At halftime of the Chicago vs New England MLS match, US Soccer president Sunil Gulati joined NBC’s John Strong to discuss a number of issues facing the US squad.
The pressing issue is the USWNT coaching search, which Gulati discusses, saying he hopes to have a completed job done by the middle of May.
He also touched on the men’s side, and when asked about their aspirations at this summer’s World Cup, he said the first goal is to get through the group stage and they can “dream of more” if they can complete that goal.
Ultimately, he believes the overall culture of soccer in the United States is on the rise, with Major League Soccer leading the charge and other leagues growing as well.
