US Soccer thread. in The Tailgate Posted October 12, 2017 42 minutes ago, jschuck12001 said: Ranking club and national teams together makes no sense so I can't really respond on that, I can tell you BATE is the 100th ranked club team in the world and we could beat them with our current team (Without brooks and Tim C). My point being the Team Germany may be a top 10 side overall. Team US may not be 200, so claiming we are 30 in FIFA rankings is technically true, but has little basis for the quality of the side. Trust me, I was Caps losing in the 1st round disappointed when the US lost. We just weren't good.
