ESPN Analyst Goes Ballistic After U.S. Men’s Soccer Fails to Qualify for World Cup: ‘WHAT ARE WE DOING?!’

On Tuesday night, the U.S. Men’s National Soccer team lost 2-1 to Trinidad and Tobago in a World Cup qualifying match. The loss — along with victories by Honduras and Panama — left the U.S. on the outside looking in of the 2018 World Cup. It’s the first time the team has failed to qualify for the tournament since 1986.

Qualifying should have been a given. This is widely being considered a disaster of epic proportions for American soccer. And shortly after the loss, one former National team player was absolutely livid.

ESPN analyst Taylor Twellman went absolutely ballistic on the squad following the humiliating defeat.

“Every single one of those players?” Twellman said. “Nightmares! For the rest of their lives.”

He added, “This is an utter embarrassment.”

The clip above is lengthy, but worth watching in its entirety. If you feel compelled to skip to the highlight, however, fast-forward to the 3:30 mark for peak Twellman.

“You kidding me?! We can’t beat Trindiad on a field that’s too wet? And too heavy? What are we doing?! WHAT ARE WE DOING?!”
