After a disappointing World Cup, the United States soccer team has offered an explanation: They did not expect the presence of teams from other countries. "Many players were blown away when they saw we had to play the Czech Republic," says US coach Bruce Arena. "It took them by surprise." Particularly the youngest American players were baffled. "In the United States," says forward Eddie Johnson, "teams win basketball and baseball world championships just by playing other American teams. I thought maybe we would play Canada but I never thought we had to play teams from another continent to become soccer world champions." US star Landon Donovan, agrees. "It's unfair," he says. "Dwayne Wade and the guys in Miami have just become world champions by playing Dallas. They never had to play Ghana or Italy."
