Taylor Twellman Is Really Angry USA Missed The 2018 World Cup”

Taylor Twellman joins SportsCenter to explain where it all went wrong for the United States in World Cup Qualifying.

After the match, veteran soccer writer Grant Wahl summed up the enormity of the disaster best.

The loss is devastating to the U.S. 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.

People can be as angry as they want, but the fact of the matter is that no anger in this world is going to send this under-achieving team to Russian Federation next year. We should have been having real criticism. We can't beat Trinidad on a field that's too wet and too heavy? In his venting session, Twellman called for wide-spread change throughout the USA soccer system.

The U.S. loss "is a blow to Fox Sports' soccer ambitions", Steven Cahall, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, said Wednesday in a note. "They have not done a good enough job of getting this group ready to play".

"This is an utter embarrassment", Twellman said. "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? Because that should have never happened with the billion dollars-plus that is going into U.S. Soccer and youth development".
