Omar Gonzalez, defender of the U.S. Men’s National Team, will never forget the role he played in the team’s loss and elimination from the World Cup. Unfortunately, neither will absolutely anyone else.
This loss marks the first time since the beginning of their streak in 1989 that the U.S. team will not be participating in the World Cup, and fans and players alike are shocked and disappointed. The team only had to beat Trinidad and Tobago. All they had to do was beat the team with the lowest record in the regional competition. They fell short of this goal. They could have tied Trinidad and Tobago. They were not even able to do this.
Bearing much of the disappointment is Gonzalez, who stated after the game that he and his team “let down an entire nation today.”
Reactions to the game vary, but if there’s one thing that’s consistent, it’s that there are no U.S. soccer fans celebrating tonight.

I don’t know about you guys, but reading these Tweets has really made me feel better. Maybe we should show them to Gonzalez and the rest of the team. Too soon, do you think?
