They won that competition. They did however overhaul their ground roots football approach after a bad 2000 campaign.

Spain is another country that developed great academies.

And Panama should not have won their match. Their first goal didn't cross the line. They should have had a draw which would have put US in 4th position and playing off with Australia.

any plan that involves diverting some % of black youth away from basketball or football toward soccer i would consider the successful approach

Yes! I'm a lifelong Palace fan. Have a bad feeling for the second half, but the first one was really good. Well deserved lead I think.
