Gonzalez: Own goal will 'haunt me forever' as USA misses World Cup

The USMNT won’t be participating in the World Cup for the first time since 1986

"They continue to undermine Qatar for 2022, but they wouldn't succeed". He's "devastated" by what he calls "US soccer's Red Wedding", a macabre "Game of Thrones" reference.

FIFA became a stepping stone for nascent American soccer fans getting into the sport for the first time. We didn't get the job done. Both are staying home next year, too.

US Soccer have called a press conference for Friday morning, leading to speculation that Arena or the organization's president, Sunil Gulati, may stand down.

First, though, let's acknowledge the bad luck.

It's only a matter of time before Arena is dismissed. And they all went spectacularly wrong. So you are down two goals, you get a goal early in the second half and there's plenty of time to get a second goal. It was ridiculous. But that's CONCACAF. Although new coach Bruce Arena seemed to put the U.S. back on track, earning two wins and two draws from his first four qualifiers while also claiming the Gold Cup title in July, a 1-2-1 skid to close qualification proved fatal. "It's all part of the exercise". In 2014, ESPN averaged 12.9 million viewers with its coverage of the three U.S. knockout stage matches, of whom nearly one-third were in the adults 18-to-49 demo that advertisers like best.

And it was going to be in Russia!

"They are punching people, kicking people, throwing elbows".

Yes, there are younger players emerging, like 19-year-old midfielder Christian Pulisic. This is where the retooling of the entire U.S. Soccer system comes into play.

Late Tuesday evening, the word "embarrassing" was getting bandied around quite a bit on the Internet.

'If this failure does not wake up everyone from U.S Soccer to Major League Soccer to 'pay to play' [youth soccer], to broadcasters, everything, then we are all insane, ' said Twellman.

Absent that, one of the cooler features of FIFA's career mode is the ability to manage a national team in conjunction with your club team (it's not realistic, but who really cares).

The United States lost to Trinidad and Tobago in Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva on Thursday.

"You can say whatever you want - I'm not the most skillful, not the guy that's going to do stepovers, go one-vs-one".

"We can't beat Trinidad on a field 'that's too wet and too heavy'?" Their performance in this last game, against a last-place team, was beyond awful. With the disappointment of missing the World Cup and a disastrous qualification cycle, the pressure will be on Gulati to make drastic changes or step aside for someone else willing to take on the challenge. That place is never guaranteed, as we now know. "Nightmares, for the rest of their lives, because this is an utter embarrassment", he told Bretos. This is a great opportunity for the U.S. Soccer Federation to realize how off track they've gotten, and hit the reset button. The level of competition in MLS is now high enough to attract big-name players, American and non-American alike, before they reach the twilight of their careers. So, when then USMNT was eliminated from World Cup contention after a dreadful loss to Trinidad and Tobago, few took the defeat harder than The Outlaws. Don't treat us like we're stupid; because we're not. The duo will join fellow U.S. international Graham Zusi in returning to Sporting KC this week as the club pushes for a berth in the MLS Cup Playoffs. Nothing has to change.

U.S. Soccer will also miss its best opportunity to showcase the sport for potential new fans, which could hinder its growth moving forward.
