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.

In the wake of the US men's soccer team failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, fans and pundits alike are upset. Yes, folks, the United States has officially missed out on a trip to the World Cup next year.

In advancing to the round of 16 in three of the past four World Cup tournaments, the USA had found itself targeting a deeper run in soccer's showpiece event - leaving Twellman dumbfounded by Tuesday's developments.

But maybe the best comments came from former national team member and current ESPN analyst Taylor Twellman, who went off on the state of the U.S. Men's National Team.

People can be as angry as they want, but the fact of the matter is that no anger in this world is going to send this under-achieving team to Russian Federation next year.

Max Bretos, Herculez Gomez and Shaka Hislop discuss what needs to change within U.S. Soccer after their qualifying failure.

"As a whole, U.S. Soccer is not prepared", Twellman said on ESPN News. "With the amount of money that is in Major League Soccer and in this sport, you can't get a draw, a tie against Trinidad? Because that should have never happened with the billion dollars-plus that is going into U.S. Soccer and youth development". "What are we doing?"
