It's not too far, at all. Build the best soccer team, plain and simple. I don't care if there's not a single white American on this team at all, I want whoever the best players we can get, from wherever they are from. If you're building the best team you can build, it's going to end up diverse in the end because soccer is a global sport.
Ok so THIS is way too far in the other direction. Like it or not, social issues and diversity within sports are unavoidable, if not integral. Representation matters. You shouldn't choose a shittier player over a better one because of where he was born, but if all/most of your players come from similar backgrounds, then you're actively not picking the best players.
We've seen one team in this country intentionally build a team that wasn't diverse at all, and that was Chivas USA. And look how that ended up. One of the worst teams ever towards the end, with the worst attendance ever, and the league had to buy them out. So I think everyone knows going out of your way to build a team without diversity doesn't work anyways
