U.S. Soccer: After the Gold Cup, Where Do We Go from Here?

The United States men’s soccer team did what it was supposed to do, making it to the Gold Cup Final. Right?

It’s happened again: The U.S. national team has qualified for the finals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and is currently ranked 11th in the world.
