I mean ok. But Ronaldo is 6’2, zlatan is 6’5, and the average height of all World Cup players is like 6’ even. Tons of amazing athletes in the NFL who are 6’ plus or minus 2 or 3 inches, and if they weren’t playing football they wouldn’t have bulked up as much as they have. Also think about the players who tried to make the nfl when they would have been better off starting with soccer but didn’t know that.

Nobody giving a shit about soccer in America is a huge reason we’re not that good, similar to hockey. That’s why minnesota is the best state for hockey even though it doesn’t have as many people as plenty of other states
