Calls abound for Gulati ouster after US World Cup failure

ESPN Soccer Pundit Rips Into USA!

After his epic rant went viral on Tuesday night after the Americans' shocking elimination from the 2018 World Cup, Twellman returned to the ESPN airwaves to rant some more on the morning SportsCenter.

Tuesday's 2-1 defeat by Trinidad and Tobago means the usa will miss the finals for the first time since 1986.

If the U.S. had made next year's finals, Fox would've gotten the chance to broadcast three group-stage games for the United States side, with the possibility of more if the Americans were able to make a run into the knockout round.

Twellman also rejected the notion that the United States had a hard road to qualify in CONCACAF, the North American soccer federation, which is something Arena previously suggested before Tuesday's loss. "Despite past successes he has presided over an unmitigated disaster and the federation needs fresh leadership and ideas from top to bottom". He has the goal-scoring record, the worldwide accolades, the global experience, and more. "But we've got some pieces in place that we think are very good and are coming along".

"The blame must be placed squarely at the feet of US Soccer's management, led by Sunil Gulati", Commisso said in a statement on the Cosmos website.

As we enter the home stretch of the MLS season, we are thankful to all of our supporters for their role in the growth of our league and the sport.

"If this failure does not wake up everyone from U.S Soccer (Federation) to Major League Soccer to "pay to play" (youth soccer), to broadcasters, everything, then we are all insane". "He can't hope to win reelection as president in February now that the Americans have failed at their single most important task".

The loss is devastating to the United States men's soccer program, which had not missed a World Cup since 1986.

"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". "There's enough there. There's no excuses for us to not qualify for the World Cup".

On the domestic front, Major League Soccer, which began in 1996, has produced a stable league for the first time in North America and has grown to 22 teams, many playing in new soccer specific stadiums.

"There's no denying that this is a setback for all of us involved with the game in our country".

'If you want to save United States Soccer forever then we need to fire Bruce Arena right now, ' the petition reads.
