Weird part was the linesman was super super slow.

Pulisic is playing extremely well vs Honduras right now. A handful of misplaced passes but he is tracking back and covering as well as aggressively turning forward and creating chances

One thing I realized is that most Europeans and maybe South Americans are convinced that Soccer is 100 percent tactical/technique based sport, therefore USA would never be relevant in terms of superpower.....

More I think about it, more I realize the inferiority complex they have......and the fear USA will dominate everything across the board

You can only have an inferiority complex when you're not largely superior dude... The US has unimaginable potential, yet they make very little of it... Will be years before they might become dangerous - if they start NOW...

In my opinion they will never be dominant. Better than now, maybe.

My impression of US culture is that they look down on "soccer" as an inferior sport, which is true physically speaking. American kids will always be pushed more towards baseball and basketball than football

if I am not mistaken Klinsmann once said that football (soccer) in the states is only for the elite ... he mentioned high end universities are the only places to practice it...
It is not the sport for all were you can learn to play on the streets like in Europe and Latin America and Africa.

True... You also don't damage your brain (that much) practising it

The biggest problem is that "public fields" in the US are never truly public. Playing pick up games kids we used to get kicked off fields all the time for not having reservations and insurance. It was really hard to find somewhere where we could play without being part of a city club and paying $1000+ a year. At least where I live in California it was and still is a nightmare finding places to play. High School and club teams are the only way to get consistent playing time and it's not cheap.

Ha! We used to play in the streets and in car parks (parking lots for you I guess :P ). The latter are still popular but I haven't seen someone playing in the streets in a long time.

More or less I mean, USA in general. Not in football, but pretty much everything else.

USA is across the board dominant in almost everything, therefore, football is one thing that USA Mens were never a superpower with and if the rest of the world loses that to USA, what do everyone else have than? Rugby? Cricket? Things no one cares about in the states.

That is where the inferiority complex is

Well, I could argue that there's a lot of things no one OUTSIDE the US cares about as well...
