By James RobertsThe US national team is not going anywhere anytime soon, and for good reason.
After the World Cup, the US was able to put together a team that was able, through the use of a mix of talent, to reach the top of the world.
The Americans have had some solid years and are now looking to continue that trend by getting back to winning ways.
With that in mind, I spoke with US Soccer president Sunil Gulati about what’s ahead for the US women’s national team.
Here’s what he had to say:Q:What are some of the things that you’re looking at?
Gulati: We have some interesting things going on.
I think our women are a little bit underachieving right now.
Our team is very, very talented.
We’re looking to improve a lot.
So we’re working on some things that we think are going to help our team.
And we have some players that are looking to come back.
We have to keep them engaged.
We want to be able to compete with the best teams around the world in our pool.
We need to continue to add players.
We’ve got some good talent on our roster.
Q:Do you see yourself getting more players in the future?
I mean, that’s what we’re focused on.
It’s the next step.
We think we have the right talent to compete.
I know the team’s focused on that.
What about the youth?
Gurgman: We’re not a team of players.
I’m just going to go with what we see as the right thing to do.
There are some young players that we’ve recruited.
We don’t have enough time to do that, but we have a bunch of young players, a lot of young talent.Q
