I have to admit I was a bit surprised by Wahl's skepticism vis-a-vis Project 2010. With our budding young talent, I had just assumed that the US would be a fairly serious contender by then. I thought it was a given, actually. I mean, we already have a Final 8 under our belts...and many say we were unlucky not to make the Final four. And that team had only one non-goalkeeper with a serious European pedigree. I don't think I need to mention to you how markedly that number will increase just by 2006...not to mention 2010. Listen, I'm not unrealistic....USA will not be Brazil or Germany (or England, or Netherlands) by 2010. USA may never be those world powers. But I definitely think the USA could be a darkhorse favorite in '06 much the way Colombia was a darkhorse favorite in '94. I don't think I'm going out on a limb in saying that at all....am I too naive?
