USA and the future of “football”. Pulisic sacrificed himself, Iranians nearly snatched the lead

Must read

DIRECTLY FROM DOHA | You can think of them as the Nation of American Football, Baseball, or Basketball. That they prefer the show to the game. You will not be far from the truth. However, US representatives are doing everything in Qatar to show the world that they can play football well.

And they are doing great, thanks to a 1-0 victory over Iran, they are in the 1/8 fils with the Netherlands.

They were guided to progress by Christian Pulisic, whose goal was a clear demonstration of how much the wards of coach Gregg Berhalter hunt for him. All they needed was a win.

The biggest star of the team hit the ball into the net and collided with the goalkeeper so that he had to replace him at half-time. The stands suddenly fell silent, it was not a very beautiful collision. The hero became an outsider in minutes.

By the way, a simple one-touch goal from the workshop of the players of Juventus (Weston McKenny, 24), AC Milan (Sergino Dest, 22) and Chelsea (Pulisic, 24) became an advertisement for modern football. The big clubs and age mentioned are a clear sigl of where the Americans are heading.

In Doha, the American team finished in second place with five points, they are still undefeated, so on Saturday they can head to the Dutch with healthy confidence. However, the last match of the group from the United States was not without complications and dry. If only because a draw was enough for Iran thanks to a one-point advantage and a convincing victory for England over Wales.

Loud fans in white shirts chased them to the equalizing throw, dangerous balls flew into the goal, and as time went on, traffic jams increased. However, like former Germany intertiol Bastian Schweinsteiger, who posed for pictures with fans before the match, they did not.

In the end, although the Iranians demanded a pelty, stopper Cameron Carter-Vickers didn’t foul. He played a great match, reigning in the air. The players of Banik Ostrava will surely remember the slender guy well, because in July he played against them in a Celtic shirt as part of the annual match.

The cozy stadium “Al-Tumama”, where forty-two thousand spectators arrived, after the fil whistle thundered: “Ju-es-hey, you-es-hey.” The United States are out of the group for the third time in the last three World Cup matches, and while their team is positioned as the team of the future, whose peak is estimated to come in four years at home, a pleasant choice may matter now.

Iran, on the other hand, will not see an elimition fight even in its sixth World Cup appearance.
