While the entire program, including USSF president, needs a complete revamp around young phenom Christian Pulisic, it has to be a priority to bring on a new coach and if possible, a big name that has attained success on the international stage whether it be with a national team or with a big club in Europe.

The loss against Trinidad and Tobago was one such setback.

Arena was hired in November after the USMNT suffered defeats in its first two games of the hexagonal under Jurgen Klinsmann. He's "devastated" by what he calls "US soccer's Red Wedding", a macabre "Game of Thrones" reference.

Without question, today is a dark day for American soccer.

The U.S. was just about finished in 2010. Both are staying home next year, too. It was their first missed qualification since 1986. Fans know the decision makers, and they trust them because they've communicated the plan from the beginning.

The former LA Galaxy manager did bemoan the "bizarre" nature in which Trinidad scored - an Omar Gonzalez own goal and a Alvin Jones wonder strike.

The result opened the door for Panama and Honduras to advance towards World Cup qualification from CONCACAF - North and Central America's football confederation.

The truth is, however, that the biggest changes have already started.

One player with a front-row seat to the historic loss was Alejandro Bedoya, the Philadelphia Union midfielder who was in the U.S. team but did not participate in the match.

It is, in a word, tragic. We had our chances. Even if you missed the game, you could watch videos of fans losing their mind in bars across the country and get excited too.

But the energy levels never improved and a sharpness in attack never came. And there are no prizes for fifth place. Soccer in America is not going to spiral into horse racing because of one bad match. But he's also still a teenager, and inconsistent at times.

France won Group A with 23 points, four clear of the Netherlands and Sweden.

Shocked American players slumped on the bench, and Matt Besler sat on the field after the final whistle as Panama's game ended and then Costa Rica's.

But even as we sit out the upcoming World Cup, FIFA still has a part to play.

Vermes is a proven winner in MLS and in the United States.

Two days following the loss, Bedoya shared his candid thoughts about the performance of the team with reporters in Philadelphia.

At least some people are laughing off the most embarrassing night in the United States men's national team history. Atlanta United realized that the sparkle of a star wears off, but winning doesn't. And he did deflect it. just not how he wanted. And that momentum was quite literally built in the wake of the last World Cup.

"Obviously, I have no interest in going on a four-year cycle right now", Arena told the Post. And that has been proven beyond a doubt.

"They are a governing body that runs our national team programs".

But now that era of unbound optimism is over. This is a great opportunity for the U.S. Soccer Federation to realize how off track they've gotten, and hit the reset button.

And it was going to be in Russia!

But a 2-1 loss to Trinidad and Tobago, combined with upset wins by Honduras and Panama, meant the only scenario that could outright eliminate the U.S. became a reality. Román Torres, a defender for the Seattle Sounders in MLS.

"Secondly, it has proven that the time has come to start building for 2022, and begin with the team that has made this country and this region proud", he added.
