I mean the aussie team with lads who were born in the USA while their parents worked there & spent less than 1 or 2 years there as a baby/infant & havent been back since or the players selected have a Granddad who once ate a burger and sank a Budwieser, while the real born and raised lads who played in the qualifiers that got them into the WC miss out.

 

The USA selection process has been operated in Oz & some of the selections are bizarre including a few RU players. WTF

 

Total sham, IMHO If they selected half a dozen of the very best proper Yanks it would have been a shot in the arm for the Nation and its RL future over here

 

If those players playing in the US were good enough, they would have got in Mick, pretty simple.

 

I watched the Colonial cup games we had them on the telly here. If thats indicative of the standard in the USA its pretty obvious why those guys aren't here right now for the WC
