It has been a year to the day since Gregg Berhalter was hired as manager of the U.S. men's national team. In 2019, the USMNT was largely treading water. In fact, its collective chin has inched dangerously close to the waterline at times.

The victories were expected, especially considering the CONCACAF-heavy schedule and the fact that just two of the Americans' 18 games were held outside the United States. Yet the loss to Canada in October raised alarm bells, and fans are still waiting for a signature...

Is MLS next for Afshin Ghotbi, U.S. soccer's international globetrotter?

New Buriram coach Afshin Ghotbi
Afshin Ghotbi's career in soccer has taken him to Los Angeles, South Korea, Iran and, now, China.

In 2000, Afshin Ghotbi found himself marveling at where life had taken him. Here was an Iranian-born, American-raised soccer coach, heading to Hong Kong from Los Angeles on a British Airways flight so he could interview with a Dutchman to be an assistant coach for South Korea's national team.

"If that's not globalization, I'm not sure what is," he said with a laugh during an exclusive interview with ESPN FC.

Ghotbi's globetrotting ways haven't stopped. His coaching career has spanned three decades...
