That map doesn't mean anything... stats are a bitch. :P
It just shows in what sport a country is the best... Waterpolo is a sport, but not that popular even for useless stats.
Some countries are the best in football which that map shows but still suck at football, no disrespect. :P

Also, if it's according to the FIFA World Rankings, I'd much rather be not first like Argentina and actually win something like Germany
Thanks for nothing, :pep: !!

Lot's of things are considered sports now...

Even online gaming and poker is a "sport."

Evidently the map isn't taking that definition of sport into consideration. ;)

I think USA will be up there in our lifetime, up there among the best teams, but I'll stop far short of predicting them winning the WC. A lot of teams as good or better than the USA are still waiting to win it, or even get close, so I'm not so confident. About the only thing you can count on in any WC is Germany reaching at least the quarter-finals. Everything else is a crapshoot.

My logic....

USA has too much money and resources for it not to produce a good team in the near future. Just has to get the kids when their young to pick soccer over american football and basketball

They invested so much into olympic sports, which allow them to dominate in the Olympics, now the shift is to winning the young kids to groom them in soccer.

I had a lot of debates with people about this, however, the game of football is become more and more physical. Guys like Ronaldo are dominating the game mainly due to significant physical advantage over everyone else, not so much technical superiority. In the USA, you get these basketball/american football players to start playing soccer, it's a whole different ballgame for USA.

^ I agree overall. There's a vast talent pool of athletes and switching them to football (I stopped saying "soccer" :) ) should pay huge dividends. It's just that there are so many variables when it comes to actually winning it. World Cups being only every four years, you need the right players to peak at the right time. I'm sure there is a nation or two or three out there who could have been much more successful but just never had their best players peaking at the right time. They can be a year early or a year late, and that's it - the chance is gone. Plus you need a lot of good fortune as well. So, I agree with you, but when I think of the Netherlands never having won it, I just can't be confident of a USA victory. Even if they can become perrenial (or should I say quad-perrenial) semi-finalists, they still might not be able to take the next two steps and win it.

Statistics are like miniskirts . What they reveal is tantalizing, but what they hide is crucial.

What an amazing match that Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors was.Lebron James has officially cemented his place as one of the best ever basketball players.

Cavaliers made a miracle! I repeat - they made a miracle last night! They were losing 3-1 and in the end won 3-4 and with a style - 2 out of 3 games they won on side in Oracle Arena! Nobody did this before. Nobody!
3-4 o'clock in the morning, I decided to watch the game even though I haven't watched the NBA games(not a single one) for the last 5-6 years and then I witness the historic moment. =D>

Curry was so desperate. I don't like James, but he played like a monster last night. Entire final he played like crazy.
