Under-fire Arena addresses US future: 'I'll do whatever is right'

"For us in USSoccer more than a wake-up call".

It's obviously a disaster for Fox, which will have a very hard time recouping its rights fees without any chance of luring the eyeballs of the casual American sports fans who may be less inclined to tune in to see Iceland play Iran. There will be more players developed over the years.

"We let our country down, we let our teammates down, we let our families down, and we let ourselves down", Bedoya said.

"In the nearly 12 years during which Sunil Gulati has been the USSF's president, little or nothing has been done to enhance our prospects", Commisso said in a statement.

The U.S. finished fifth in CONCACAF's Hexagonal table after losing 2-1 to Trinidad and Tobago on the region's final matchday as both Honduras and Panama moved ahead of the Americans in the standings and left the team on the outside looking in at the World Cup for the first time since 1986. "Getting back on track requires fundamental change in the structure and management of the sport in our country, starting with a change in the federation's leadership".

While fans fulminated over the front office, the next national team coach must instigate a ruthless roster purge. Arena's contract was believed to run through next summer, but he said Thursday that, because of the qualifying failure, it might expire this fall. The Americans won't even play a competitive match for almost two years, until the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The best thing U.S. Soccer can do for him and other young talents on the verge of breaking into the senior squad is giving them a qualified manager who puts them in the best possible positions to succeed game-to-game.

A shocked Gulati was measured in his reaction.

"You don't have wholesale changes based on the ball being 2 inches wide or 2 inches in", he said.

All we had to do was at least tie Trinidad &Tobago, an island nation of 1.3 million whose 99th-ranked team in the world had nothing at stake in the outcome. We didn't get the job done.

While every major soccer country invests in youth development to uncover the best and brightest soccer prodigies in every corner of their countries, the US soccer pyramid is still dependent on middle class suburban families who are willing to pay anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 a year in fees and travel costs in search of college scholarships. Major League Soccer launched two years later; cable television and the Internet brought top European clubs to American televisions and later laptops and cell phones.

As you might have heard by now since American soccer Twitter melted down on Tuesday night, that 1-in-27 scenario played out in nightmarish fashion.

The United States men's national team did not miss the World Cup due to a lack of talent.

Vermes has guided Sporting KC to one MLS Cup and three U.S. Open Cup titles and the team has made the playoffs every season since 2011.

"This has been coming for a while".

More immediately, a decision must be made on whether the national team plays exhibitions during the November fixture dates and who will coach.

Arena took over the team past year after Jürgen Klinsmann was sacked following a run of poor results.

It didn't seem to matter that the United States men's national soccer team was playing on some TV channel that was unavailable to many Americans who might have been interested in watching it. An interim coach is a possibility.

"There's nothing wrong with what we're doing", he maintained.

"They are a governing body that runs our national team programs". Nothing has to change.
