Seems like this was a transition/set up chapter for the WC. We can now say that they are in California.
Before the nationals, they had a filler chapter/episode as well, Prince of Yakiniku. So this isn't any different.
I guess no one specifically wins the pick up contest? :P
Maybe there will be a Russian U-17 team too? XD
What's Osamu doing here? Is he acting as Gin's support, or has he been drafted in as a U-17 coach?
His appearance was so random.
Ryoma is literally wearing the American flag now. I cannot put it in words just how much this pleases me. This is so American it makes me proud to be American despite the fact I'm Canadian. It's beautiful.
America out of 10.
An illusion would make a lot more sense.
I guess next chapters will probably focus on introducing a few more players from other teams and maybe training, and then we get to the U-17 World Cup.
This is just like Prince of Yakiniku before National Finals. I guess how Ryoma will react to his other fellow MSers when he hears that he has been chosen as the last Mser representative.
I want to hear Konomi's nonsensical explanation for Byodouin's new move.
^ That's everything I've been thinking summed up :P
I'm hoping there'll be more mentions about which countries are participating.
Then other possible countries are Spain, Russia, Egypt or India (based on Byodouin's world moves, maybe those countries might appear since he trained on them), and other possible choices but mainly the noteworthy ones are the 5 I mentioned above.
An interesting theory that I have is that because they're in the US, Yukimura might take the surgery to fully cure his disease before the World Cup so he can play at his best, since Kimijima told Marui that there's a doctor in America that can heal him. What do you guys think about this?

I honestly expect these next few months as introducing new teams, showing off their moves and the preliminaries. The strongest teams decimate their opponents and set up the conflict between the main teams. They also will probbaly introduce the middle school division and that arc.
I'm thinking there will be an Australian team and Chinese too. The Chinese team sort of like a tribute to the Chinese fans who've made a drama based on PoT. And an Australian team because tennis (and soccer/football) are quite a huge here.
It would benefit Yukimura if he had the surgery. He could be a boss after recovery.
