USA Soccer Lacks Skill, Not Athleticism

When the United States Men's National Team lost yesterday, did you think it had anything to do with athleticism? When Argentina made us look like a scout team two years ago, was it because we weren't as strong or quick?

Clay Travis debunks one of the more popular theories as to why USA soccer lags behind the rest of the world and explains the real reason. It isn't because our best athletes are playing other sports, as people like to commonly refer to.

"What if Odell played goalie?" and other ridiculous propositions like that are totally missing the point. We aren't being outdone by athleticism, we simply aren't skilled enough.
