Bruce Arena resigns as U.S national team manager.

Bruce Arena has resigned as the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team head coach following his country’s ignominious failure to qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.After a 2-1 defeat at the hands of 99th-ranked Trinidad & Tobago, coupled with Panama’s victory over Costa Rica,eliminated the States from qualifying earlier this week without even the escape hatch of a playoff.This ends Arena’s second stint as head coach of the USMNT, which began in November when Jurgen Klinsmann was fired in November.He confirmed the news in a statement released by US Soccer on Friday. Part of the statement read: ‘No excuses. We didn’t get the job done, and I accept responsibility.‘This certainly is a major setback for the senior men’s national team program, and questions rightly should be asked about how we can improve. ‘No doubt this process already has started and will continue so that US Soccer can progress.’
