    Congrats to all this group of american players that embraced the decision of playing abroad and I encourage many more to do the same, thats the only way to cut the long road to be a good world class player until the the USSF start supporting the infrastructure of the game in the US without the well known soccer associations managed by "soccer illiterate parents" that do more harm than good. The role of this work is to be handled by professional clubs (MLS) and only with a true select level kids.
