OT - USA doesn't make World Cup
Pretty stunning turn of events tonight. No World Cup for the USA team for the first time since 1986.

Sorry to get political but anyone think Mexico deliberately lost to make a statement?

Unlikely. I can't imagine they'd be happy to lose to Honduras, plus they looked pretty uninspired until the final 20 minutes or so against T&T themselves. Though I'm sure they didn't put out the good china just because they already had their ticket punched.

Doesn't matter... as a collegiate soccer player... the US should have won their qualifiers... let's not make this into something else

Why blame Mexico? Do you think Costa Rica deliberately lost? Or do you think the USMNT deliberately lost? A lot of scenarios had to occur for the USMNT to miss the World Cup. The stars aligned against them.

I was in shock for about 15 minutes. Then I was angry for another 10 minutes.

Then I realized I have a lot of good things in my life, and a lot of accomplishments that I can get done for the next year. At that point it stopped hurting, and I just sorta moved on...

Perspective is everything.

The USA wasn't gonna do anything in the World Cup anyway. Crying over spilled milk here.

I'm not blaming Mexico (or Costa Rica). The bottom line is the USA team only had to tie a Trinidad & Tobago team that was 1-8 in the previous 9 matches of the tournament to advance. I guess we'll qualify in 2026 most likely since we'll be a host nation (and maybe the tournament itself will have 16 more qualifying spots). It's pretty stunning how bad we are in men's soccer. Iceland qualifies out of Europe and their total population is less than 500,000.

Maybe they just didn't want to go to Russia.
