Ex-LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena in a World Cup of hurt

Sunil Galati Feels Heat as Bruce Arena Fails, US Soccer Misses World Cup

Following a 2-1 loss to Trinidad & Tobago on Tuesday, however, the US will miss out on the 2018 tournament in Russian Federation, leaving questions as to how much intrigue there will be in the country without the local rooting interest.

ESPN soccer pundit and former USA player Taylor Twellman has torn strips off the American team following their shock failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. Victories to Panama and Honduras sealed America's fate.

Twellman was a bit more reserved after having gotten, in his words, about 90 minutes of sleep, but his points were just as poignant, calling out arrogance as the reason the USA failed to qualify.

The broadcasting company reportedly spent between $400 million and $500 million dollars to win the English language TV rights to the 2018 and 2022 World Cups back in 2011.

The U.S. loss "is a blow to Fox Sports' soccer ambitions", Steven Cahall, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, said Wednesday in a note. It's on and I'm going to bring it up right now: The gloves should have been off years ago. A decrease in interest would also affect FIFA's top World Cup partners, including Visa Inc. and Coca-Cola Co. But Arena's return to the post last fall ended in disaster as the United States failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. The plan includes over 350 hours of programming, more games on broadcast television than the last four World Cups combined and a studio setup in Moscow's Red Square.
