It cracks me up when 6 year olds wear shin guards, they couldn't hurt eachother if they tried.

But alot of nations including England and Germany suffer from too much formality and coaching in youth soccer, sapping kids of creativity. Of course nowadays, even a decent 10 yo kid in Brazil gets thrown to the academies.

Americans dont suck at soccer.

Im pretty sure 6 year olds can hurt each other pretty good with a good rake of the shins too.

Actually, FIFA ranks US 28th in the world....I wouldn't say that makes US Soccer that bad after all, don't you think?

Their position in the world rankings says otherwise.
Football is growing in the US, I think in years to come they will be a very good iternational side.

I,ve seen some ****e threads in my time but this one takes the absolute biscuit. The moron that started it needs his fingers removed and i would strongly advise against reproducing

the usa is isolated from europe which is the centre of world football , i realise south america produce great players but they all play in europe , bar the world cup , americans will never see the top stars playing in their own country , watching it on tv is a problem due to time difference
