Shocking end for US World Cup bid a blow to Fox, sponsors

Shocking end for US World Cup bid a blow to Fox, sponsors

When it was all said and done on Tuesday night, Trinidad and Tobago came away with the 2-1 win after Full Time, which means that there will be no trip to Russian Federation next year for this squad. That result, coupled with wins by Panama and Honduras, eliminated the Americans from contention for a spot in the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

That setback ends a streak of seven straight appearances in the World Cup for the US, which last sat out the main event in 1986.

"This is an utter embarrassment", Twellman said. 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.

Max Bretos, Herculez Gomez and Shaka Hislop discuss what needs to change within U.S. Soccer after their qualifying failure. "With the amount of money that is in Major League Soccer and in this sport, you can't get a draw, a tie against Trinidad?"

Taylor Twellman is outraged over the USA's World Cup exit
Unfortunately, things did not improve much under Arena, who has gone 10-2-6 in his second stint with the U.S. While he stopped short of saying he has the exact answers, he demanded change.

"If this failure does not wake up everyone from United States soccer to Major League Soccer from Pay-to-Play to broadcasters to everything, then we're all insane", Twellman said.

The loss is devastating to the USA men's soccer program, which had not missed a World Cup since 1986. And the discussion after Brazil, Max, was 'Can we beat the Colombias and the Belgiums and the Argentinas of the world?' You kidding me?

Twellman did not stop at blaming U.S. Soccer, saying a lot of the blame is on the shoulders of the players. "What are we doing?"
