Trinidad And Tobago Whopping Of U.S. Soccer Team Puts Management In Disarray

In light of the failure of the United States’ men’s team to qualify for next year’s FIFA World Cup competition in Russia, the U.S. team management is losing its top honcho.

Coach Bruce Arena has decided to call it quits following a 2-1 defeat of his U.S. soccer team in Trinidad and Tobago earlier this week.

This marked the first time since 1986 the U.S. has failed to make it to the biggest soccer event in the world.

“We didn’t get the job done, and I accept responsibility,” said 66-year-old Arena, who took charge for the second time last November.

Arena left Major League Soccer side La Galaxy to succeed the fired Jurgen Klinsmann.

When Arena took over from Klinsmann, the U.S. was sitting at the bottom of the six-country qualifying group.

Arena led the U.S. team to the 2002 World Cup quarter-finals in his first stint as coach.
