Summary
In 2017, Team USA failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup for the first time since 1986. While this setback has forced US Soccer to reevaluate the United States Men s National Team program, as a country the United States has continued to embrace the sport of soccer. Youth coaching and development standards are continuously improving, and on the professional level, play on the field has never been better as Major League Soccer is thriving, and Americans are succeeding beyond our borders as well. Team USA explores the history of the struggle to make soccer popular in America, the ups and downs those struggles meant on the world stage, and the triumphs of the stars that fought that struggle. From Christian Pulisic to DeAndre Yedlin, get a close-up look at the stars of tomorrow, as Team USA begins the journey to the next World Cup. Every book in The Road to the World s Most Popular Cup series provides an in depth look at the biggest event in your favorite sport and what it takes for the athletes and their teams to get there. Each title in this series includes original infographics, a Getting Oriented with the Terms section to educate readers on terms that will be used throughout the series relating to soccer, color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in soccer history via a video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader s comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader s knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field
