Impressive goal.

When it comes to team sports the yanks usually prefer to play amongst themselves to avoid damaging the fragile American ego, so hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

This Liverpool side are excellent as well. Great to see them win over the slave financed Arabs, or oil rich Russians. Congrats to them.

Soccer is for little guys with great cardio conditioning, much like skinny distance runners, football is for big guys with speed and power.

Partly true. Most footballers do have very good cardio.

I’ve always seen American Fatball as something for roided up, usually obese Americans to compete in. I don’t really have an issue with that though, everyone should have their niche.

It’s like the nations comfort blanket. Inventing a game that nobody else plays, ensures you’re the best in the world at it. A bit of a genius move if you ask me. It kinda reminds me of that movie baseketball.

the official name for football is association football, soccer is a 100 year old british slang word for that. all coutries will call 1 type of football football, 90+% of world countires call association football football. usa is in a massive minority where a different version got the football name.

you thought hard and this was the best troll shit you could come up with..........................................

Liverpool is actually owned by Fenway sports group. Basically a bunch of plastic paddies in Boston

Just wait until the US wins the world cup before England and Manchester United changes it's name to Manchester Cowboys presented by Redbox.

Can't see either winning any time soon, but it's hard to imagine two less popular potential winners.

People would prefer a final between N Korea and Syria.
I actually think England has to be one of the favorites going forward because well look at their forwards, with Rashford, Kane, Hudson-Odoi, Stirling ect.

This coming US generation is probably the best generation since 2002. I expect Dest, Pulisic, Adams, Reyna, Sargeant to be getting top club starters minutes when the World Cup rolls around to the USA in 2026

England are quite a bit behind France and Belgium right now.

They do have the players to be considered the equal of any other other team, but they are lacking in some key areas and I don't know if they have what it takes to win a big tournament.

All the other teams about that level have regularly challenged, whereas England only have 2 wc semis and a euro semi. (and you wouldn't have picked them to beat any of the other semi finalists at the WCs).

Admittedly that's the past, but it does indicate that the culture, mentality, and talent pool has been lacking.

USA look much improved, and the players you mentioned are quality when compared to the recent crops. It would be a gigantic shock if they reached a semi at the WC however.

The next World Cup is in Qatar thougb, so who knows how teams will adapt to that. Might be some shocks. (and corruption).

Eh, Belgium is far bigger chokers than England historically. Also England was an extra time goal from going to the final in 2018 so it's not like they are banging around the quarter finals like Brazil recently. Another thing in England's favor besides talent is there is t the expectation anymore of England winning anything. Seems to be a lot less pressure surrounding the National team than before.

Belguim do choke, but they are currently a better side than England. They have better players and beat them twice at the last World Cup.

That was England's best performance since Italia 90, but they still lost 3 out of 7 games and the only decent team they beat was Colombia.

They are decent, but it would be a big shock if the won any of the next 3 or 4 tournaments.
