If only every World Cup was in the Us?

How does concacaf let the Us get away with that? Do they threaten to investigate with the fbi?

I've loved European soccer for as long as I can remember, and I still do. And some time ago, I had a very typical opinion of American soccer for a European sports fan. My fourth season in the NFL is starting, and I am looking forward to it. I read on https://ozfooty.net/ that there will be many replacements on the American soccer side this year; I don't even know which ones; it's a mystery to me!

I put this here, because there is no appropriate thread and I'm too lazy to make one. US women's team (the best in the wrong iirc) was destroyed by some random Welsh club 12-0, as there was a mix between current and already retired players. Their forward looks around 40-45 years old.
I know that there is a big gap between men's and women's professional football, but I never imagined that is so huge.

This isn't accurate.

This was a veteran's game. But yeah, US women's team was made up of former internationals whilst Wrexham team was made up of 6th tier English football fatties.

An MLS U-15 side once beat the USWNT during a World Cup warm-up. Yes, the gap is enormous.
Of course it is.
It's stupid to believe otherwise.

There probably isn't a sport where it can be genuinely competitive. Maybe chess to a degree but the data disagrees. And most would disagree that it's a sport.

haha the US women want to get paid as much as the men(they actually get paid way more + have insurance + have guaranteed pay which the men do not but they took it took court now get paid way way way more than the men when they were offered the same deal as the men and said no) and keep challenging the mens team to a game.

I remember in high school we would practice with the girls on Saturday. It was pretty much go run 10 miles together. Think our miles had to be under 6 minutes each or they'd make us run another. The girls team was like 8-9 minutes a mile or they had to run another. We were all taller but 2-3 minute difference is huge.

They would also all slap us in the balls or step on our feet. You can't defend against them or bull doze them when you play or everyone thinks you're a cunt.

I was in a mixed league of players with men and women and yea if you have a woman who can play it makes it easier. Since 90% of the teams are made up of girl friends or wives who don't want to be there.

Lol USA is a g-ddamn horror show. Obliterated by Colombia.

Knell before Zod!!!!

Seriously the US defense is a joke the last 2 goals should not have happened. Pretty much provided our team was awesome assist

Now hope we don’t some how blow it against the US in the knockout rounds if you get that far

Just fyi Uruguay is much better than Colombia in case you guys do those betting apps that might have the US in 1st place of that group

I remember in 2022 WC group, Iran almost had a chance to make it 1-1 at the end. They blew so many oppurtunities to take a bigger lead, and Iran with a few chances they had were close to equalizing because the defense was awful. Team USA was so close to throwing it all away. The defense and gk looked real bad, seems like they are worse now.

Never ever female grandmasters beat male grandmasters in an official game. To be precise, there were no official tournaments where 2 genders are participated.
