If some way MLS could offer what Bundesliga or Ligue 1 and produce what they produced for their national teams then we would be golden.

I wouldnt base it on U20 world cup... Most of the best teams in the world manage get a select few to the next level. At that point its whether you're good enough or not.
What I would see is the full national teams. Who have been the most successful in recent years? Germany, Spain and France.
Specially France now that they have Mabappe, Dembele
Apart from U20 world cup which was a nice win for England they really have been irrelevant for years now. Wonder why


England's academy system is finally bearing fruit. It's not just the U-20's doing well..the U-17's made the semis of the Euros and the U-19's won the Toulon tournament again. We'll see how it goes a few years from now.

The problem is simple...pressure to succeed makes it difficult to put faith in the youth. We are familiar with Chelsea's loan policy...well they have started to sell some of their better younger players because they are developing so many. When they sell the better ones, though, they insert a discount buy back clause into the agreements.

I think England doing well should be a given in youth tournament because they are a world class country in football but yes well see how all that fruit in the future.

Still doing well on his loan, he is also another to look for to breakout eventually at striker position. Hope he goes back to Reading in championship and gets playing time.

I hope he moves on from Reading. I would rather see him move to Belgium or sign with an Eredivisie team.

Best case scenario is Eredivisie. Already familiar with country and style.

Granted it is 2nd division of Dutch soccer, but he had a brace today which takes his total to 11 for the season. Is this a kid you call in for the March friendlies?

Any word about Reading possibly recalling him? They've struggled mightily scoring goals lately.
