So much for making the USA great again…
A shocking 2-1 loss to Trinidad and Tobago in Tuesday night’s last qualifying match, combined with wins by Honduras and Panama, eliminated the U.S. from World Cup contention.
An Omar Gonzalez own goal in the 17th minute and Alvin Jones goal in the 37th gave Trinidad and Tobago their two scores. Christian Pulisic got the United States back within one goal in the 47th minute, but Bruce Arena’s team tried and failed time and again to knot the match up over the final 48 minutes (including extra time).

This is the first time since 1986 that the United States failed to qualify for a World Cup. Sad day for USA soccer… At least everyone can stop pretending they like soccer again
