Steel Workers Could Not Compete
Referring to reference made in these columns of an American team competing in the Olympics to be held in Brussels in 1920, it is learned that the players on the Bethlehem Steel team or in fact any other club in this country could not compete. The plan was suggested as a way of determining the rating of the American teams which English enthusiasts contend are far inferior to those in their country. All the big teams in England and in fact every other country are professional aggregation and the status is considered the same for the American clubs. However, soccer is a booming sport among the many colleges in America and a team selected from these players could qualify for entrance into the Olympics.
