-- Is -- US soccer coach Bob Bradley who's been in the news a minute and every bar in America law he has been in the bars.
But people in bars watch soccer's world trying to say but Bob is here in a big fan of yours and congratulations.
I getting to the sweet sixteen but never enough right.
It's never enough.
A tough feeling because I think after the first round we felt we were on the verge of some debate.
-- what happened on the first of all you're we'll get your future in a minute but.
You know your team isn't there -- not out of their prime but they're certainly into their prime right the -- was -- mean that what what was the issue.
You lost -- for -- that we lost and sometimes soccer can be cruel game I think it's a day when.
And Ghana had three chances and scored two goals and we had five or six good chances.
Our only goal came on a penalty kick.
-- on that respect.
Just the day when it didn't go way beyond the mistakes or directory what I consider one of the worst calls ever it do you think there ought to be.
Replays of the soccer should they go -- review these -- in in a tournament that is sole important -- to you but for the entire world.
So I'd like to see.
In terms of the goal line anything that's over the line needs to be a goal.
But I think that's where I would stop.
I think when you get to all sides and some other tough calls.
Probably at the moment we don't need to.
Be using replay for those kind of situations but I think you're right so clearly such a poor poor refereeing call right there.
That affected your team greatly and American soccer fans.
-- are any left -- Chicago.
But you know of those should be reviewed I think don't you mean.
I think when when there's bullets over the line.
You know we saw that in the game England vs Germany you know the ball was a yard over -- line.
Assistant referee didn't see it the referee didn't see it and everyone else in the stadium did.
You know soccer to me is always been.
The sport in the future in this country obviously.
We tell me -- because -- -- you -- -- for a lot why it's not as popular worldwide.
I think sometimes people have thought that we would go.
Skipping steps all the way to the top very quickly -- and I think the rise of soccer has been more one step at a time.
But this time around even in the last two days in some back detectives.
There's a real.
Sense of pride about our team.
As we look forward.
United States is beating again to host the World Cup in in either 2018 or 20/20 two.
And if we can continue with the momentum of this World Cup Major League soccer has been real important in the growth of of soccer in this country.
Now we need to keep doing a better job developing our younger players and region and to.
Inner cities for talent so there's a lot of things going on that I think will pushes further it's amazing to me why -- more popular because.
You know obviously soccer moms is part of our lingo.
Every kid play soccer mine mine -- all and but it's somehow doesn't continue it doesn't translate.
Into a big national sport -- The competition -- part of it and certainly in the US basketball.
Football baseball sports.
With long histories and traditions but I think that in recent years soccer's -- -- its own traditions and histories and and I think that will see it continue to grow and and I think to future's bright.
-- -- you know.
You give boys or girl -- -- of the boy who'd -- who does not play soccer but I'm my girl my little girl loves it now -- seven.
And especially after the World Cup in fact we've been we've been talking about it a lot at home and see she got into the World Cup.
And then we're -- -- the women's national team game when they play up in Hartford a few weeks because she immediately want to know after watching the World Cup two girls play off.
You know on TV and things like that's of course and then we'll show -- watched.
And I found myself watching the women's professionally which is the WPS in Iraq this day and then they're watching their all star game last night she she said -- and you know what's in the fox soccer channel everything else and we're gonna go to women's national team and she loves soccer especially if the World Cup so that's got -- -- within.
We're joined by the coach the US soccer team Bob Bradley -- great guy great athlete good shape to you look like Q you thought you could simply understand Michael.
Pick my spots blood it give him what he would do what's gonna happen -- a lot of talking chatter but use leading either on your owner by four story can stay -- -- one.
I think after the four years.
Everybody needs a little time to assess you're gone both sides not necessarily explosive -- -- stay in the soccer game if you go.
Mama -- for life -- love what I do Riley and and if you stay what's your biggest channel challenge and your players are getting any younger means.
The on this team had a good balance there's a core of guys that will certainly be around the and and 2014 -- the World Cup's and Brazil.
Taken the good things from this World Cup making sure that the guys.
Get into better clubs.
We we've got guys doing well in durable we could still use to have some guys play with -- with some of the top teams.
In the elite eight right now some great match -- -- we'll do this quickly Argentina Germany's that it got to be one of my favorite matches coming.
I think everyone's surprise that that's a -- in a quarter form mentally maybe people expected those teams to go further but those two great teams.
I'll take Argentina and bet you'll.
You'll take a coach exactly argue those guy hates Betsy -- Bob thank you for joining -- good luck I know whatever you -- it's going to be greater Pitt and thank you thank you very much.
