I think you have a good point, is what I'm trying to say.

Still, after following the USMNT for 11 years I've learned to look at it more from a what-is rather than a what could be. I appreciate the small steps forward.

I see youth soccer getting more and more popular in this country, the level of your everyday small high school soccer teams is a lot better as we get coaches in who actually know the game. We had, probably the best selection of US players ever for the upcoming World Cup, many of whom played at least part of their careers in Major League Soccer.

But yes, there is still a gap in class between the United States and top 15 national teams. Our best guys are good, but not great in top 4 leagues. But I'm appy to celebrate any step forward and the USMNT is a lot better right now than it was 1-2 years ago in the early JK/ late Bob Bradley days.
