  Three reasons why the USMNT will still qualify for Russia Despite the current position, the team’s chances are favorable.Now, in a circumstance not even Ian Darke could have predicted, the USMNT is on the brink of missing their first World Cup since 1986. The team currently sits in 4th place in the Hexagonal standings, one point behind 3rd place Panama, with two games to play. ESPN’s Soccer Power Index only gives the team a 69 percent chance of clinching one of the top three spots.

None more so than former USMNT player and current ESPN soccer analyst Taylor Twellman , who went nuclear on SportsCenter after the game. .@TaylorTwellman apoplectic on ESPN News right now.

The United States men’s national team is not going to the 2018 World Cup after a disastrous 2-1 loss to Trinidad and Tobago, and understandably, the American soccer community is furious. None more so than former USMNT player and current ESPN soccer analyst Taylor Twellman, who went nuclear on SportsCenter after the game.


USMNT coaches and media alike have regularly apologized for the team’s poor results away from home in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying because of poor field conditions. But as Twellman notes, the European teams that American fans see as a measuring stick have to deal with tough conditions too: “Belgium played Bosnia on a cow pasture,” Twellman says, “but we can’t beat Trinidad with water on the field?”

The conditions at Ato Boldon Stadium were not ideal. But the USMNT was up against a group of players that scouts from MLS and Liga MX have deemed not good enough to play in North America’s top leagues. The Americans have much better players than T&T and only needed a draw to qualify. There are no excuses. Twellman is right.

Former FIFA VP called the USMNT’s World Cup failure ‘the happiest day of my life’ .
"I wanted to party."The former CONCACAF president was arrested on corruption charges in 2015 when the U.S. Department of Justice charged 16 FIFA officials as a result of an investigation into the corruption throughout international soccer. Warner, who is from Trinidad and Tobago, spent a night in jail and still faces charges. He famously cited an Onion article in his defense against the United States.
