Ex-USMNT Player Kyle Martino: 'Pissed Off' at World Cup Flop, But Back Off the Guys |

EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Team USA soccer player Kyle Martino says the squad’s loss to Trinidad and Tobago is the “worst day in U.S. soccer history” … but tells TMZ Sports the guys need support, not scorn. 

Martino — who played for the USMNT from 2002 to 2006 — says, “Right now, I’m a fan, and I’m pissed off, and I’m upset.”

“I’m pissed that they didn’t put in a performance when it mattered most … I know they’re good enough to win that game. I know those guys, they’re better than they showed on that day.”

“Any pain the fans are feeling right now, the players are feeling 10-times that. It’s not helpful to jump on them and criticize them right now. They know they messed up in a big game.”
