If you picture a soccer ball looking like this ⚽, you're not alone. But back in the early days of television they looked very, very different. Watch: http://bit.ly/2tf3RP5

It's simple, Americans (the men) put all their energy, focus and talent into sports that nobody else in the world gives 2 shits about ...ie "American Football" or Baseball.

Soccer is boring. I'd rather watch 22 grown men smash into eachother and get concussions than 90 minutes of almost goals until penalty shots

It takes talent, fitness and willpower to play. Not armor and brunt force.
it also is played mostly uninterrupted and not fought inch by inch, with a zillion breaks and delays for re-positioning, which may lead to a goal being harder to achieve than a "touchdown", but makes for a MUCH more dynamic game you have to focus on to follow and understand.

Soccer drives me crazy. You watch them all run around showing lots of athleticism and strategy. Then half the time it either ends in a tie or with all the strategy, and for that matter the game itself, taken out of it as the teams take free kicks. It almost feels like after all that play they might as well have just stayed at home and flipped a coin to decide the winner. It doesn't always work out that way of course. Sometimes a team actually wins by being better that day at soccer. But the ties and the rest happen far to often.
In my opinion.

All around the world the contries that dominate in soccer have soccer as the most popular game. In America our best athelets aren't playing soccer by a long shot. Thats why our men suck vs. the world. Our women dominate in soccer because soccer is one of the more popular sports for young females to play while for young males it takes a back seat to Football, Basketball, Baseball. It's not complicated to understand this.
For you idiots claiming American Men are not top athletes. I'd challenge your country to put an American Football team together and come play an intense game vs. an NFL All Star Team. You wouldn't be able to beat them in 200 years. Dumbasses...

Because historically the USA's best athletes play other sports. If Steven Gerrard was born in America he would have been a 3B for the Yankees or a QB for the Giants.

In the U.S. there are three major professional sports. Football, Basketball, and baseball. The majority of kids grow up idolizing stars from these three. It's no surprise there's a lack of interest and development in soccer/football. No offense to my european friends, but imagine a startup American style football league in the UK. Even after 20 years it would still be comical to watch. It's not in your blood. Just like soccer isn't in ours.

First of all, stop calling it "soccer". Americans have no respect for this sport and that is why America is considered as a grave yard by football fans for players who are getting old or almost at the end of their carrer.

While the women's team may be the best in the world, they were beat by an under 15 boy's team. Hence, the title of the video is a bit misleading given that the men's team would beat the women's team.

There's a dilution of talent, everyone who's really good at playing soccer (fast, good feet, etc) are probably playing basketball, baseball, or things like that. There's too many sports and soccer is too low on the list to attract the best athletes.

As a relatively new fan of the beautiful game (2006), who was once a diehard American football fan since a kid.. I can honestly say that international football has won me over due to its fluidity and less pauses for commercial breaks. The NFL has lost me for the most part and in big part because it's reputation for brain damage and ignorance towards police brutality in America. More Americans are falling in love with the beautiful game every day and it's only getting better. (Phoenix Rising Supporter)

Americans aren’t good at the game because the game is too technical for them, and they don’t appreciate the game. In addition the MLS sucks, as there’s no promotion and relegation battles so it’s too comfortable to play in.

Americans simply don't care about the sport. The best male athletes in America are playing other sports. Most Americans couldn't even tell you whose on the American team or when they play.

I've managed both boys and girls in the US. This is the difference I see, which helps to explain the results gap: many American boys are highlights-obsessed self-centered blockheads, while girls demonstrate an immense ability to cooperate, listen, believe in The Team first, show for training on time, are are consistently ready to work hard for themselves and each other.
