Here is a quick #5 question interview with Coach Glenn Van Der Kraan: Question 1: The World Cup just ended. Who was your pre tournament pick and why? CGVDK: Although I will always pick Netherlands, Germany was my pick because of all the home grown talent now coming into their prime. Question 2: Who is going to be your pick in Russia for the next World Cup? CGVDK: I want to pick Holland, but I think it will be Germany again as I believe that they will dominate the soccer landscape for the next 6-7 years like Spain has done for a while. Question 3: What do you think about our goalkeeper here with the Nomads? CGVDK: The goalkeeper is Superman! He is made out of steel. He works hard and is a great lad. Question 4: Now that you have been training the Nomads for 2 days, what can you say about your experience? CGVDK: It has been amazing with their work ethic and passion for the game. Question 5: What do you believe US Soccer needs to do to get past the Round of 16 in the next World Cup? CGVDK: First, the instruction of the youth in U6 through the U13 must be stronger so as they have the skills already before they compete in international competition. In time, they could have the talent to compete. We will see.
