As an American, while I am upset we didn't qualify, I have been waiting 6 years for us to finally turn over the squad and look forward to watching some of these younger kids play. US Soccer changed its development strategies roughly 10 years ago and the kids that are 18/19 are the first ones coming through that have really benefited from the changes. I think we will start to see a much steadier string of talent coming from youth ranks and I am looking forward to see CCV get in the mix with this group.
A country the size of the US shouldn't have to miss a World Cup for things to change. I love the CCV will get the opportunity but the only people watching the US for the next few years will be people who probably already support a club, rather than new fans.
