Nehman is a soccer enthusiast and coach and is crushed by the result of Tuesday's game when USMNT lost 2-1 at Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday night in the final match of the hexagonal group stage. Victories to Panama and Honduras sealed America's fate. Yes, folks, the United States has officially missed out on a trip to the World Cup next year.
It's the first time US have failed to qualify for a World Cup since 1986 and the sense of disappointment is overwhelming.
Following the loss, ESPN soccer analyst Taylor Twellman went on an epic rant blasting U.S. soccer as a whole. It's on and I'm going to bring it up right now: The gloves should have been off years ago. And the discussion after Brazil, Max, was 'Can we beat the Colombias and the Belgiums and the Argentinas of the world?' You kidding me?

Herculez Gomez says the US are regressing rather than progressing in terms of player development.
