Machine Generated Transcript

Three weeks after the americans' disappointing first round knockout in the 2006 World Cup the US soccer federation immediately took action. Towards 2010 for the first order of business it was the dismissal of head coach Bruce Arena and the hiring of -- this USA coach Bob Bradley. I think I think very similar the two of them yet they've worked together for years I think are very similar. Bradley student of the game and somebody goes through a lot of film and a lot of evaluation and and really he leaves no stone unturned when he's in his coaching. I think a very serious. Demeanor than he has since it's not a you don't see a lot of laughing going on -- around going on -- with a pretty tight ship that he runs and and he wants players it. To do what he expects out of them and and he wants them to be strict discipline -- there -- daily preparation. Absolutely I think you mean. Is and we would now qualified for six World Cup's and we we kind of take that for granted. And it's not easy going -- the grocery it going to Mexico one else opera on it Trinidad to -- going to Honduras. Those are hard places to play I mean for him take. To qualify the US team was. He's done great. I think there's been. And a certain group of players that have been -- big tournaments I think he's changed the rosters to look at some players and he's brought and kind of beat teams where you bring in a lot of countries do that. Is it hinder attack I don't think so I. I think it's a great thing that we have so many players now that he could bring in that many players and and they're capable planes are -- good tip top players and I think we saw last night when they played -- that checks that it was a little difficult -- -- -- team out there wasn't. But we are still competitive and I and I think I think it only it brings the competition among the players and I think that's a good thing. They don't feel like K they're complacent because they know they have a spot certain guys. Landon Donovan I think the spotters -- spot but he still have to work hard. Keep that spot. But I I think it's attribute US soccer that many good players now. I think what happens in that. If you're successfully get to keep in the coach that you're not successful depending on on what US soccer's measuring success is that the second round is that. Quarter final semi finals World Cup final. It just depends on what's -- -- -- the president US soccer thanks to success for the team might I know. That it meant a moment to make it to the second round as it is. One form of success how the team plays the style with the team places is that creative team president. Fun team to watch that important but in the end it's all about winning if he wins for sure he'll be. The end there if if things don't go that well they usually keep coach -- for a little while and then they'd bring someone -- and for the preparation qualify for the next world. Well Bradley was not initially the first choice for the manager position of the US squad he built a strong foundation and immediately garnered success on the pitch. We live many of those achievements are counting on the cup series continues to conclude tomorrow we'll look back at 2007.
