These comic takes laugh off USA soccer sadness


Earlier, Twellman went off on U.S. Soccer's inability to get the men's team ready for this qualification tournament.

In the wake of the USA men's soccer team failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, fans and pundits alike are upset.

"If this failure does not wake up everyone from U.S. soccer to Major League Soccer from Pay-to-Play to broadcasters to everything, then we're all insane", Twellman said. This will be the first World Cup without the USMNT since 1986. He added: "The players have got to be good enough, too". One goal, an equalizer against the weakest opposition in the qualifying group, and the USMNT would have been off to next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"The gloves should have been off years ago!"

American sponsors started treating soccer like a major sport, if not at the level of the NFL, baseball and the NBA, at least as prominent as the NHL, golf and tennis. There were no young goalkeepers considered challengers to Howard and Brad Guzan.

Around 375 job losses are planned for the maritime servicing and support business, with 340 in Portsmouth. Some jobs will also go from the company's cyber intelligence business in London and Guildford.

"The most surreal and embarrassing night in U.S. soccer history".

U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati is also likely on the hot seat, but like Arena, he does not feel major changes are needed. Atlanta United's Tata Martino, a former coach of Argentina and Barcelona, is among the foreigners who could be considered.

"There's nothing wrong with what we're doing", he maintained.

'Certainly, I think if our league [the MLS] continues to grow it benefits the national team program, ' Arena told reporters Tuesday. We have players playing overseas of some quality.
