Dempsey gives no indication he's itching for any sort of formal send off.

History will likely be very kind to Clint Dempsey's international legacy. If the game against Trinidad & Tobago turns out to be his final appearance for the Stars and Stripes, he'll finish with the third most caps in USMNT history, tied for the most goals and being the only American man to have scored in three World Cups.

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.

Following the U.S. Men's National Team's stunning loss to Trinidad & Tobago and subsequent World Cup elimination, U.S. Soccer president says the road to 2022 starts right now. The hope of 2018 is over, and the U.S. now faces a massive rebuild.

That rebuild will occur from top to bottom.

Bruce Arena: "We failed"

Soccer By Ives at related • 3 views

When Bruce Arena began his stint as U.S. Men's National Team manager in January, he was brought in with one goal in mind. He was not hired to bring in some overarching ideologies or push the game to a new stratosphere. He was hired to navigate World Cup qualifying and book a ticket to Russia.

On Tuesday, that goal came crashing down in Trinidad & Tobago.

Doomsday.

Tuesday night was the worst night in U.S. Men's National Team history. There are no two ways about it. The USMNT failed in every way on Tuesday night in Trinidad & Tobago, and the program has been set back because of it.

It's not just the World Cup, but also the missed opportunity.

The U.S. Men's National Team's World Cup fate will be decided in Trinidad & Tobago on Friday night.

After toppling Panama, 4-0, on Friday, the U.S. can seal a spot in Russia on Friday night with a victory over the Soca Warriors. A draw would also almost certainly be good enough while a loss to last-place T&T would open the door for Panama or Honduras to make a late push up the Hexagonal table.

T&T match presents unique challenge for USMNT defense

Trinidad & Tobago is far from CONCACAF's most dangerous team. A quick glance at the Hexagonal table will tell you that, but that does not mean that the U.S. Men's National Team does not need to remain open and alert to certain situations on Tuesday night.

The U.S. knows that a draw will most likely be good enough to leave T&T with a World Cup ticket in hand, so any sort of clean sheet would be enough to book a spot in Russia.

Who Should the USMNT Start vs. Trinidad & Tobago?

Just one match stands between the U.S. Men's National Team and the 2018 World Cup. A draw will most certainly be good enough but, if we've learned anything from CONCACAF play over the years, it is to expect the unexpected.

The U.S. heads to Trinidad & Tobago knowing a win would officially seal a ticket to Russia while a draw would force Panama and Honduras to combine for a major miracle.

An Omar Gonzalez own goal set the stage for a massively disappointing night for the United States, who failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup following Wednesday's 2-1 loss at Trinidad & Tobago.

Gonzalez's wayward clearance found the back of the net in the 17th minute before a 37th minute Alvin Jones blast made it a two-goal deficit going into halftime.

The USA has four points through four played in the Hex, putting them in fourth place out of six teams ahead of Honduras on goal differential and ahead of Trinidad and Tobago who have earned only three points via a home win over Panama in March.
