Will the U.S. men's team win the World Cup in the next 50 years?

  • Yes. Most likely...

    The United States has an extremely large population. While it may not have the greatest number of points per person ratio in terms of Olympic medals, (or even the largest ratio of people who play soccer vs. those who do not) the large population supports the statement, especially given the fact that there are still 50 cups left, starting now. It only has to win one....

  • Yes the U.S. men's team win the World Cup in the next 50 years.

    I think that the U.S. men's team could win the World cup in less than 50 years. Even though they have great competition in Brazil and Jamaica, I still think sooner or later we will win one. U.S. is known for having some of the best athletes in the world, but we have not conquer soccer yet, I think that motivation will make the soccer team more better and eager to win.

  • Probably

    It's an incredibly low scoring game and they're always competitive, so one would think eventually they'll stumble into a victory. It will be the next "this is what will make soccer finally big in America" moment, and like all the other ones it won't end up being it because this country largely doesn't care about soccer.

  • Usa usa usa

    Yeah they will win...Lets remember teams like Brazil started off as minnows in the World Cup did you guys know in 1930 Brazil went out in the group stage? Yeah so USA will improve and I know Brazil likes soccer more than America but still lots of people in the US play soccer and wherever you go kids play it so there will be a winning team soon

  • I think so

    I think they will. 50 years is a long time away. People keep saying it's because it's not the most popular sport in America. Who cares if it's popular! We have always bred good athletes, whether it's "foot"ball, baseball, basketball whatever. We win a lot of gold medals at every single Olympics. I honestly think American football shouldn't even be called football. It's embarrassing.

  • Not the abbility to do it.

    A country that only has 30 points with ten world cup appearences and is ranked under 30 in the world rankings. Can't win a world cup. The U.S is a B country in the world of sport they will never ever win something big. Sorry guys but you suck all of you.

  • I believe not.

    Never. Never. Never. What makes you think that. No one likes soccer in the Us i can't believe that 66% of you actually think that you guys are stupid. Julian Green and Mix Diskurd aint no messi or ronaldo. I bet you that the entire backup Spain team can destroy the USA

  • Just not good enough

    The US men's soccer team is not good enough. They barely have any players that are in decent leagues such as BPL or Serie A. Almost all of the players are in the MLS which is terrible and no one really cares about. The team needs to start exporting these players to better leagues to even have a chance of beating the bests, such as Germany or Brazil.

  • USA suck at soccer/football

    With Germany and Brazil and the rest off the world all they do is play the game and have so many leagues .Soccer /football would be better in the USA if there weren't so many other sports .Soccer /football will never be the number 1 sport in the usa .So for that reason the usa will never win a world cup like the ladies did .

  • Sorry, Charlie. It's not happening.

    Ok. Let me get something straight. Nobody in the good old US of A likes soccer. We hate it so much, we gave it a mocking name, then we made another, much tougher sport also called football just to get the point across that this is America and we do what we wanna do here. Well except for one thing. Winning a FIFA World Cup. I know it says world in it but really it's only like 4 countries. And none of those countries are America. They're not even on our continent. We are so distant from the sport it's not even funny. And it's kind of a shame because no matter how good your basketball or baseball or US football team is, if your soccer team sucks ass, NOBODY CARES! Soccer is the one thing the world looks at, and I'll tell you were getting some pretty funny looks. The best we ever did was in 1933. We got 3rd place. Over the years, the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, NASCAR auto racing, even lax is bigger in the USA. We literally made up about three sports just so we could stay away from soccer. But, on the contrary, there are some very in-tuned soccer people in the US. But not that many. And that's the problem right there. Yes, we have the people. There are Peles and Messis in the US. I bet you. But there is no support for those players, because everyone is too busy gambling on arm wrestling or something like that. Another great American slogan: "Ain't nobody got time for that!". We don't got the time for soccer! We need to go to our fantasy football drafts, and watch some baseball because the NBA and NHL finals are over, which happened immediately after the Super Bowl, with the NCAA men's basketball tournament all in the midst of that! Did I forget something? Oh yeah, soccer. So no we will probably never ever ever ever win a World Cup because, well, this is America. And sometimes, we Americans just don't give a damn🇺🇸

  • Not a chance

    Yes we have a good team, however it's not a great team. We dont have anywhere near the support or the money here as they do in Europe. Popularity of football (soccer) in the US is declining and a majority of us Americans are just not that into it.
    Our skill level is just not up to par as it is in Europe and south America.
    Consider this, nations in europe and south amErica kids start playing at a younger age as our kids play football, basketball and baseball. That's why we are good at our sport and that's why they are better and always will be better at soccer. Popularity for soccer in our younger generation will go up this year thanks to the world cup..... However over the following 3 years it will decline again as the excitement and hype dies down. Then it will raise again after the next world cup and so on..... Just as it does every 4 year's in our country.

  • Soccer aka association football is not one of the top 3 most popular sports in this country.

    Let's be honest, Soccer is not one of the top 3 most popular sports in this country. Nascar racing, yes Nascar surpasses soccer in this country. Until soccer is one of the top 3 sports in this country, the talent just isn't going be there for a strong national team.

  • Never in anyone's lifetime for that matter.

    We have Zero Talent. And we will never have the talent because the USA is a horrid place for breeding competitive soccer minded athletes. The only time we Americans actually like to see soccer is every four years when we think we're goanna win the cup. No matter the coach, no matter the players we don't invest enough money to build talent. It's like we have to import other people's talent to even be in the running. But no amount of imports will snag us the cup.

  • Thankfully, you can't win everything

    Football is the sport of Europeans and South Americans, it will stay like that. It is mere arrogance to take it for granted that, should the US invest in youth academies, it would win the World Cup with ease. Football is about tradition, and the US have no tradition here whatsoever. Don't think that Jurgen Klinsmann can change anything about that. As long as retired philosophy professors suggest that football is an "unamerican sport", for he thinks it is not about setting up your own game but destroying the game of the other side (what a stupid notion that is...), I feel quite positive that the US will never win the World Cup

  • Absolutely, without a doubt in my mind, they will not win a World Cup...EVER

    I'm a born and bred American. I bleed red, white, and blue and truly believe America is the best country in the world. But, I always get labeled anti-American for even suggesting that the U.S. is not on par with the rest of the world in soccer, even if the person calling me anti-American hates soccer. The truth of the matter is, soccer is not as popular in America nor will it ever be as popular as it is in the rest of the world. And that, my friends, is the underlying issue/reason why America will never win a World Cup, let alone in the next 50 years. You can throw as much money as you want at the sport, but it will not change the fact that the U.S. already has at least 3 sports that are far superior in terms of popularity compared to soccer: football, basketball, and baseball. Not one of those 3 are declining in popularity, so not only does soccer have to catch up, but it has to surpass those 3 sports in popularity in order to attract the kind of talent necessary to legitimately compete at the international level. Beyond mere popularity, just look at statistics. The World Cup has been played a total of 19 times (2014 is the 20th). Only 8 countries have won the title, and only 12 countries have played in the final. 8 and 12. Think about that. It's not like only 14 countries have ever played in the World Cup, making those numbers meaningless. We're talking about 8 and 12 out of 76 all-time. That alone proves how difficult the world stage is, even for countries like Spain, England, France and Portugal, who have won a combined total of 3 World Cups after appearing in a total of 4 finals (Portugal has done neither, FYI). Using these 4 teams as an example, most of the players on these teams play at high club levels year round, compared to the MLS, which not only pales in comparison, but accepts high profile international players at the very end of their careers (i.E., Beckham, Pele, Henry). Bottom line, caring about something, i.E., popularity, has a big influence on success. The rest of the world simply cares about soccer much more than the U.S. ever will, and that is all it takes to keep the U.S. from ever winning a World Cup.
