In case you missed it this week, The U.S. men's soccer team took on El Salvador in Tennessee. At stake: a chance to qualify for the summer Olympics in London. Having already lost to Canada, the U.S. needed a win, or else no Olympics.

With just seconds to go in stoppage time, they were ahead 3 to 2, but then El Salvador's Jaime Alas gathered a pass on the left side and fired toward the U.S. goal and made it.

Goal! It's the same word in Spanish, and it means the U.S. men's soccer team will not be going to the Olympics. Only A Game's Bill Littlefield joins us to talk about the week in sports.
