    3 returning players from U17 Concacaf Qualifiers. That should eliminate the argument that it's ok to have a bad game or 2 for these kids. Is it just me or does anyone else notice that many players that get signed with Mexico or Euro teams rapidly get called in to National teams?? Like Paul Arriola.

    If this is true then that only means our scouting system is not doing it's job. They are picking obvious choices based on club team scouts selections.
