In one of the biggest upsets of this qualifying cycle, the United States has failed to reach the World Cup for the first time in more than 30 years, and now face major questions over the progress of the sport in the country.The impact of the U.S. absence will be felt at broadcasters Fox, who take over coverage of the World Cup from ESPN starting with the 2018 tournament and a host of sponsors, such as Nike, who had been hoping for plenty of World Cup exposure.On the domestic front, Major League Soccer, which began in 1996, has produced a stable league for the first time in North America and has grown to 22 teams, many playing in new football specific stadiums.
