USMNT to Miss World Cup After Loss in Trinidad and Tobago

Quote:
COUVA, Trinidad and Tobago — There was always a chance that a year would come when the United States again failed to qualify for the World Cup, when the hurdles in the nearly two-year slog of regional qualification — the matches on steamy afternoons and muggy nights, the hard tackles and the coin-throwing fans, the lousy fields and the dubious refereeing — all proved too much.

That year is 2017.

Trinidad and Tobago, whose World Cup dreams ended months ago, stunned the United States, 2-1, on Tuesday night. The result, combined with just-as-shocking outcomes in two simultaneous games in Honduras and Panama on the final day of qualifying for the Concacaf region, ushered in the unthinkable: The American men, mainstays of the World Cup for more than a generation, are out of next summer’s tournament in Russia.

Good thing they are starting a USSDA for the girls so they can catch up to our men's program.

Disgraceful is what this is. How much money has been spent in the U.S. on soccer compared to T&T? How can a nation of 1.3 million (i.e. - Dallas) down a country with 320 million? What of the Development Academy? Is it rendered a failure? A true academy would not have players paying to play in that organization. That's called glorified club.
