Calls abound for Gulati ouster after US World Cup failure

Calls abound for Gulati ouster after US World Cup failure

So, when then USMNT was eliminated from World Cup contention after a awful loss to Trinidad and Tobago, few took the defeat harder than The Outlaws.

It has been more than 36 hours since the most embarrassing loss in American soccer history, yet nobody has been held accountable for failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. Twellman, now an ESPN analyst, asked in an eight-minute rant that went viral.

Twellman, who made 30 appearances for the United States men's team and scored six goals, could not hold back his anger and disappointment with the players, coaches and everyone involved.

New York Cosmos owner Rocco Commisso, chairman of the lower-level North American Soccer League that has sued the USSF, called for federation President Sunil Gulati to resign along with board members and senior administrators he put in place. The Tim Howard/Clint Dempsey/Michael Bradley era is over, and pretty much any player older than 26 will be past his past his prime when the World Cup in Qatar kicks off in November 2022.

After American soccer's Waterloo, the fallout nearly surely will lead to a new coach and possibly a new USSF head.

"Look at the two goals we conceded: How weird", Arena said.

We won't even be on that stage in Russian Federation next year. Arena previously guided the national team to the quarterfinals in 2002 and to the World Cup in 2006, when the team was eliminated after the group stage. The obvious blame falls on the players, apart from superstar Christian Pulisic, who just did not get the job done.

"I think the biggest loss is to the soccer community", says Louis Robinson, Head Coach for Grand Rapids Football Club.

But in the immediate aftermath of the defeat coach Bruce Arena, who was brought back in November previous year following the firing of German Juergen Klinsmann, rejected the idea that major change was needed.

"You don't make wholesale changes on a ball being two inches wide or two inches in". "We will look at everything, obviously, and all of our programs, both the national team and all the development stuff". "Like here in West Michigan, the kids that watch the usa and get behind them aren't going to be able to do that next year and that's a killer".

The impact of the U.S's absence will be felt at broadcasters Fox, who take over coverage of the World Cup from ESPN starting with the 2018 tournament and a host of sponsors, such as Nike, who had been hoping for plenty of World Cup exposure. With the women's World Cup in France coming up in 2019, there is an opportunity to pursue gender equality and soccer growth at the same time. The U.S. failed to qualify for the 2012 and 2016 men's Olympic soccer tournaments, a generational talent gap evident when a creaky defense repeatedly broke down during qualifying. "What are we doing?"

One was Jurgen Klinsmann, a former German national team star who took the United States to the Round of 16 at the last World Cup in Brazil. "Certainly, I think if our league continues to grow it benefits the national team program". "To make any kind of insane changes would be foolish". We have some good young players coming up. We're building a good system in our professional league. "We have players playing overseas of a certain quality".
