The 6th Thought: Can’t Compete

We cannot win the World Cup because we are not at that level yet.

-Jurgen Klinsmann, US Mens Soccer Coach (source)

Gotta love these brutal assessments, but he’s got it spot on. The US will be lucky to secure a single win in the group stage, partnered with Germany, Portugal and Ghama in Group G. The US will never be at the level to truly compete on the international stage, especially if homegrown talent plays in the MLS. Unfortunately many US players who play abroad, either play in the lower divisions or lac the necessary talent to secure a starting XI spot. So enjoy Brazil for 30 days and see how the beautiful game is really played.
