    Seriously embarrassing by USMNT. All they needed was a draw against by far the worst team in the group. Feel bad for Pulisic who was having very good year or 2, shame he will miss world cup.

    Also watched US U17 world cup game against India, have to say I wasn't impressed at all.

    Man, I wasn't expecting this. Lol for FIFA, they were just breathing a sigh of relief for Messi and Argentina, and half an hour later 300 mln of Americans are missing out on world cup.

    But really, this is unbelievably bad, the group is quite easy.
    My username has nothing to do with the player of loserpool fc, it is just a reference to an Italian novel.

    You see people from Colombia, Oceania, Ireland(i think) pretending that at least ONCE in their life they saw a young wc talent arriving and becoming a world star.

    Just a idea: if you want a serious debate about football, you should block everybody from countries that NEVER will win nothing and NEVER will have a balon d'or, for example.
    Whats the point about those guys opinions??? Can i go to some New Zealand chat and start to teach them how to recognize the better wc prospects among young Rugby players?
    Again, if you NEVER saw a young wc prospect struggling in his first years, like Kaka or Ronaldinho who were booed by they local supporters here, how could you judge????

    man - this pisses me off so much! HOW THE EFF DO YOU NOT QUALIFY FROM CONCACAF????

    so many emotions:

    1. time to wake up - I love US soccer and I love this country but some of the soccer fans in this country are so stupid - they overrate the USA squad so much and have no conception of the talent gap between the USA and pretty much all of south America and Europe - hell, even the talent gap to mexico. They think that a few wins here and there and decent performances in the tournaments means we are so close, but they have no idea how limited the players are and how miserable we look even when we win sometimes. These fans who think the USA is 'almost there' need to STFU or watch more soccer before running their mouth. Typical dumbasses love to claim we are the best at everything and can dominate Europeans at their own sport (similar sentiments to the tour de france when lance amstrong was cheating his way to wins). Again, not all USMNT fans, but too many.

    2. time to stop babying US talent - too many times players who have real talent shirk the responsibility and pressure and come running back to the MLS. I understand its comfortable and you can make some dough and I have a vested interest in having the MLS succeed and be competitive but players like Donovan, Bradley, jones, Dempsey, altidore, etc...should have stayed and kept training and competing in Europe. They don't need to play at elite clubs, just keep plugging away in mid-table clubs in the 3 big leagues and atleast play against the best competition.

    3. US Soccer has to do a better of job of getting top athletes in the US to be more attracted to the sport. Maybe with the increased concern of long term brain damage, health issues, fucked-up racist owners and the exposed racial undertones and hypicrocy in the NFL, soccer can try and make a concerted effort in the US to try and get better athletes into the soccer realm. Culturally, US soccer has to brand itself better than something that is limited to northeast prep schools and latino/Hispanic immigrants. There is a huge amount of athletic talent in the US and it needs to be directed to the USMNT better - make it more attractive than other sports. American football seems the most ripe to see a drop in popularity/talent.

    4. encourage creativity FFS - without set pieces I don't think we would ever win games. Glad to see solid fundamentals but if you don't encourage creativity and some flair coming up through the systems, you can't compete on the international level.
