United States to Miss World Cup After Loss in Trinidad and Tobago

United States to Miss World Cup After Loss in Trinidad and Tobago

COUVA, Trinidad and Tobago — There was always a chance that a year would come when the United States again failed to qualify for the World Cup, when the hurdles in the nearly two-year slog of regional qualification — the matches on steamy afternoons and muggy nights, the hard tackles and the coin-throwing fans, the lousy fields and the dubious refereeing — all proved too much.

That year is 2017.

Trinidad and Tobago, whose World Cup dreams ended months ago, stunned the United States, 2-1, on Tuesday night. The result, combined with just-as-shocking outcomes in two simultaneous games in Honduras and Panama on the final day of qualifying for the Concacaf region, ushered in the unthinkable: The American men, mainstays of the World Cup for more than a generation, are out of next summer’s tournament in Russia.

The world game may someday become a US favorite, but that day is for future generations.

Maybe we should’ve sent the U.S. Women’s Team.

They seem to do pretty well.
