Listen all the dummies who haven’t followed US Soccer as long as I have are “ shocked “ by us not making the WC. Truth be told USA SOCCER peaked in 2002 WC with the besting of Portugal - Beating Mexico and then running Germany off the pitch only to be robbed by the Scottish ass hugh Dallas on the worst hand ball on the line in futbol history... Truth be told this is CONCACAF arriving ... Costa Rica and the like - good for our region. Qualifying had become a joke - like jurgen kilnsman... it was a cake walk - the USA became complacent - using long time team players to eek wins out here and there as needed. Player development got stale - too many decent youth players have forgone playing in the challenging leagues of Europe for the comfort of mls - a shite league in every way shape and form. This was a long long long overdue slap in the face we needed. It happened to England , it happened to the Netherlands this year too - missing the World Cup happens. It’s an accomplishment just getting to the final 32 - something we’ve learned to take for granted , if not lose respect for to be honest. T&T taught us a lesson in humility last night. Be embarrassed by the loss ?, maybe -, but this is a win for the long term.
