FIFA ruined World Cup with 48-team expansion for 2026

FIFA voted on Tuesday to increase the number of teams in the World Cup from 32 to 48, and in doing so showed they care more about money than the quality of the tournament. Way to ruin the tournament, FIFA.

Firing of Jurgen Klinsmann will allow USMNT to finally grow

The U.S. Soccer Federation finally wised up and fired Juergen Klinsmann on Monday. Despite Bruce Arena taking over the team through the 2018 World Cup, the coaching hire after that will lead to much bigger growth for the national team.

If Jurgen Klinsmann leaves, USMNT needs to bring in Oscar Pareja

Jurgen Klinsmann may or may not be the next manager for England, but in the event that he does leave FC Dallas manager Oscar Pareja needs to be the first and only choice to be Klinsmann's replacement.

Don’t be shocked if U.S. grabs signature win over Argentina in Copa America semifinal

The Americans always seem to do their best when they're counted out — the 2002, 2010 and 2014 World Cups being prime examples. So don't be surprised if it's the United States walking off the pitch tonight as the team heading to Sunday's Copa America final.

Combined Copa America a great idea, but needs to continue to rotate hosts

As the Copa America Centenario reaches its fifth day of play, a report has come out that this combined Copa America tournament will become the norm, with 16 CONCACAF and CONMEBOL teams facing off every four years. But the one catch is that it will always be played in the United States. In order to keep the authenticity of the competition, that can't happen.

Pulisic, Nagbe, Wood need to see significant playing time in Copa America tournament

The Copa America Centenario, which begins Friday, is basically a cash-grab. But coming in the middle of the 2014 and 2018 World Cup, the tournament is a great opportunity for teams to integrate newer players to the squad, which is why Darlington Nagbe, Christian Pulisic and Bobby Wood need to see considerable playing time this month.

Christian Pulisic doesn’t need to be the next Landon Donovan

Christian Pulisic made his debut for Borussia Dortmund on Saturday at just 17 years old. Some people are calling him the next Landon Donovan, but Pulisic just needs to be the next Christian Pulisic.

U.S. men’s team needs to part ways with Jurgen Klinsmann

There is plenty of blame to go around for this disaster of a team that has struggled for the past couple of months. But no one person deserves more of the blame than Jurgen Klinsmann. Yes, the man that was supposed to "save" U.S. soccer has now run it's course ... right off of a cliff. And now it's time for Sunil Gulati, president of the U.S. Soccer Federation, to cut ties with Klinsmann and move on before this becomes even more of a disaster for the Americans.

USMNT might have finally turned a corner in Gold Cup action

The fear and questions surrounding the American team were somewhat put at ease over the weekend. After struggling to put away much lesser sides in the previous few weeks, the U.S. smashed lowly Cuba (who was missing quite a number of players due to supposed defections) with a 6-0 win and a hat trick from Dempsey Saturday in the quarterfinals. The win was the largest victory of the round, which also saw two matches go into extra time and one of those had to be decided by penalties, and it sends a message to the other three teams remaining: the United States might just be turning a corner in this tournament.

USMNT’s Gold Cup struggles frustrating, but just the start of larger World Cup Cycle

For anybody who watched the semifinal and final matches for the U.S. Women's National team, seeing the U.S. Men's National team survive through the group stage at this year's CONCACAF Gold Cup has been a stark reminder about just how far we have to go as a nation to really get into the top football/soccer discussion.

Despite great hosts, FIFA still managed to keep Women’s World Cup from reaching potential

Just over a week ago, the United States Women's National team wrapped up almost a month of great women's soccer with a 5-2 trouncing of Japan to win the World Cup title. In between the time when Canada kicked it all off with a 1-0 stoppage time win over China on June 6, there was a ton of great soccer. Colombia came up with the biggest upset of the tournament, beating France 2-0. Nigeria nearly managed to shock everyone by advancing out of the proverbial "Group of Death." And England had its best ever finish with a third-place showing. But despite all of those positives and great moments, the tournament didn't quite live up to the potential it could have. No, it's not because the Canadians weren't great hosts, but rather because of — wait for it — FIFA.
