Twellman was a bit more reserved after having gotten, in his words, about 90 minutes of sleep, but his points were just as poignant, calling out arrogance as the reason the US failed to qualify.
The United States will not compete in the 2018 World Cup after being shockingly eliminated from qualification with an embarrassing 2-1 loss to Trinidad & Tobago.
However an Omar Gonzalez own goal and a superb strike from Alvin Jones meant that Trinidad claimed all three points.
Twellman also rejected the notion that the United States had a hard road to qualify in CONCACAF, the North American soccer federation, which is something Arena previously suggested before Tuesday's loss.
"The gloves should have been off years ago!" Major League Soccer is more committed than ever to building the sport in the USA and Canada. We should have been having real criticism. There were no young goalkeepers considered challengers to Howard and Brad Guzan. "I think it's just kind of been building up", former US defender Marcelo Balboa said Wednesday. "You got five years to sort of build it again".
"The most surreal and embarrassing night in U.S. soccer history". Bruce Arena, brought back when Jurgen Klinsmann was sacked last November after a 0-2 start in the hexagonal, figures to depart later this year or next. An interim coach is a possibility.
"It's hard to see [USMNT] go down like that, but we stand behind them and we're proud of what they're doing, just like the women's team", said UC women's soccer midfielder Katy Couperus.
'Certainly, I think if our league [the MLS] continues to grow it benefits the national team program, ' Arena told reporters Tuesday. Nothing has to change. We have players playing overseas of some quality.
