In slow motion it looks like a bit of an embelishment on the PK, but whoever said it was outside the area, I'm not seeing it.
Stupid f*cking Ref. Score should've been 2-1.
Nice goal by Rubin.
I saw it wrong. It was in the area. Hard to argue with he call.
Most of those mexican kids already in a professional team training world. already have a contract.
we will never learn.
I mean half our squad called up plays for neighborhood FC or metro FC.
ALl of the mexican players are on a professional team and in training with them.
when will we learn?
That didn't matter when we won the Nike friendlies.
He doesn't seem to touch him from what I can see. Not that it really matters.
That's the difference! We look good now and I like what I see but this is the point when we get left behind bc this is the stage when the pro environment intensifies physically and mentally. See when u fail at Bradenton u go home as a star and play soccer and Xbox vs in brasil to a disappointed family and agent and loss of money. The pressure and motivation and desire is unmatched in US. I experienced that environment first hand thru personal experience with me son who finally admitted after 6 month trial that he realized he was fooling himself "I am not that good". Well he was that good but the day to day hunger and fight was not there and they told him that in so many words. He has matured now and hopefully he adjusts and fights at the next opportunity. That's why no matter the arguments presented about the US developmental system, we will NEVER reach the upper echelons till we make fundamental meaningful changes to mls pro development pipeline ie sign kids and developmental leagues all way up to 1st team.
I wonder how those Brazilian kids' parents were after we beat them last year.
That was last year! Bet u a thousand dollars brazil makes it farther at next u17 world cup 2013 than we do. Just to let u know that was a makeshift squad bc the A team was at another tournament and some of top players werent released by their clubs. So I am as proud as u that we won but I recommend u temper your enthusiasm so your fall from bliss next year is not so hard.
We could make it farther, but not with the current group of players. Residency is not helping our U17 nats imo because it prevents many kids in the DA from being scouted and brought into the national team program.
At this point is Bradenton really needed anymore? Wouldn't the money be better spent on coaching education through out the country?
Yes, that would be a better use of the money IMO, but bradenton will survive for at least another decade based on just the first class ever to come out of it.
I disagree. The DA players are constantly being evaluated by National Team staff. There games are scouted and players that was not on the radar are being invited to Training Centers for further evaluations. If you look at the players that were at Bradenton this last semester but was not invited to the Costa Rica trip and were able to play with there DA teams during the showcase/playoffs those players were some of the better players on the field. I noticed one player that didn't make any international or traveling domestic trips with the U17 but was named one of the top XI players at the showcase/playoffs. Sure there may be a player or two that deserve to be at Bradenton but to say that the program is holding more deserving DA players back in favor of players that are currently there is a stretch for me.
Agree with P4P, not Ironkick here. If anything, Bradenton is forcing us to take a very serious look throughout the DA for potential adds to the next semester in Bradenton. Four players were added – largely through DA scouting – for the recent Costa Rica trip, a couple of players a week visited Bradenton throughout the spring, and you can expect many more to be added for the upcoming camp this summer.
Bradenton is not perfect, but the issue here isn't that we don't try to scout and bring new players in. Within the DA, at least, I believe US Soccer has made significant strides in the past few years.
We're still early enough in this cycle that new players have a shot, but let's see how things evolve. Under Cabrera, our U17 starters did become entrenched, and we ended up stuck with early maturers like Marlon Duran.
Wow, we looked totally outclassed in that vid. Congrats to Mexico, those 17 year olds looked very good.
Who is being called into camp next week in LA? Are there a lot of new players?

How old is Abraham Romero? That is the guy that saved a penalty against the Colombian U15s. Actually, I see a lot of other U15 players.
Should be interesting for the kids still playing in the Developmental Academy.
Abraham Romero is actually a U14('98), that went on the trip with the U15s...and is now with the U17s. Pretty impressive.
