The U.S. Doesn’t Produce Champions and Other Soccer Statements
Clubs from Mexico have dominated the CONCACAF Champions League. (Note: CONCACAF stands for the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football.)
In fact, no other country has won this 24 soccer club competition since they changed the format in 2008 (to emulate the far more popular and successful European version known as the UEFA Champions League).
This particular competition suffers from a lack of true interest north of Mexico. Few in the U.S. follow and fewer still can be roused enough to cheer their Major League Soccer (MLS) team on to victory.
Eight teams remain in the 2015-2016 edition. Four U.S. clubs vs. four Mexican clubs. The team with the highest aggregate score over two games (home/away) advances to the next round.
Your DC United just happens to be one of the remaining U.S. clubs!
They play the second leg of the Quarterfinals tonight, March 1st, at RFK Stadium against the Mexican side, Club Queretaro. So rouse yourself and get your tickets now!
DC United lost 2-0 on the road to Queretaro last week, so they have their work cut out for them. But you already knew that. Let’s see if the U.S. has what it takes.
