Couva, Trinidad, October 11 — Twenty-eight years after the United States ended a four-decade World Cup absence with a stunning victory at Trinidad, the Americans’ chances for the 2018 tournament in Russia ended on this island nation off the coast of Venezuela in even more astonishing fashion.

Needing only a tie and confident of victory against the world’s 99th-ranked team, the U.S. was eliminated from World Cup contention Tuesday night with a 2-1 loss to Trinidad and Tobago that ended a run of seven straight American appearances at soccer’s showcase.

“We let down an entire nation today,” said defender Omar Gonzalez, whose 17th-minute own goal attempting to clear a cross started the collapse.

Couva, Trinidad. 11 de octubre – Veintiocho años después de que los Estados Unidos pusieran fin a una ausencia de cuatro décadas en la Copa Mundial con una impresionante victoria en Trinidad, las oportunidades de los estadounidenses para el torneo de 2018 en Rusia terminaron en esta nación isleña de la costa de Venezuela de una manera aún más asombrosa.

Los E.E.U.U. Fueron eliminados de la disputa por la Copa del Mundo el martes por la noche con una derrota de 2-1 ante Trinidad y Tobago, que terminó con una serie de siete partidos consecutivos en el espectáculo del fútbol.

“Abandonamos a toda una nación hoy”, dijo el defensa Omar González, cuyo gol en el minuto 17 que intentó despejar una cruz inició el colapso.
