    That's why I don't use the term. Any player who's appeared in a CONCACAF NT competition has competed on an international level. That's not saying much.

    I get the sense that people who say "international quality" really mean "World Cup quality"... ignoring the fact that every national team outside CONMEBOL plays mostly opponents that aren't World Cup quality.

    That's a much better term. World Cup quality means something.

    England is up 5-1 at the half against Kosovo, who are 20 Fifa ranks behind Trinidad and Tobago. International Quality!
