GOALNEWS is a magazine to instill confidence and self-assurance to our readers, either players, coaches, fans, by recognizing and exposing the quality, the good, the strong, the technical, passionate American soccer, the high level of its professional competitions on both men and women national teams and leagues.
We can’t help but think of how grateful we are for the support of you, our reader.
We do what we do to bring the soccer community closer to American soccer. That has been our main priority since our business news inception.
When U.S. national men’s soccer team didn’t qualify for World Cup 2018 in Russia caused a huge distress on American soccer community. Being one of the top two best team in the Concacaf region and practically qualified, all it needed was one point, a simple tie with the weakest opponent in the hexagonal. The unexplainable loss for a weaker team really hurts.
In our understanding this happened because of a “shaking down” in the self-confidence of American national team players by their European coach that didn’t believe in American soccer. In this coach’s defense, we must say that his perception is shared by the world soccer community: American soccer is new, not good enough, no traditions. This coach went further to the point to say that if the player didn’t play outside of United States he’d have fewer chances to be called for the national team.
This has been a very exciting starting for us with the online version of our magazine. Feedback has been fantastic and we have more to come in 2021!
