Netherlands didn't make it either


It's not hard to qualify, at least not out of CONCACAF. That's why we've done it every year since 1986. A tie against Trinidad and Tobago should at the very least be a given, even when we sucked the rest of the time.

That said, the U.S. development system stinks. The pay to play thing has been bashed a lot since last night. It's part of it for sure. See Swoll's talk about how players are taught here, too. There are all sorts of issues that shouldn't be a question with a country our size and resources.
