Shocking end for US World Cup bid a blow to Fox, sponsors

Taylor Twellman

All the US team needed to do to clinch a World Cup berth was win or tie against Trinidad & Tobago, a small Caribbean nation that was in last place in the six-nation group. Image via Wikipedia CommonsThus the Americans under retread coach Bruce Arena will miss the FIFA World Cup next summer in Russian Federation.

Wearing what appeared to be the exact same suit as he wore when ranting with Max Bretos on ESPN on Tuesday night when he called the USA performance an utter embarrassment, Twellman joined the a.m. SportsCenter to continue what he began the night before.

"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.

"Because the definition of insanity is doing the exact same thing and knowing the results".

While there will still be plenty of interest in Russian Federation 2018, it's no doubt disappointing to both American soccer fans and Fox that the U.S. will not be a part of the competition.

Janesville Mall to close on Thanksgiving Day
Jefferson Mall in Okolona has more than 50 shops and restaurants along with Dillard's JCPenney and Sears as anchor stores. The Hollywood Theaters movie complex typically stays open on Thanksgiving and is expected to again this year, she said.

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. 'We have some good players coming up. We're building a good system in our professional league. While watching the game and playing it are two different products, one can certainly lead to another.

"They didn't buy into the USA winning the World Cup".

Twellman finished his MLS career with 130 goals in 232 games, adding another six goals in 30 games over a seven-year stretch with the U.S. National Team.

"There's an arrogance in our sport that I don't understand", Twellman said, explaining that American arrogance in American football, baseball, basketball and hockey is fine because the US has the best leagues in those sports. 'We'll look at everything, obviously, and all our programs, both the national team and all the development stuff'.
