    Let's hope this group of players have the ball control and possession skills to demonstrate that US Soccer is serious about changing our national approach to this world game. How many of these young men were trained by highly technical skill approaches?

    I will agree with Lloyd...training! I am looking at the current NorCal bay area names listed and will say they are not the best players in NorCal.
