, not a development platform, and can not solve any of U.S. Soccer's larger problems. They launched their academy, mandatory under MLS rules, one year before their first team made their debut. He now coaches United States nationals including Matt Besler, Dom Dwyer and Graham Zusi.

For one area man, his view is a little different than most American soccer fans.

His relationships with hispanic players has helped Dallas become one of the top clubs in MLS on a consistent basis, and he played an influence in goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez making the switch from representing Mexico to playing for the USMNT.

"Everything's a lot easier when you're on the outside looking in, but it is time - and maybe this is the only time it could have happened - to re-evaluate and reassess what's going on and make sure we are doing the right things and implementing the right things to make sure this doesn't happen again".

"It's been interesting watching the reaction since the result [on Tuesday] - it is definitely much more of a country where people don't just accept that the U.S. qualifying is good, they think they should be qualifying", Eales said.

Pay-to-play has been a uniquely American and significant impediment to becoming a soccer power.

Overhauling development for the future and putting the senior national team in the best position to succeed immediately is not an either-or, and a change in philosophy at the senior level does not fix other problems, as Klinsmann's reign showed. We have avid soccer fans and Atlanta is an example of that.

AbbVie Inc. (ABBV) Upgraded to Outperform at Cowen and Company
AbbVie Inc. (ABBV ) stock price rose 44.01 percent over the past one year, while increased 42.05 percent during the past 6 months. The expected ABBV's profit could reach $2.20B giving the stock 16.73 P/E in the case that $1.37 earnings per share is reported.

He noted that in the 1970s, France failed to qualify for the World Cup tournament and that led to major investments by the government in national training academies as well as infrastructure for recreational sports throughout the country. I'm not someone who's advocating for a clean sweep, because I think there are many good parts of U.S. Soccer. The average MLS attendance is at 21,692, a 40 per cent increase in the past 10 years.

Recently, Rongen has specialised in finding dual-nationality U.S. worldwide players such as Wolfsburg defender John Brooks, born in Berlin, and Hamburg striker Bobby Wood, who moved to Germany as a teenager.

"How the players are selected has to be revamped and U.S. Soccer needs to invest in the local community teams", he said.

The U.S. men's team's former coach, Jurgen Klinsmann, used five young players who had been raised in Germany and trained in that country's successful youth system because he believed U.S. -developed talent, including MLS players, couldn't field a winning team.

Also on the positive side, even though fewer Americans are expected to watch the 2018 World Cup due to the USA team's loss (as well as Russia's time zone), the sport continues to increase in overall popularity. "But one bad ending doesn't mean there hasn't been any progress".

While he hasn't won a major trophy in New York, Marsch has kept his side competitive despite not having the most talent in MLS.

"The fan part of me says it's time to move away from the past and get a new president", said the former national team midfielder and current TV analyst Kyle Martino. But I do not foresee this setback derailing the growth trajectory being experienced by MLS and USL.
