Americans dont even care about soccer. 1.we have a ton of better sports to care about. (2)not getting to host it means nothing. we just get greedy to have everything in our spotlight. 3.even if we hosted nobody would care because we suck at soccer. they cover American soccer like were the special kid.4 "the US might win more than 1 qualifier this time!"
the country they picked didnt make sense, but at least its in a country that cares about the sport. 5.we all know they wont be able to get all those air conditioned stadiums built by then anyways.
1. that's an opinion.
2. But getting to host it means everything. do your research.
3. Where have you been the last 10 years? The U.S. has a legitimate team with many players in Europe. They didn't face Brazil in the 2009 Confederations Cup final for nothing(eliminating the eventual World Cup winner in Spain eventually and current Euro champion in the process).
4.all you need to do is win one qualifying stage to compete in the World Cup in the CONCACAF region so I don't see what the problem is.
5. Am I mistaken or isn't Qatar an oil exporting country? Yeah, im sure they won't be able to build the stadiums by then.
