How is the USA soccer team better than so many euro teams?
Soccer is like 10th on the list or lower when it comes to popularity and athletic people wanting to play it yet the national team is ranked higher than so many european countries who revolve around soccer.
The only euro teams i put ahead of USA are Spain, England, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, France, and Portugal. There are a hand full at the same level but many others are under USA.
No offense to anyone it is just a question
fifa rankings are flawed. ESPN are pretty solid.

I wouldn't read too much into rankings. Rather look at the USA's fixture list and results.

Lol, the thing I notice about those rankings..... USA isn't ahead of the BEST teams in Europe.
Even with that said. USA is simply capable of producing rediculous talent in any sport. We are the best! Plain and simple.

All major European countries are ahead of USA in quality. England, Germany, Russia, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Ukraine, Serbia, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Netherlands, Sweden, Croatia. USA get a high ranking because they defeat the **** teams in North America.
