Americans love to win. But when it comes to soccer, the world’s most popular sport, the U.S. men’s national team has historically come up short. While the women’s team has delivered three Women’s World Cup victories in as many decades, the men have not advanced past the quarter-finals in nearly ninety years. As America’s comparatively new national soccer league continues to grow its notoriously fervent fan base, and as the U.S. continues to dominate the lion’s share of world sporting events, the question must be asked: What will it take for the men to bring home the FIFA World Cup Trophy?

In I Believe That We Will Win, veteran soccer journalist Phil West delivers a compelling assessment of the history and future potential of American soccer on the international playing field. With insightful commentary and unbridled enthusiasm, West examines every aspect of the U.S. Men’s National Team and their competition, exploring how the U.S. returned to the World Cup after forty years away, the growing symbiotic relationship between the USMNT and Major League Soccer, and the cultivation of young talent through MLS academies and the US Development Academy. Along the way, West touches on the controversial tenure of former coach Jürgen Klinsmann, the role of dual-national players, Christian Pulisic and the new wave of American players playing abroad, and other issues that have engaged American soccer fans in spirited debate.

Punctuated with dozens of revealing interviews from past and current players, coaches, and journalists, I Believe That We Will Win is both the definitive history of American World Cup play and a wholehearted analysis of America’s potential to win big in the near future.
