Morganti: "United States Soccer Is An Absolute Disgrace"

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The U.S. Men's National Soccer Team made it through Group G---aka the 'Group Of Death'---in the 2014 World Cup before being eliminated by Belgium in the round of 16 on Tuesday. In group play, the U.S. advanced beating Ghana in their first match, despite drawing with Portugal and losing to Germany.

While the U.S. and some of their fans may be content with their effort, Al Morganti of the WIP Morning Show is not.

"Bottom line, and I enjoyed the hell out of it, U.S. soccer is a disgrace," Morganti said Wednesday on the 94WIP Morning Show. "It's a complete disgrace. No, it is a worldwide---the United States soccer is an absolute disgrace. Most of the disgrace comes because they're happy with what happened. They got hammered over there and it took an unbelievable effort by a goaltender to just get 'em through and then everybody was happy and holding them up, like what a great effort. This is a big country with great athletes. This a disgrace that they're happy with the outcome of the World Cup. It shows you how irrelevant the sport is, and fact of the matter is, you had to rely on Germans to get through even a little bit. If it wasn't for the damn German kid that came in, you call him whatever you want---we have millions of people playing this sport. It's never going to develop. It is an absolute national disgrace that they're happy with that effort."
