Yet another of the many pitfalls of video-assistant refereeing was laid bare in the Portuguese Primeira Liga on Monday night as Boavista fell to a 3-0 defeat against Desportivo Aves.

We're all well aware of the circumstances. Not qualifying for the 2017 World Cup. USMNT coach Bruce Arena resigning. His assistant Dave Sarachan taking over on an interim basis.

It's been nearly one month since U.S. Men's National Team doomsday, and a lot has happened in that month. Bruce Arena has moved on, and a number of the players from that fateful day in Trinidad & Tobago will likely join him. There has been plenty of criticism and calls for reform in the past few weeks, and the reverb from the 2018 World Cup failure will ring out for a long time.

The USMNT is in action later today at Portugal (3:45pm ET - FS1). The pressure on this transitional group of USMNT players may be as much internal as external.
