10 Responses to Gulati: US will accept Copa America Invite

  1. Sams Army says:

    What does this do to the MLS season? Are we just going to sell out our domestic league for the glory of this Copa? In all seriousness, Gulati is proving to be incompotent and totally disrespectful of Major League Soccer. I am sure Garber will have something very negative to say about this.

  2. Harvey says:

    Great news! Gulati is proving he is serious about making us more competetive on the world stage. Hats off to Sunil!

  3. Gregg says:

    Sams Army,

    You are clueless!!

  4. Gregg says:

    It’s about time we finally go and play in Copa America.

    I wasn;t sure if Gulati got it but this past week he seems to be turning it around with this announcement and the Klinsman discussions.

  5. USA2010 says:

    Great news!

  6. Anonymous says:

    “This is a strong statement that we, the league, are committed to do what we can in partnership with U.S. Soccer to move this sport forward,” Garber said.

  7. Kartik says:

    So Garber is embracing this……wow, Gulati really does work the process well.

  8. Torres says:

    Some excellent news. Klinnsman will have the USA playing at a high level by the time Copa rolls around.

  9. Hernandez says:

    Fantastic!

  10. football detective says:

    Big summer next year for US Soccer with the Gold Cup followed by Copa America.

    I can hardly wait…….
