Pele, upon finishing his career here in the U.S. told anyone wanting the beautiful game to grow in this land, grow to what Pele could envision the sport being in a nation he came to love, he told anyone listening that the sport must be urban at its core for the U.S. to successfully reach the potential it could exist at with pro soccer. This at face value often gets a straight line drawn between urban and black youth in SW Houston or South Chicago. In 1980 that could be accepted. Now that our nation is so incredibly diverse, the urban talent pool really means youth that are either new to the land and already have roots with the sport or their classmates that are Americans but have no one in their family that ever played the most dominate sport on the planet, much less drops a ball in their laps and tells them to go out in to the streets and play. One would like to think that here in 2019 every major city in our nation could be producing at least one or two very talented soccer products from their urban environment just on shear numbers available to play the damn game. This every school year. But alas, our Fed has not gone all in on Pele's advise from 40 years ago.
