BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – After the team failed to qualify for 2018 the World Cup finals, United States Coach Bruce Arena has relinquished his role.
US were defeated 2-1 in Trinidad and Tobago Tuesday. The failure by the team to qualify for the world Football tournament is the first since 1986.
Former US defender Alexi Lalas said the failure was a “sad and dark moment”.
Arena bemoaned: “We didn’t get the job done, and I accept responsibility”.
The former Coach left Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy to succeed Jurgen Klinsmann, who was sacked with the US sitting bottom of the six-country qualifying group.
