I think the argument that the women are world class while the men stink is kind of BS. #1 you're talking about soccer/football being the world's #1 sport. Your top men's players are coming out of a much, much larger talent pool - Brazil, Argentina, England, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Africa etc - these countries all feed the top leagues and you have to be a special talent to make it to Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona etc.
The US leads the world in women's rights and certainly opportunity to play sports. They should dominate the women's game. But their players are also getting picked from a much, much smaller talent pool. This is slowly changing but the road to being considered a top women's player is a heck of a lot shorter and easier to navigate and than it is for the men's game. Most of the top women's players are white, middle class and had lots of help and support (financial & otherwise) from mom/dad (and/or US Soccer) in getting to the top of their sport.
Most of the top men's talent comes from the poor and working class areas of the countries I mentioned, they got identified at a young age, and emerge from a huge population of players. The best ones get routed to the top European teams (brokered by agents), but even the ones left over wind up playing for their domestic pro teams and are good players in their own rights.
Certainly most of US men don't have to face that, but they still have to beat those players out to play for their professional clubs. It's just a completely different ballgame that women have to deal with in order to get to the top.
The US men had a talent drought for about 10 years but that's changing. They've finally got some real talent, though most of their good players are young. But as talented as they are, they're going up against teams at World Cup with NBA all star level linups . They'll get that vs England in the upcomig World Cup. Every player in their starting 11 is a superstar. Same with Germany, same with Spain, same with Brazil and Argentina.
You can't compare the men's and women's games talent wise. There just aren't a lot of great women's teams - or women's players - worldwide right now.
Anyone who makes the argument that the US Women are better players than the men doesn't understand much about soccer. The women have been more successful - the same way Villanova is more successful than say the Indiana Pacers. But which team has more talented players?
