Way more that needs to happen than having our “best” athletes prioritize soccer. 6’3” 200lb bodies aren’t good for soccer; there’s a reason the best teams and players in the world (where soccer IS prioritized) aren’t that body type.

Additionally, US philosophy/approach to training for soccer is really skewed and, frankly, wrong. Until the US emulates the European system, we won’t be one of the best teams in the world (even IF we threw all of our “best” athletes at the sport).
