The US missed out on qualification for the World Cup for the first time since 1986 when they lost to Trinidad & Tobago on Tuesday night, and Arena said he is unlikely to lead the team in their attempt to reach the 2022 tournament. For the first time since 1986 - when the Soviet Union was still a country - the United States will not participate in the World Cup.
Amid calls for systematic reform and the exit of Gulati, Arena defended the longtime U.S. Soccer president while downplaying the federation's role when it comes to shortcomings in player development.
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. "Why is the president of the federation responsible for the result on Tuesday?" We failed on the day. The Americans won't even play a competitive match for almost two years, until the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup. 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.
By then, Christian Pulisic, at 19 already the top American, should be surrounded with other players on the rise, such as 19-year-old midfielder Weston Mckennie, who has started Schalke's last three games in the German Bundesliga.
While every major soccer country invests in youth development to uncover the best and brightest soccer prodigies in every corner of their countries, the US soccer pyramid is still dependent on middle class suburban families who are willing to pay anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 a year in fees and travel costs in search of college scholarships.
"You don't make wholesale changes on a ball being two inches wide or two inches in". They haven't received almost the same financial investment from U.S. Soccer or comparable media coverage, and they managed to win four Olympic gold medals. After Friday's 4-0 victory over Panama, the US looked certain to continue its record of reaching the World Cup finals-it hasn't missed a tournament since 1986.
Now headed for a quiet summer in 2018, the USSF will have to hunker down and identify a manager who can help nurture the national team's young talent and implement a more dynamic system in the aftermath of one of the biggest blunders in program history.
Club soccer teams price out poor families during the crucial development years. "There's nothing wrong with what we're doing". 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. "Certainly I think as our league continues to grow, it benefits the national team program". To make any kind of insane changes, I think would be foolish. We have some good young players coming up. The highest professional soccer league in the US, Major League Soccer, is no longer considered a joke around the globe. Soccer fans here are used to following professional teams and tournaments overseas, and the connection the sport gives us to the rest of the globe is part of the draw.
