Stunned US face major questions after World Cup debacle

The United States of America will not be taking part in next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

A 2-1 loss Tuesday at Trinidad and Tobago combined with triumphs by Honduras and Panama eliminated the usa squad, which had not misssed a World Cup since 1986.

"If this failure does not wake up everyone from U.S Soccer (Federation) to Major League Soccer to "pay to play" (youth soccer), to broadcasters, everything, then we are all insane". He said it was not the fault of Jurgen Klinsmann, head coach from 2011 through 2016, or Bruce Arena who took over from him. We're building a consistent professional league.

But rather than a final goodbye to beloved superstars and a grand welcome to the future of the sport, the American men's soccer machine will have to collect itself, lick its wounds, and figure out a way to recover. "We have players playing overseas of some quality", he added.

The U.S. needed only to tie Trinidad and Tobago, the world's 99th-ranked team, to qualify for its eighth consecutive World Cup.

Following the loss, Gulati did not seem committed to tear everything down. "Despite past successes he has presided over an unmitigated disaster and the federation needs fresh leadership and ideas from top to bottom".

Southwest plans flights to Hawaii beginning in 2018
Southwest Airlines will begin selling tickets to Hawaii next year for service using the carrier's new 175-seat Boeing 737 MAX 8. And with a major carrier adding flights to Hawaii in 2018, this may be a good time to start.

"The blame must be placed squarely at the feet of US Soccer's management, led by Sunil Gulati", Commisso said in a statement.

"But we will take our lumps, learn, dust ourselves off and come back strong having learned painful, but hopefully valuable, lessons in who we are and who we aren't".

Rocco Commisso, the New York Cosmos chairman with an anti-trust lawsuit against US Soccer, joined the chorus as well.

Speaking in his familiar role as an analyst on ESPN, Twellman hammered away at the "utter embarrassment" of a United States team failing to qualify for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. "The World Cup is the greatest sporting event on earth that changes the world for one month every four years, and FOX Sports remains steadfast in our commitment of bringing the games to America for the first time in 2018 and will continue to support the US Soccer Federation as they look ahead to the 2022 World Cup".

Twellman finished his MLS career with 130 goals in 232 games, adding another six goals in 30 games over a seven-year stretch with the U.S. National Team.
