The United States of America will not be taking part in next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.
A 2-1 defeat to an already eliminated Trinidad and Tobago meant the usa finished an embarrassing fifth out of six teams in their CONCACAF qualifying group.
With questions starting to be asked as to how far the country's non-attendance in Russian Federation will impact on World Cup commercial commitments, Fox Sports - an important FIFA partner through to 2022 - issued a statement saying: "Last night's World Cup qualifying results do not change FOX Sports' passion for the world's biggest sporting event". He said it was not the fault of Jurgen Klinsmann, head coach from 2011 through 2016, or Bruce Arena who took over from him. We're building a good system in our professional league. "Despite past successes he has presided over an unmitigated disaster and the federation needs fresh leadership and ideas from top to bottom". "We have players playing overseas of some quality", he added.
The impact of the U.S's absence will be felt at broadcasters Fox, who take over coverage of the World Cup from ESPN starting with the 2018 tournament and a host of sponsors, such as Nike, who had been hoping for plenty of World Cup exposure. "Certainly, I think if our league continues to grow it benefits the national team program. We should have been having real criticism". "While this is a missed opportunity for soccer in the United States, we remain incredibly bullish on the future of the sport".
Chelsea Fear Kante's Injury Is Far Worse Than First Thought
The midfielder started 35 matches during the Premier League title-winning campaign last season and is vital to this team. Not only that, but their chances of making headway in the Champions League lessens considerably in Kante's absence.
Rocco Commisso, the New York Cosmos chairman with an anti-trust lawsuit against US Soccer, joined the chorus as well. We ask that the next time the players step on the field for their country they individually and collectively play with a renewed sense of urgency as we reinvigorate the fan base and begin to build towards qualification for the 2022 World Cup.
"The US (men's team) has never come close to achieving global prominence as it should, given our country's size, resources and huge pool of athletic talent".
When it happened again on Tuesday, more than 30 years on, the American team did so with Major League Soccer in unprecedented health. So, when then USMNT was eliminated from World Cup contention after a awful loss to Trinidad and Tobago, few took the defeat harder than The Outlaws. "We'll look at everything". He has the goal-scoring record, the worldwide accolades, the global experience, and more.
