1. Cultural differences

    Prominent soccer countries have the game embedded in their DNA. This comes from- accessibility, exposure, and inspiration.

  2. Soccer does not lose players to other sports

    The best players in the world are those that understand the game; not the strongest or fastest. Understanding the game stems from culture and exposure.

  3. 3 rules for a beautiful game

    Any team can play beautifully by following 3 principles.

    • keep the ball on the floor with extremely rare exception
    • know what you're going to do before you get the ball
    • intelligently move into space off the ball

    That's it.

  4. Travling doesn't mean better competition

    You don't need to travel 3,000 miles to play at the highest level. Regional competition is sufficient but requires a collective increase in quality of play. More travel does not mean better players.
