It was a game the United States was favored to win but after allowing an overtime goal in losing to wanna -- USA soccer fell short of its World Cup dream at least advance into the quarterfinals.
Now the team is back from the trip to South Africa and many are left with questions.
Up in the year but they have simply one over this country in the process.
Bob Bradley and coaching that USA soccer has been since 2006 Georgia since studio Bob congratulations.
Brian thank you you converted a lot of us sports fans a lot of Americans to sack -- -- -- any idea what was happening in building when you over in South Africa.
While we were there I didn't.
Just focused on the job but been back for two days and everywhere we go we get a sense that people love this -- did you get the sense that the rest of the world -- this.
Because they would headlines in Spain in Argentina like why don't other teams play with this kinda far.
-- the last two years we've gotten a great deal of praise from international press.
Even when I've seen players from some opposing team's -- is they have a lot of good things to say about our team.
-- I'm sure you credit you some of the headlines as we roll through that would -- have been you probably didn't read good to have folks in the of the team -- playing.
But from the New York Times to -- -- Sacramento -- -- all sing it singing your praises.
You'll be always want to have a team that if fans believe it and if fans are proud of in this time round our guys were committed to the job and and I think Americans still -- teams that -- part -- -- the better team than done.
Was at a deemed it Bob Bradley looks back and says you should one I think so yeah.
And how do you deal with that.
It's a disappointment.
On the other hand soccer sometimes.
Can be like that and and the expectations were created.
Based upon our strong first round performances the team played well and I think in the process before excited about us going far -- you when you group.
And that's never been done hadn't done like fifty years so you when you -- go in and you get -- out in very many people that's enough.
Bob is -- enough to get you another four year contract.
I'm not sure I think it's normal that when you've been involved for four years.
That everybody steps back and there's a little bit of a period where assessments are done.
Right and -- would you accept -- -- you deal would you accept any deal it doesn't get to the next we'll come.
It's early to say.
Again I think it's a two way street US soccer has to think about the future.
Certainly when you've coached that team for four years sometimes commute time a little bit of time to -- -- to.
Have you been separating yourself father from coach your son was extraordinary.
This stuff he did off the ball as well as his goal -- stood out.
Have you looked back as a dad yet and say I cannot believe so good this kid is of mine Michael Bradley.
-- When war with our team he's part of it he's player that works hard -- he's just part of a strong group.
Do you tell everybody how -- his mom is.
That is how great lacrosse player and loves his dad well we we we certainly -- give credit to my wife.
And also along the way I think he's had some some good influences.
From players -- -- Wright and -- a pleasure to see you again before and after congratulations on a wonderful run and hopefully get four more years thank you very much all right.
