Here, I'd like to bring up a debate about "The Age Issue" and our National Team. It seems as if everyone on this board believes that we should always call in the younger players, since they are young and thus will have years to play together and, hopefully, win a World Cup in the future. While this reasoning makes some sense, I personally think people need to stop worrying so much about the age of players. We need to call in players who are in top form, regardless of age. Luca Toni was not capped by Italy until he was 27 years old, and he has done wonderuflly well; people need to realize that each players' careers follow very unique paths. Few can argue that Brian McBride is not the best American striker at the moment (though injured), and he is the oldest of the bunch. What we need to all understand is that not everyone can be Messi, Ronaldo, or the like who achieve tremendous success at a young age. Our younger players certainly have incredible potential, but guys like Kamani Hill and Charlie Davies should NOT be in camp. We need players who are in form, scoring goals, ect., regardless of age. Davy Arnaud has been playing well, and deserves his shot. This is how we will achieve success. Another potential topic of discussion: Do American soccer players reach their athletic prime at a later age than European players? Look at McBride...most European players can not play at that level at his age. It just seems to me that our players have ALWAYS come into their prime around 30, while European players have around 27-28. Discuss.
