Once every four years, Americans get together and pretend to like soccer as they cheer on the United States men’s soccer team. But unfortunately the US team won’t be in Russia for the World Cup in 2018 after their awful loss last night to Trinidad and Tobago.
The USMNT won’t be part of the World Cup for the first time since 1986, and people are chiming in wondering how this will effect the growth of this game in this country. Well here’s a hint: it will continue to crash and burn because it’s one boring sport — so boring that sometimes a paper airplane is more interesting.
But while US soccer fans may have been mourning, the rest of the internet was laughing at their soccer team. Check out some of the most hilarious responses.

US knocked out of 2018 Russia World Cup. Putin couldn’t fix it for #USMNT, just like he did for Trump

Can’t believe the USMNT didn’t even advertise in Michigan and Wisconsin

Honestly it’s unfair that the US Men’s National soccer team had to play both Trinidad AND Tobago #USMNT

Hey #USMNT, where’d you learn to play soccer? At the toilet store?

Well, better luck next year. Oh wait, never mind.
