For all intents and purposes, the year 2010 is over for international soccer. That means that now is just as good a time as any to take a step back and look at where the United States Men's National Soccer Team goes from here. After winning their World Cup group for the first time in the nation's history, becoming known for playing with grit and honesty and having a penchant for cardiac performances throughout the tournament, the Americans ended their World Cup in the Round of 16 against Ghana. However, in the latter half of 2010, a new crop of Americans has begun to rise through the youth ranks with perhaps one of the most promising crops in recent memory.
Members of the Don't Tread On This supporters group Matt Bick and Sean Monaghan will look through what the future of the MNT holds. Matt Bick has been writing for the Bleacher Report since the end of the 2010 World Cup and has written several articles examining American youth prospects and their potential on the international stage. Sean Monaghan is a long time fan of the US Men's National Team and a former blogger about the Yanks. He is seeking to find a way to become the next Yank to make his name overseas. This gives him the perfect insight on what to expect from the next generation of American talent.
Now that we've gone through the introductions, let's take a look at what may be in store for the Yanks in 2011.
