kids playing soccer in the U.S.is on the upswing but not anywhere near what it needs to be to produce a consistent world class product to compete on the level of countries around the world..I can't think of one American Superstar in Soccer
Landon Donvon, he is not at the level of a Kaka but he is very good. I agree with what you said about the women's team, I saw them play in the semi finals of the world cup in 1999 against Brasil. The US won. Mia Hamm was on the team at that time. I wish a world cup would come back to the USA it is something to see. Brasilian fans are fun.
