Bryan Nehman On US Soccer Not Going To The World Cup

Twellman sounds off on USA's World Cup elimination 'This is an utter embarrassment'

Bruce Arena's boys lost their crucial qualifier against Trinidad and Tobago last night and their 2-1 slump saw former United States of America global and now a TV pundit Taylor Twellman lay into the entire soccer system in the country. Although the US still would have advanced with help in other matches, Panama earned a 2-1 win over Costa Rica to clinch a World Cup berth in third while Honduras' 3-2 victory against Mexico was enough to secure a playoff date with Australia.

To put that into context, the Trinidadians headed into the match with one win and eight losses from nine matches in the fifth round of CONCACAF qualifiers.

The loss is devastating to the United States men's soccer program, which had not missed a World Cup since 1986. Fox and Telemundo won the rights to the 2018 and 2022 World Cups after bidding about four times as much as the previous contract held by The Walt Disney Co.'s ESPN and Univision. "The most surreal and embarrassing night in USA soccer history".

Following the loss, ESPN soccer analyst Taylor Twellman went on an epic rant blasting U.S. soccer as a whole.

"The gloves should have been off years ago!"

"As a whole, U.S. Soccer is not prepared", Twellman said on ESPN News. "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? You don't deserve to go to the World Cup, plain and simple".

Max Bretos, Herculez Gomez and Shaka Hislop discuss what needs to change within U.S. Soccer after their qualifying failure. "What are we doing?"

Twellman did not stop at blaming U.S. Soccer, saying a lot of the blame is on the shoulders of the players.
