    The moment when the United States men's soccer team learned its group at the World Cup draw ceremony on Dec. 6. The U.S. will face Germany, Portugal and Ghana, perhaps the toughest group.

    NYT: The U.S.’s tough group was just one of the hotly debated outcomes of the draw in December. Relying more on world rankings would lead to more balanced groups.

    Thats not the toghest group. Gropu D is the group of death
    Uruguay (2 times champion)
    Italy (2 times champion)
    England (1 time champions)
    Costa Rica... Lol.


    And USA has no chances. But the problem is they're average-bad against powerful teams.

    Soccer is a corrupt sport at the organizational level. This is why it will never take hold in the US.

    You're so wrong. If anything FIFA wants USA to reach high positions because it will bring millions of adepts to the game. It was unfortunate for FIFA USA is in such a tough team. So know the facts before finding an excuse for your current situation.
