17/100 US Men’s Soccer Team

Recently it has come to my attention that the United States Men's Soccer Team has been coming under a lot of fire about not being American.

This really isn't that big of a deal, when it comes to soccer, because a lot of national teams are the same way, some worse then others. The US team isn't any different. I think that people are just making a big deal about it, because we are Americans and we are proud of that. I assure thought that every player is American in some aspect. They might have different nationalities, but what American doesn't now days.

Here are just a few of the players that are on the US National Team:
Landon Dononvan-Everybody seems to love, and he currently plays for the LA Galaxy and has played overseas. His Father is from Canada, but he was born in California.
Jozy Altidore-Has played in the MLS, and currently plays overseas. Both parents are from Haite, but he was born in New Jersey.
Tim Howard-The highly tauted Goal Keeper for US this year, currently plays in the English Premier League. Mother is from Hungary. Tim was born and raised in New Jersey.
Benny Feilhaber-Although wasn't born in the US, has been in the US since the age of 6, and was born in Brazil, so I guess you could say he is Southern American?

Honestly I think everybody just needs to relax, and enjoy the 2010 World Cup. These players are commited to playing for the US, even if they play in a different overseas league. Here is a little hint, that means they are better. American Soccer cannot typically hold a candle to European Soccer, but it seems like we are getting there.
