What They're Saying: Tyler Adams

"Now, leading into this World Cup, we have some big tournaments. We have the Nations League. We’re going to have the opportunity to play in Copa America, which is going to be huge for us. If you can have your guys healthy in a tournament like that, you gain experience."

Tyler Adams from the field-side interview that set off speculation that the USA will participate in the next Copa America (2024) — the South American championship that is the world's oldest international soccer tournament (founded in 1916). The USA previously participated as guests in 1993 (hosted by Ecuador), 1995 (Uruguay) and 2007 (Venezuela), and as host of the 2016 Copa America Centenario. (NBC Sports)

    Whether it was the World Cup performance that changed the worlds opinion of US soccer or the modest rise of our starting players in international leagues did, there is no doubt there is a subtle momentum and hope for our future and the international community is taking the US more seriously. The World Cup team performances were solid, not great, but decent. With more time together, a striker, and more depth on the bench they can be a top 10 team and possibly overachieve over the next decade of international tournaments. But let's be real...the "world" didn't explode with fear of the US prowess after the WC. We were better than average and very few players looked comfortable and in control in the bigger games with consistency (Robinson, Tim W, Adam's, and sometimes Mckennie, Pulisic and Dest). 

    The others were ok and still need to level up. There is work to be done for sure and that fact that we can't find a legit #9 in a country of 340 million people is a joke!
