Dan Flynn's exit as U.S. Soccer CEO had been expected for months, but with his departure date set, it remains to be seen who will step into his influential role. While it seems unlikely, an outsider candidate would be best for a number of reasons.
The gap in talent, quality and matchday confidence is evident. Mexico's men's national team is miles ahead of the USA's, and there's plenty of work to be done in order for the USMNT to achieve a revival in time for the next World Cup.
Fresh off being named one of the finalists for FIFA's 'Best' women's player of 2019, Alex Morgan sounds off about the honor, the USWNT coaching search, the fight vs. U.S. Soccer, her thoughts on Cristiano Ronaldo and taking NWSL to the next level.
