I'll keep up with how the US team does in the World Cup, but then I don't think about soccer again for the next 4 years.


The younger generations are way more into soccer than say baseball. Numbers have kept declining for baseball while soccer is on the rise. By the time the World Cup rolls around in 2026 I expect it to fully be a major sport here. I mean just look at the new expansion teams in the MLS the past few years. Portland, Seattle, Atlanta, NYCFC, LAFC and soon to be Cincinnati. They all are at the top of attendance records in the league and regularly draw bigger crowds than most European teams.

As was said previously, the US has qualified in the last several World Cups. It has a good team.

Italy didn't qualify this year, either, by the way.

I think the disconnect lies in the fact that we dwarf the usual World Cup powers in population. Brazil is closest to us in size, but we still have 120-something million more people than them. Many of the World Cup winners have 60 million or fewer people. By sheer numbers alone, we ought to dominate. We are getting better, but it's taken an intense effort to try building its popularity.

Frankly, I don't see all the worry over why we need to be good at soccer. People make it sound like it's a shameful thing. We're good at football. We're good at baseball. We're good at basketball. Soccer is expendable.

Out of football, baseball and basketball, that we are good at, only 1, basketball is a truly world wide sport. That is the reason for many that soccer should be more important, world wide recognition. I for one can see soccer over taking baseball, which pains me to say, but the baseball season is way to long and the game is way to slow anymore.
