Taylor Twellman Is Really Angry USA Missed The 2018 World Cup

Taylor Twellman Is Really Angry USA Missed The 2018 World Cup

A decrease in interest would also affect FIFA's top World Cup partners, including Visa Inc. and Coca-Cola Co.

However, the veteran coach in his second stint with the U.S. National Team stopped short of offering any changes and even insisted that 'there's nothing wrong with what we're doing'. We're building a consistent professional league. While watching the game and playing it are two different products, one can certainly lead to another. "You don't deserve to go the World Cup" said former USA striker Taylor Twellman, now a television pundit for ESPN.

A former forward at New England Revolution, Twellman played 30 times for the USMNT, including being part of the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup winning team.

"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. "Well, guess what? I see that little red light". Previous coach Jurgen Klinsmann did not have the US on tract to qualify for the World Cup after home losses to Mexico and Costa Rica.

The world's leading sport is becoming increasingly popular in the U.S.

The team's absence will also hurt US stadiums that would have hosted lead-up matches and grassroots soccer investment dollars that would have come from Federation Internationale de Football Association.

He then called for accountability from every level of soccer in the U.S. While he stopped short of saying he has the exact answers, he demanded change. Reports indicating a $10-20 million negative impact for Fox from the USA team's failure to qualify seem correct and represent a negligible amount for the network, said Brian Wieser, an analyst with equity research company Pivotal. "We'll look at everything, obviously, and all our programs, both the national team and all the development stuff", he said.

The failure of the United States men's team to qualify for next year's World Cup will not impact on Fox Sports's plans to televise the tournament, a right for which it paid $200 million, the network said on Wednesday.
