Hello, I bet you missed me, but whatever. There's so much change and development for soccer (football) in the US.
For example, pros choosing the US over countries like Germany! Very cray. People like the 18 year old Julian Green from Germany and Bayern Munich or the 17 year old Gedion Zelalem getting US citizenship even though he is German and Ethiopian who also plays for Arsenal.
And also our domestic players on our youth national teams. Especially of our U17 team. Notable players are Haji Wright of the LA Galaxy Academy, Joe Gallardo Jr of Monterrey and Christian Pulisic.
Joe Gallardo Jr
Our U17 (formerly U15) is great, a powerhouse of the U17 league. They won the Nike International Friendlies
USA 1 - 2 Portugal Loss
USA 5 - 1 England Win
FINAL - USA 4 - 1 Brazil Win (Brazil quit in the final minutes)
Our system is definitely improving and they changed the rules of Academy and High School soccer. It is controversial because they made academy into a 10 month season to prepare our players like other players around the world, but they have to choose between academy or high school. I am on the academy side since it benefits us a lot more and most high schools lack in quality of coaching and training even though they practice 5 times a week, or even more.
