Alexi Lalas: Team USA Soccer Players Should Be Required to Stand

Alexi Lalas Team USA Players Should Be Required to Stand

EXCLUSIVE

Kneeling for the national anthem ain’t exactly an epidemic … but those protests got no place on Team USA — so says American soccer legend Alexi Lalas

We got Lalas at LAX … and the former USMNT star told TMZ Sports where he stood on the whole athletes-taking-a-knee debate.  

“When you’re representing your country for the national team … you should be required to stand.”

But to be clear — “There’s a difference between representing your country in the international game and representing your club.”

Basically, Alexi doesn’t have Donald Trump-level disgust with the NFL movement … but he’s takin’ a stand when it comes to reppin’ the red, white and blue.

Team USA’s Jermaine Jones feels the same … and doesn’t think it’s gonna happen in the MLS either.
