  • We are such a divided country. I can see how this may affect this team. If you play for this country and you have the right to kneel in front of our flag, I hope you lose every single time. I hope we miss the World Cup as well.

  • This why America is bad at the sport. Many retired pros are in rooms with jerseys, trophies and awards, while Alexi’s room is filled with guitars. Just shows he doesn’t have passion for the sport and it’s just a job. That or he either had such an unsuccessful career that he doesn’t have any trophies or awards. Either way, still no football related object any where near his room.

    Micheal JohnsonMicheal Johnson个月 前
    • What I’m saying is many retired pros who are now analyst, are in their “soccer rooms” meaning whatever room they’re recording in is filled with memorabilia of the sport, whether it’s old jerseys, scarves, trophies, medals and other awards because they have passion for the game. The game is their life. Where as Alexi, a retired USMNT defender has nothing soccer related in his room. He only has guitars which shows he had very little passion for the game and it’s just a hobby and not his life. That mindset of it being just a hobby vs it being their life, is why USMNT will never achieve success in the sport.

  • How come the woman's team doesn't play qualifiers for the Olympics or World Cup? Does anyone know? To my knowledge they don't. The women's team has it easy compared to the men's team.

    MrNitro071MrNitro071个月 前
    • @Dolores Atz Yeah, no competition means no interest. That is too bad and should change.

      MrNitro071MrNitro071个月 前
    • They do play in qualifiers in the concacaf But there is absolutely no competition because they play Mexico, Trinidad, Guatemala,etc and as you can imagine those counties barely have a women’s soccer program so the USA fly through them so nobody cares to watch those games...

      Dolores AtzDolores Atz个月 前
    • Cause nobody cares. We only watch to see Alex Morgan, Christine Press and the other cute girls.

      Micheal JohnsonMicheal Johnson个月 前
  • I was fascinated at all the CNworld comments on the games video. I've never seen so many people play off not qualifying in the weakest region known as concacaf. "Not sanctioned fifa tournament" "We didn't have our best players" "Sub-23" I'm getting flashbacks of the weeks leading to the game against Trinidad that denied our word cup participation last time.

    • In short, “if I don’t win a tournament or qualify for a tournament, it doesn’t matter UNLESS I win it”.

    Levi GormanLevi Gorman个月 前
  • You gotta give credit to Honduras and their entire football organization. The top brass, the coaches, the players and medical staff all had one goal in mind and that is to win at all cost.

    Genti CezmaxhiGenti Cezmaxhi个月 前
  • Can we even start to question the choice of Kreis as the coach?? HE chose the U23 players whom this all "came down to" and he coached them to this disaster. When people talk about the "system" they are in part referring to a system that makes questionable-to-bad hires like Kreis which fail and no one is held accountable. Not even the loudest voices even addressed it on this show.

    • Exactly. Manager didn’t take this serious when he fielded his bench players against Mexico

  • I bet Sergino Dest is sure regretting not representing his country, Holland. he definitely would of been a starter, well it least u'll make it least with the u.s. you'll make it to the world cup.

    Vincenzo VieriVincenzo Vieri个月 前
    • I’m very sure he’s regretting his decision. The US is an average joe soccer team with a sprinkle of 3 to 4 solid players.

      A BA B个月 前
    • Doubt he's regretting anything. Zero evidence of that. All the evidence shows that he is enjoying his time with a group of very talented players that are pretty much all his age. Also, and I think you alluded to this, NED has a much tougher road to qualifying than the US.

      Douglass FrederickDouglass Frederick个月 前
  • I think it's time to bring coach Lasso back to the US and take over the national team!!!

    ACAC个月 前
  • Soccer isn't basketball, baseball or American football. First, world soccer is better than us and we are far behind to catch up. Second, coaching in all MLS teams need to get coaching boost. We need to create finishers and playmakers players. Soccer has to be effortable to all and we need more soccer fields. With smart plan USA soccer will see a better days. For USMT take cold shower and get ready for the 2022 world cup qualification, our younger players needs to see you succeed.

    Shane TShane T个月 前
    • Thank you for your comment, I agree and don't forget better team formations and tactics. We also need a high level coach (who has a wining menality) to take the player to deferent level this takes few years with many match experience. Don't forget less politics in selecting players.

      Shane TShane T个月 前
    • USMNT won’t succeed with great finishers and playmakers when there’s no solid Center Backs or goalies.

  • Dest and Pulisic looked really dangerous on that left side

  • I am both Honduran+American, and wanted both 🇭🇳 & 🇺🇸 to go the Olympics. But honestly, USA was a complete disaster in this tournament. Today, Honduras played better than Mexico. They keep growing

    Anthony RapaloAnthony Rapalo个月 前
    • @u82zar Honduran living in Canada, here. I watch all the Canadian games, the CANMNT games, etc. I want Canada to qualify to every competition possible. I want them to succeed. That being said, Canada had no real offensive power. Cornelius was the best on the field and he's a defense. This despite being a very organized and cohesive team. The Hon-Can game showed a more offensive Honduras, out-shooting Canada 5-to-1. The same problems with Canada were seen against México. When Mexico-Canada played each other, Canada showed very little opportunities to score: 19-to-3. That needs to improve! Any way, the Haiti game is unfortunate but it's not the first time. In 2008, Cuba had 7 players defect and leave the team during the tournament and an expulsion in a previous match meant they had to start with only 10 men. Honduras has qualified to 4 straight Olympics tournaments and there's a reason for that. Because theres a consistent and proven method for producing youth players.

      Carlo ValleCarlo Valle个月 前
    • Honduras played against Haiti in their first match without a goalkeeper and one man less player on the pitch. Honduras’ 2 goals scored against Haiti without a goalkeeper is what positioned then as leader of group B. Canada would have loved to have played Haiti without a goalkeeper also in which they could have been positioned as top of group B. Mexico would have played all their starters in the semifinals and eliminated Honduras. Olympic qualifying tournament 2021: Mexico 5-0 Honduras 2-1-3

    • @OTT Leo lmao. Even the Mexican sports press had largely agreed the win was pure luck. Anyway, I think it's rich that a Tri fan comes off this way when we heard for years you guys complain about the #NoEraPenal

      Carlo ValleCarlo Valle个月 前
    • @OTT Leo is that your only argument? 💀 Even I noticed that Mexico could have lost the game. It doesn’t take a genius to see Mexico didn’t play like they did the whole tournament that being said they had a hard time against Honduras I’m glad Mexico won but they didn’t play nice football deserve to win the game.

    • Anthony Rapalo Honduras played well but do not agree with better. Honduras did get 4 yellow cards but Honduras is known for playing like that (fouls, kicks etc...): Honduras Mexico 14 Shots 16 7 Shots on target 4 42% possession 58% 366 passes. 483 75% pass accuracy 79% 22 fouls 18 4 Yellow cards. 0 0 red cards 0 2 offsides. 2 4 Córners. 4

    • Yea, but Honduras 🇭🇳 played better.

      Anthony RapaloAnthony Rapalo个月 前
  • I agree with Alexi saying he wouldn't want to get in a fight with this team backing him up. This is why we miss guys like Clint Dempsey because that was never a problem with him on the pitch.

  • Alexis Lalas and Stew Holden failed to put pressure on Jason Kries to step down! On national T.V. you both had the opportunity to call Jason out to step down but you choose to make excuses and said nothing!!! American Soccer media is freakin awful!

    • You're dead on.

      Douglass FrederickDouglass Frederick个月 前
  • Where were you Alexi a few months ago when coach Kreis and weak team were announced? Any word on Atlanta’s bad will? There were a couple of knowledgeable voices here on CNworld that have been saying for a while that this was a potential disaster in the making... a long time ago...Fillippo (Tactical Manager) and Pete (11 Yanks)...

  • the fact that the US cant field 2 under 23 teams of top talent is pathetic. Belgium, Germany and France could field three top teams. Also, no serious country is playing a false 9 anymore. Direct football has been the new trend for the last 5 years.

  • The only chance we’ll play in the Olympics and World Cup is if we are the host country. USSF since your not gonna pay the WNT, better use those millions and “donate” them to FIFA members.

      Micheal JohnsonMicheal Johnson个月 前
    • Most definitely, I think that’s the advantage the U.S has, they have so many immigrants who have children who grow to play this sport and they get dual citizenship, most pick the US because they grew up in the US. The two main ones right now are pulisic and dest.
