More needs to be done to grow the game

"The USSF President Sunil Gulati must reexamine how we are allocating money.
It would be really unfortunate but the way things are going, the rest of the world is catching up to the U.S. in terms of player development and even bypassing us in terms of investment in the game,” Borkowski said.
But the truth is that the investment in the game is revolving around just the national players. Following Germany’s example, it needs to be broader.
A lot of work needs to be done to lift the infrastructure and there are too many promising post college players who walk away from the game because they see no future in it.”
Borkowski also offered his support to efforts to establish a federation operated US Open Women’s Cup. This, according to Borkowski, would be of benefit to all clubs, pro and amateur alike, and bring added attention to women’s soccer in the country.
