History

First international outside Britain

In 1885, the U.S. and Canada played the first unofficial international match held outside of Great Britain. The Canadians defeated the Americans 1-0 in Newark, New Jersey.[3] The American side had their revenge the following year, in 1886, when they beat the Canadians 1-0, also in Newark. These two matches were the only internationals played outside of the United Kingdom in the 19th century. Thirty years later, the Americans would play their first official international match by travelling to face Sweden in Stockholm, where the USA won 1-0.

1930: The first World Cup

First win ever

In the 1930 FIFA World Cup, the U.S. won the first match in World Cup history, defeating Belgium 3-0 at Estadio Gran Parque Central in Montevideo, Uruguay. The match occurred simultaneously with another "first game" across town in Estadio Pocitos where France defeated Mexico.

First World Cup hat-trick

In the next fixture, USA again won 3-0, this time against Paraguay. Some controversy had ensued for seven decades over the scoring, as American Bert Patenaude may or may not have scored the first hat-trick in World Cup history. FIFA had generally maintained that Patenaude scored only two goals, the second of the three goals being credited to teammate Tom Florie.[5] but his teammates and the U.S. Soccer Federation among other sources credited Patenaude with notching three.[6][7] Other sources claimed that it was an own goal by Paraguayan Ramon Gonzales.[8][9]
However, FIFA announced on 10 November 2006 that it had accepted evidence from "various historians and football fans" and received confirmation from the United States Soccer Federation that Patenaude scored all three goals, and was indeed the first person to score a hat-trick in World Cup play, clearing up a 76-year-old error.[10][11] Bert Patenaude. ...

Semi-finalists

In that first World Cup, the American side lost a one-sided match to Argentina, 6-1, after advancing to the semi-finals. This is still the all-time highest World Cup finish by the men's team. The 1930 tournament was unique in that no third place match was played and no third place trophy was awarded to either the United States or fellow semi-finalists Yugoslavia. However, FIFA documents have listed the U.S. finish as 3rd place, a designation that was apparently retroactive. It remains unclear whether FIFA simply chose to list the U.S. above Yugoslavia for alphabetical reasons or because the U.S. had a superior goal difference to Yugoslavia over the course of the tournament. Some British soccer historians have claimed that the U.S. team at that competition was loaded with non-native players from British professional leagues, but the facts do not support that assertion. There were six British-born players on the 1930 team, all of whom played in the team's three World Cup matches. At the time of the 1930 World Cup, the combined experience of those six players in British professional leagues was two games, both by a single player in the English Third Division (equivalent to today's Football League One). Four of the six had come to the United States as teenagers or younger. Three of the six never played professionally in Britain; their pro careers were entirely in North America. In the 1920s, there was a thriving professional league in the United States, and the league survived into the mid-1930s. Two of the six did have significant professional careers in Britain, but not until after 1930. All 16 members of the 1930 World Cup team were living in the United States by 1928.[12] Semi-final is the match in a knockout phrase of a competition, usually in sports, where the final four teams/individuals battle out for the Grand Finals. ...

1950: Victory against England

The 1950 FIFA World Cup is memorable in the English-speaking world for the U.S. team pulling off one of the greatest upsets in football history, handing England a devastating result in its first ever World Cup loss, 1-0, after England had recently beaten the rest of Europe 6-1 in an exhibition match. A recent movie named The Miracle Match commemorates the upset. Like England, the U.S. failed to advance from group play after losing to Chile and Spain.

1980s

After the growing enthusiasm caused by the rise of the North American Soccer League (NASL) in the 1970s, it seemed at times as if the U.S. national team would soon become powerful players in world soccer. Such hopes were not realized, and USA were not considered a strong side in this era. From 1981 to 1983, only two international matches were played. North American Soccer League or (NASL) was a professional soccer league with teams in the United States and Canada that operated from 1968 to 1984. ...


Team America in the NASL

To provide a more stable national team program, and renew interest in the domestic league, the U.S. national team, playing as Team America, was added as a member of the NASL in the 1984 season. This side lacked the continuity and regularity of training of conventional club sides, and many players were unwilling to play for this team instead of their own clubs. Team America finished the season at the bottom of the league. Recognizing that it had not achieved their objectives, USSF cancelled this experiment and the national team was withdrawn from the NASL. Team America was a soccer team based in Washington, D.C. that played in the NASL. They only existed for one year, 1983. ... Nasl, or El Nasl, is one of the names given to the star Gamma-2 Sagittarii in the constellation Sagittarius NASL is a common abbreviation for the North American Soccer League, a defunct professional soccer league that operated between 1968 and 1984. ...


1984 Olympics

USSF targeted the 1984 Summer Olympics, held in Los Angeles, and the 1986 FIFA World Cup as means of building a national team fan base. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) provided what appeared to be a major boost to the U.S.'s chances of advancing beyond the group stage when it declared that Olympic teams from outside Europe and South America could field their full international teams, including professionals. USSF immediately rearranged its Olympic team roster, cutting many of the collegiate players, and replacing them with professionals. Despite this, the U.S. finished 1-1-1 and failed to make the second round.

Failure to qualify for 1986 World Cup

The USSF had applied to host the 1986 World Cup, but Mexico eventually won the right to hold the tournament.


In the last game of the qualifying tournament, U.S. needed only a tie against Costa Rica, whom they had beaten 3-0 in the Olympics the year before, to reach the finals. The USSF, controversially, scheduled the game at El Camino College in Torrance, California, in an area with many Costa Rican expatriates, and allowed the game to be marketed almost exclusively to the Costa Rican community, even providing Costa Rican folk dances as half time entertainment.[1] A 35th minute goal by Evaristo Coronado won the match for Costa Rica, and eliminated the U.S. from the World Cup.[2] // [[General Information]] El Camino College is a two-year public community college located in Torrance in Los Angeles County, California. ...

National Team begins to revive

By the end of 1985, there was no domestic senior outdoor league,[13] and many top U.S. players, such as John Kerr, Paul Caligiuri, Eric Eichmann and Bruce Murray moved overseas, primarily to Europe. John Kerr, Junior (born March 6, 1965 in Toronto, Ontario) is a former American soccer player. ...

In 1988, USSF offered contracts to national team players, to build a team for international matches with something of a club ethos. The national team owned the players' contracts, then loaned these players out to their club teams. This brought several players back to the sport, and combined with an influx of talent from a burgeoning grass-roots level, the team qualified for the 1990 FIFA World Cup and won the 1991 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

1990s

1990 World Cup

In 1989, FIFA named the U.S. as host of the 1994 World Cup, but it was under significant international criticism for this decision because of the weakness of the national side and the lack of a top level professional league. This criticism was relieved somewhat when, by winning their first game on the road in nearly two years in a 1-0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago through a 35th minute goal by Paul Caligiuri, U.S.A. reached the 1990 World Cup in Italy, its first World Cup finals berth in 40 years.

For the World Cup, coach Bob Gansler selected many inexperienced recent college graduates ahead of seasoned professionals like Rick Davis and Hugo Perez. They were beaten 5-1 by Czechoslovakia in its opening game, Caligiuri scoring the consolation goal. A more defensive approach in the match against host team Italy resulted in a 1-0 defeat. In the U.S.’s last game, the team fell 2-1 to Austria, despite the dismissal of Austrian Peter Artner in the 34th minute. The U.S. were eliminated with a 0-3 record.

CONCACAF Cup Success

In March 1991, the U.S. national team won the North America Cup, tying Mexico 2-2 and beating Canada 2-0. This was followed in May by a 1-0 victory over Uruguay in the World Series of Soccer. The national team then went undefeated in the 1991 Gold Cup, beating Mexico 2-0 in the semifinals and Honduras 0-0 (4-3 on penalty kicks) in the final. In 1992, the U.S. continued its run of success, taking the U.S. Cup title with victories over Ireland and Portugal, followed by a tie with Italy.

1994 World Cup hosts

The controversy over the United States having been awarded the 1994 FIFA World Cup, despite soccer being relatively unpopular in the country had continued until the tournament started. Despite soccer's lowly position in the U.S. sports' hierarchy, the 1994 tournament still holds the World Cup record for attendance at nearly 70,000 per match.[14] The U.S. opened its tournament schedule with a 1-1 tie against Switzerland in the Pontiac Silverdome in Detroit, Michigan, the first World Cup game played indoors. In its second game, the U.S. faced Colombia, ranked fourth in the world, at the Rose Bowl. Aided by an own goal from Andrés Escobar, who was later murdered in his home country for this mistake, the U.S. won 2-1. Despite a 1-0 loss to Romania in its final group game, the U.S. made it to the knockout round for the first time in modern history, avoiding the ignominy of becoming the first host nation not to advance from the group stage.
