Soccer 2 the MAX: USMNT Fail to Qualify for the 2018 World Cup
On this somber episode of Soccer 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer, Erik Watkins and Rachael McKriger are joined by Last Word on Soccer writer, and host of the Last Word Soccer Club podcast, Matt Pollard. All four discuss the loss by the USMNT 2-1 to Trinidad & Tobago.
The lethargic squad, the tactics by Bruce Arena, who’s to blame for the USA not making the World Cup. What does it mean for the future of U.S. Soccer? Who should be the next coach? Should this cause a shakeup all the way up to Sunil Gulati? We discuss it all, and much more.
This is going to be a sad nine months leading up to a World Cup without the United States for the first time since 1986.
