World Cup 2022: Tom Brady and Christian Pulisic: USMNT hero gets to live the life of the GOAT for a day

Christian Pulisic is the man of the hour not only for the USMNT at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, it’s the rare day when soccer is at the top of every front page of every sports media outlet covering sports in the United States and the image of the Chelsea striker and his goal is the most used.

What does Christian Pulisic have to learn from Tom Brady?

Perhaps then there are things Pulisic, who scored the only goal as the USMNT defeated Iran 1-0 to punch their ticket to the round of 16 at the World Cup, should learn from Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

TB12 remains the most popular and recognized active sports figure in this country, however, these two characters have a closer and more direct relationship as was demonstrated more than a year ago during the celebration of Super Bowl LV.

On that occasion, which occurred on February 7, 2021, Pulisic was still a few months away from being crowned UEFA Champions League champion for the first time, Chelsea defeated Manchester City until May 29 of that year, but that Sunday Brady’s Bucs faced the Kansas City Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium.

Christian Pulisic’s message to Tom Brady

“I’m going to go with Tampa Bay and Tom Brady,” Pulisic told Fox Soccer minutes before kickoff of Super Bowl LV. “Honestly I like Tampa as a team for a few years and I just think Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T – so I just think he’s going to win again.”

The former husband of Brazilian top model Gisele Bndchen ended up winning his seventh Vince Lombardi Trophy that day by defeating the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes by a resounding 31-9 score, while Pulisic and Chelsea defeated Manchester City 1-0 at Estdio do Drago in Porto, Portugal.

Maybe Pulisic’s big goal is what Brady needs to turn his fortunes around after a poor season by his NFL standards, as he currently has a 5-6 record with the Bucs.

World Cup 2022: Tom Brady and Germany with a joint curse: The worst moments in their history?

The fates of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and the German national team seem to be linked ever since the seven-time Super Bowl winner visited Munich a couple of weeks ago to play and win the first NFL regular season game in that European country.

TB12 and the Bucs faced the Cleveland Browns as part of NFL Week 12 at the same time that Germany was playing for its life against the Spanish national team as part of the second day of Group E at Qatar 2022, the results for both were not necessarily the best.

Tom Brady’s undefeated streak comes to an end

The former husband of Brazilian top model Gisele Bündchen snapped an unbeaten streak of 218 career games in which he went into the final two minutes with a lead of seven points or more by falling in overtime by a score of 23-17 to the Browns.

Meanwhile, Germany struggled to a 1-1 draw in the final minutes against Spain to stay alive ahead of the last day of the group stage, but now they must beat Costa Rica, because if they draw or lose they are eliminated.

It is worth remembering that since the 1938 World Cup in France, Germany had not gone without a victory in the first two games of the World Cup and if we take into account the three games they played in Russia 2018, they have only one win in their last five World Cup games after being crowned in Brazil 2014.

Tom Brady and Germany play for their lives next

Despite their 5-6 losing record, Tampa Bay still leads the NFC South, but things continue to get more complicated than ever in their 23-year run.

English striker Gary Lineker once said, “Soccer is an 11 vs. 11 sport where Germany always wins,” perhaps if he had been born in the United States he would say, “Football is an 11 vs. 11 sport where Tom Brady always wins,” and in both cases he would be wrong today.

World Cup 2022: Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Tom Brady: Who will retire as a champion before retiring?

The careers of both Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and Manchester United‘s Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo are living their last moments, of that there is no doubt. With the World Cup just days away, it is prudent to ask ourselves, which is more likely, TB12 retiring with his eighth Super Bowl or CR7 becoming a world champion for the first time in Qatar 2022?

While the current club level of the striker who made his debut for Sporting CP in his native country is clearly worse than that of the former husband of Brazilian top model Gisele Bndchen, it is also true that the Portuguese national team has far more talent than the Bucs have today.

Cristiano Ronaldo denies he’s the reason Tom Brady came out of retirement@PiersUncensored

What are the current situations of Cristiano Ronaldo and Tom Brady?

As for the current situations in both competitions, in both the World Cup and the NFL there are 32 teams, in Qatar 2022, Portugal is Group H favorite with Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea, while the Bucs (5-5) are the lone leaders of the NFC South over the Atlanta Falcons (4-6), Carolina Panthers (3-7) and New Orleans Saints (3-7).

CR7 said Thursday that if he reaches the final with Portugal against Argentina and he scores a hat-trick, while Lionel Messi scores two goals, he would retire, the remoteness of that scenario that was put to him by a journalist at a press conference makes it difficult to think that the striker with more goals in the history of the UEFA Champions League will say goodbye to soccer after this tournament, but it is very likely that it will be his last World Cup.

Meanwhile, after Brady’s divorce with Gisele, it is also likely that this will not be the 45-year-old’s last season in the NFL, he could even compete to reach another Super Bowl with his third franchise.

Who will retire a champion?

The bottom line is that today it seems unlikely that both Cristiano Ronaldo will win a World Cup and Tom Brady will win another Super Bowl, however, both have shown that they know how to go against the odds and beat the odds.

World Cup 2022: Tom Brady World Cup power ranking: Germany and Croatia at the top, Brazil and Costa Rica at the bottom

Tom Brady is the top star in NFL history, however, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t follow other sports, in fact, in his victory with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, he had the best words from the home of Bundesliga’s Bayern and once in the past season break he visited Old Trafford to watch a Cristiano Ronaldo game with Manchester United.

So we at Marca English got to speculate a bit now that the Qatar 2022 World Cup is starting, which would be the GOAT’s favorite national teams or which ones are down on this list.

Clarification for the reader: It is clear to us that your favorite team is the United States, as you have always shown your love for Team USA, the rest is mere speculation.

Favorite Team (Option #1): Germany

Tom Brady met Germany for the first time in his life last weekend, his smile was noticeable with the thrilling win against the Seattle Seahawks in week 10, he surely has a good feeling about the four-time world champion Mannschaft.

Favorite Team (Option #2): Croatia

After a few years of estrangement, last week included love phrases with his former head coach with the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick, who has family roots in this white country that finished as runner-up in the last World Cup in Russia 2018.

Not Favorite Team (Option #1): Brazil

While the divorce with Brazilian top model, Gisele Bündchen, was amicable, it is clear that suffering and sadness has invaded TB12 in the last months of separation with his ex-wife with whom he was married for 13 years. As a couple, the seven-time Super Bowl winner and the former Victoria’s Secret Angel were never able to enjoy together one of the five world championships of the “Scratch du Oro”.

Not Favorite Team (Option #2): Costa Rica

Not only this Central American country is the resting place of his ex-wife, even this Monday Gisele Bündchen was photographed in this place with what is believed to be his new partner, Joaquim Valente, although he has not confirmed it, surely they were not the favorite photographs of the 45-year-old player.

Tom Brady in danger? Bayern Munich injury curse haunts the legendary QB

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has played in dozens of different stadiums throughout his career, however, he has never played where he will this Sunday as his team will have the honor of hosting the Seattle Seahawks in the first NFL regular season game in Germany.

Bayern Munich complete Mane signing

The Bayern Munich curse

The game will take place at the Allianz Arena, home of the most winning team in the history of the Bundesliga and one of the biggest in the world, FC Bayern Munich, however, this fairy tale has a dark side, as in the last two games of this German giant two of its best players have left with worrying injuries.

Alphonso Davies breaks down in tears at Canada’s return to the World Cup

In the first instance, Canadian left back Alphonso Davies had to leave the match against Hertha Berlin due to a fibrillar rupture that initially seemed to cost him his participation in the World Cup in Qatar 2022, however, after undergoing further tests, the Maple Leaf’s best player will be present at the world’s top soccer tournament.

Will Sadio Mane miss the World Cup?

Tom Brady: “That was f***ing awesome”

Unfortunately, it seems that the same fate will not befall one of the world’s star strikers, Sadio Mane, who looks set to miss out on playing for Senegal in Qatar 2022 after having to leave the game against Werder Bremen with a knee tendon problem.

Mane’s absence has not been made official, but it is unlikely that he will see him at the World Cup despite being the man who secured his team’s last-gasp passage to the tournament, which begins on November 20.

Brady is clearly the most famous and important player who will be present at the Allianz Arena this Sunday, but recent events are not necessarily the best news for the seven-time Super Bowl winner.

Proof that Shohei Ohtani is a better athlete than Brady, Jordan, and Ronaldo

Perhaps we spoke a little too soon when we started comparing Shohei Ohtani with Babe Ruth, who is arguably the best player in MLB history. The Japanese phenom keeps proving that his level of comparison is only in par with the best athletes from all sports. It’s not just the pitching and the home runs, Ohtani is Top 5 in more than half of all statistical categories in the game today. And he is Top 10 in virtually all of them.

This level of efficiency can only be compared to other greats in many different sports, you already know the names we are about to mention. What makes Shohei different from the rest is not only his god-given gift to play sports, but also his centuries-old discipline that is embedded in Japanese culture. Ohtani is not interested in making money or being famous, all he cares about is greatness within the sport of baseball. If he wanted, he could be an even better version of the two-way players Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders were.

Can Ohtani he a better athlete than Brady, Jordan or Ronaldo?

Shohei Ohtani shares the discipline with these three legends of all sports, he also shares it with other all-time greats such as Muhammad Ali, Leo Messi, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Pele, Usain Bolt, or Michael Phelps. Ohtani-san also has a similar level of obsession with his own sport, he has baseball for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He even dreams about baseball. But all the other athletes don’t share that levelof humility Shohei learned since he was a little kid.

In the book of ‘Bushido‘ that explains the life philosophy of the Samurai, the word is literally translated to a phrase that means, ‘to serve’. Ohtani fully understands that his gifts were given to him in order to share them with the rest of the world. As such, he made the decision to dedicate his life to entertaining the masses with the smallest payout possible in return.

Baseball players tend to lead a long career in the MLB, Ohtani is only 28 and has at least another decade of skill to offer the world. Inside the ‘Fastball‘ documentary from 2015, legendary pitcher Nolan Ryan was featured as one of the players who retired at the oldest age. He was 46 years old.

Ryan is recorded to have thrown the quickest fastball in MLB history at 108 miles per hour (Shohei’s fastest pitch was 102mph). If Ohtani keeps this discipline as the freak of nature that he is, the sky is the limit for what he can accomplish as a pro athlete. He has the potential to be compared to no other big name when it’s all said and done.
