USMNT not headed to 2018 World Cup and people are disgusted

USMNT not headed to 2018 World Cup and people are disgusted

The match was revenge of a sort for the island nation, which was infamously eliminated from the 1990 World Cup in November 1989 thanks to a defeat by the United States. "If we don't change, and I mean "we" - everyone in U.S. Soccer - then what's the point?"

To win a bidding war with ESPN, Fox agreed to pay $400 million for the English-broadcast rights to the World Cup in 2018 and 2022.

This is the first time since 1986 that the United States has missed out on a trip to the World Cup, so this is a pretty tough pill to swallow.

People can be as angry as they want, but the fact of the matter is that no anger in this world is going to send this under-achieving team to Russian Federation next year.

"The discussion after Brazil [2014] was, 'Can we beat the Colombias and the Belgiums and the Argentinas of the world", Twellman said. In his venting session, Twellman called for wide-spread change throughout the US soccer system.

"This is an utter embarrassment", Twellman said. "What are we doing?" "With the amount of money that is in Major League Soccer and is in this sport, you can't get a draw, a tie, against Trinidad?"

Herculez Gomez says the USA are regressing rather than progressing in terms of player development. "Max, you don't deserve to go to the World Cup, plain and simple".
