The United States women's national soccer team, often referred to as USWNT, represents the United States of America in international association football competitions. It is controlled by United States Soccer Federation and competes in CONCACAF (the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football). The U.S. team won the first ever Women's World Cup in 1991, and has since been a superpower in women's soccer. It is currently ranked first in the world by the FIFA Women's World Rankings. The team has also won the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup, four Olympic women's gold medals (1996, 2004, 2008 and 2012) and nine Algarve Cups (2000, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013).
So the appropriate question, it would seem to me, is how were these women trained? Were they trained as is described above according to an alleged European model?

Our team won a few games on strong defense and the occasional good shot; the A team lost every time. The coaches actually told the parents on the other team "You all think like Americans - want to win all the time. We are teaching them to be great when they are 15 and 16." Let's hope they play that long. Winning is not everything, but losing is nothing.
