    I don't think adding tournaments in the name of "development" is good for our kids in the US. Sounds like this is a big opportunity for smaller nations to showcase their talent, but we need something better to improve the tactical and technical aspects of our players, at a younger age.

    I think this is good thing for all involved. Development of technical skills happen during other aspects of the game and playing against good competition only allows players and coaches to see where they stand. IMO I feel that other countries have a technical skill edge on US players what they lack is field tactics and financial backing but their on the ball skills are a bit better than the average US player.
