US, Pulisic poised to seal their place in World Cup

US, Pulisic poised to seal their place in World Cup

The Americans needed just 80 seconds to halve the deficit as Pulisic collected the ball beyond the top of the penalty area, took on a defender and pumped a 20-yard effort over Adrian Foncette for his ninth international goal in 20 appearances. Far ahead of the U.S.in CONCACAF qualifying, Mexico finished top of the group and qualified with ease.

"We like to hang our hat on the fact that we outwork teams and we press teams", goalkeeper Tim Howard said.

"A lot of things went wrong tonight", Howard said.

Less than 12 hours after the pivotal match, many changes have already been called for.

"We have some good players coming up", Arena was quoted as saying by American magazine Sports Illustrated. There is one solution, perhaps, to paper over the cracks.

This vision shows exactly what Panama's first ever World Cup qualification means to the country.

Honduras will play Australia in the two-legged intercontinental playoff in November. "So I think we've made great strides in the past four months and [playing in the Gold Cup Final] is a great opportunity for us to make progress". With the US not participating in U21 soccer, which is considered a key step by most developed nations, the Olympic Games gain extra significance for players looking to gain tournament experience.

Shock poured from the United States on Tuesday after the United States failed to get the required point against Trinidad and Tobago to qualify for the World Cup.

Even if FIFA committed $63 million to equipping a stadium in each country with goal-line aids, that is still less than the $72 million spent over the last three years on congresses.

NOV. 15, 2016: Costa Rica routed the visiting United States 4-0, the Americans' first four-goal loss in qualifying since 1980.

"We foolishly brought Trinidad into the game with the own goal", coach Bruce Arena said. Immediate reactions being what they are, this is a simplification of a complex problem, but also not without a large dose of truth.

That may be the biggest challenge facing Arena and his squad.

The U.S. defense, which has taken much of the blame for the team's poor performances, had another sloppy night. Pulisic's experience at that age isn't groundbreaking, it's normal for a talented youngster to start getting some first team experience around 18 in most countries. The U.S. won that match, 1-0.

Both sides leapfrogged USA in the table as they fell to a 2-1 loss in Trinidad.

U.S. men's games in the World Cup had become events. But first, love the game.

In the 88th, Bobby Wood's header from close range was steered wide by Foncette. Wood's 85th-minute goal salvaged a draw that kept the Americans in fourth place, behind Panama but ahead of Honduras on goal difference. With the Americans eliminated from 2018 contention, chances are those broadcasts are significantly less valuable than previously imagined.
