By Jason Davis – WASHINGTON, DC (Mar 24, 2017) US Soccer Players - It's not that Bruce Arena's semi-regular musings on the state of American soccer didn't matter while he was leading the LA Galaxy.

Though it's easy to think that this already happened, CONCACAF's lengthy route to naming the 2017 Gold Cup field finally concluded on Tuesday. At a media event at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, CONCACAF officially set the groups for this summer's competition. The USMNT is the seeded team in Group B and will play Panama, Martinique, and either Haiti or Nicaragua depending on a final qualifier.
This new US Soccer "stand for the anthem or else" policy is silly, as is the fact that punishment for disobeying the edict will not be uniform. Not only is this policy decidedly un-American, it's all set up to be unevenly judged. And I hate to break it to Soccer House, but (whether or not it is intended to be) it also reeks of being one more way to exert control over the ladies.
The USMNT won Group D in the second stage of the CONCACAF U-20 Championships, advancing to the U-20 World Cup. The USMNT beat El Salvador 2-1 on Friday in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Fair enough in theory, but it's worth asking how the clubs are going to respond to UEFA attempting to impose limits.
The soccer news starts with an MLS result in the Champions League. FC Dallas came back to take the first-leg of their semifinal series with Pachuca 2-1 at Toyota Stadium. With Omar Gonzalez in Pachuca's starting eleven, Franco Jara put them up in the 3rd minute. Maxi Urruti equalized for Dallas in the 44th with Kellyn Acosta scoring from a free kick in the 58th.
The biggest takeaway from the USMNT winning the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championships was job done. Rough starts happen. So do recoveries, with teams figuring things out while playing against time. Losing is acceptable as long as a team moves on. That's what the USMNT did, turning their issues into that classic coaching cliche "the teachable moment".
