“This is going to hurt for a long time, but I’m so grateful for this team and everyone who supported us throughout the process. A lifelong dream come true to represent my country in a World Cup. We will be back,” said the man named Captain America.

Another person who is very affected by the elimination is Sergio Dest, who was one of Team USA’s best players in Qatar.

“Devastated. We gave everything for our country, but unfortunately we came up short on the night. I’m very proud of the team and how we fought throughout the tournament. “There is so much talent in the group and most of us are still young with plenty of time to develop,” Dest sentenced on social media.

Dest and Pulisic, two of the USA’s emblematic players

Sergio Dest and Christian Pulisic are two of coach Gregg Berhalter‘s most trusted players, and their numbers in Qatar show that they will be two of the players on which he will base his hopes for the next World Cup.

Pulisic played a total of 316 minutes, scoring one goal, and only came off against Iran after suffering an injury that landed him in a Doha hospital. Dest totaled 424 minutes, was cautioned and came off the bench in every game.

Christian Pulisic net worth: What is the fortune and salary of “Captain America”?

Christian Pulisic is an American soccer player that plays for Chelsea FC in the English Premier League and is also one of the United States Men’s National Team most important players, being their leader in offense while wearing the historic #10 jersey for the Stars and Stripes.

Pulisic was born in Hershey, Pennsylvania on September 18, 1998 and has just made his debut in a FIFA World Cup at Qatar 2022 a couple of weeks ago.

His move from Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga to Chelsea FC holds the record for the most expensive transfer involving an American player ever.

Christian Pulisic net worth

Pulisic wants to lead the USMNT past the Round of 16

Despite exiting the USMNT’s last Group Stage match due to suffering an abdominal injury while scoring his team’s winning goal against Iran, Christian Pulisic is confident that he’ll be ready to face the Netherlands this Saturday in the game that kicks-off the Round of 16 at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Don Lemon faces backlash for saying USMNT deserve more money than the Women’s National team

Don Lemon remarked that male athletes make more money than female athletes because men’s sports make more money than women’s sports, which sparked a heated discussion between Lemon and his CNN co-anchors.

Infuriating his co-anchors Kaitlin Collins and Poppy Harlow, Lemon made his remarks during a “CNN This Morning” story on the salary discrepancy between the US men’s and US women’s national soccer teams. They contended that male athletes earn more because the media provides men’s sports a wider platform.

Lemon countered with the claim that because men’s sports are more in demand in our “capitalist system,” male athletes get more money despite his insistence that “I’m not a sexist.”

Harry Enten, a CNN data analyst, was in the process of explaining the wage differences between the two teams when the dispute started.

Lemon stated that the argument about whether women should be paid more was meaningless despite the fact that the US women’s national soccer team has achieved greater success than the men’s team in terms of games won and having won several world championships, something the men’s team has yet to do.

“I know everyone’s gonna hate me, but the men’s team makes more money. If they make more money then they should get more money.” The two female co-anchors tried to interrupt him. “The men’s team makes more money because people are more interested in the men!” he added.

The debate got heated between the hosts

Harlow attributed the declining popularity of women’s sports to “big media companies.” “I have big issue with this, guys, WNBA – same thing’s happening to them. Until big media companies, big tech companies, advertisers invest and put them on their airwaves more and allow people to see it more and gain more fans, then you will push towards more equality,” she said.

“But if they are blocked in so many ways and not invested in as much, they don’t even have a shot,” she added.

Lemon resisted giving in. He declared, “I’m not sexist. I grew up the only boy in a family of all women.” He then said to Harlow “I understand what you’re saying, but not everybody honestly has the same skill, not everybody has the same interest in the sport.”

“I think that women should be paid more, I really do, but if the men -” Collins interrupted him, saying, “You’re right that not everyone has the same skills cause the women are better skilled.”

“Well the women are better skilled against better other women, but if the women played the men, they wouldn’t be winning the way that they win,” Lemon replied. “I’m not even going to get into that argument,” ended a frustrated Harlow.

World Cup 2022: Walker Zimmerman says the USMNT wants to win the World Cup: ‘We are not finished yet’

The United States Men’s National Team is the only CONCACAF nation to advance to the Round of 16, leaving them as the only ones in the region that’ll play in the knockout stage of the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The USMNT is back in this instance eight years later, since they didn’t qualify for the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Gregg Berhalter’s players managed to advance to the last 16 after drawing with England and Wales, while beating Iran by the minimal difference in their final group match.

Walker Zimmerman says the USMNT want to be World Cup champions

United States defender, Walker Zimmerman has said that he thinks that the USMNT isn’t finished yet, adding that the narrative continues as they’re still trying to accomplish their goal of winning the World Cup, something that he believes could inspire a new generation of players.

“I think if we’re able to do that, we’re going to inspire a lot of young players, a lot of young Americans to pick up the sport and, hopefully, make them proud.”

Gregg Berhalter knows that a new tournament starts on Saturday

USMNT’s coach, Gregg Berhalter knows that his team arrives as the underdog to their Round of 16 match against the Netherlands, but knows that’s unlikely to shake his team’s confidence, despite their rivals being better positioned of FIFA’s ranking.

Berhalter knows that advancing from the group stage is a huge accomplishment, but he assured to This Morning, that his team wants to keep going.

“We had two tournaments that we’re looking at: the group stage tournament and the knockout tournament. And now, we’re here in the knockouts, we just want to keep this thing rolling.”

World Cup 2022: Weston McKennie’s sensational gesture with a young USMNT fan in Qatar

United States fans that traveled to the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup to watch the USMNT’s games live, surely had a blast during the match against Iran, in which the Stars and Stripes team managed to secure the win and their spot in the Round of 16.

But a young fan was also wishing to catch the attention of her idol, Weston McKennie, hoping that he could see the sign she held up in the stands.

“#8 McKennie please give me your shirt.”

Weston McKennie gave a young fan his game worn jersey

The USMNT’s communication team spotted the little girl in the stands and the Juventus midfielder greeted her after the match, gifting her his game worn jersey, after what both of them fused in a hug.

Weston McKennie had a good game and helped his team secure their spot in the knockout stage of the World Cup, alongside Tyler Adams and Yunus Musah his taken control of the midfield battles for the United States.

But despite his overall good performance, McKennie missed several opportunities to score prior to Christian Pulisic’s scoreboard opener, something that he’ll surely intend to change for the Netherlands matchup in the Round of 16.

World Cup 2022: US World Cup victory fuels more Iranian unrest: people across Iran chant ‘America!’ and set off fireworks

Could Christian Pulisic‘s goal in the USMNT’s victory and consequent elimination of Iran (1-0) be eventually remembered as another stepping stone in the Iranian people’s revolution against its current regime?

Even though the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps allegedly threatened the National Team’s players and their families after they didn’t sing along to their national anthem during their first WC game, citizens across different regions of the Persian nation have cheered Iran’s downfall in Qatar 2022.

Videos have surfaced online of the unimagineable: people across various cities in Iran openly celebrating the country’s early 2022 World Cup exit after a loss to the United States.

According to videos shared by expat Iranian journalist Farzad Seifikaran, of Radio Zamaneh, many in Iran are openly celebrating Iran’s fall in Qatar 2022 and yelling pro-American chants.

Pro-USA celebrations in Tehran

An entire apartment complex in the Eram neighborhood of Tehran celebrated the loss of the Iranian team against the United States. As lights flicker and people whistle, a woman can even be heard yelling “America! America!”

Fireworks set off in the city of Sanandaj

Another video shows fireworks being set off in the Kurdish city of Sanandaj, in the western region of Iran. The elation of people in the streets is apparent.

Cars block traffic and vuvuzelas sound in Saqqez

In what is likely the most impressive of all the videos shared, in Saqqez (also in the Kurdistan region), cars block traffic and honk, vuvuzelas are sounded, and hundreds of people openly celebrate in the streets.

The memory of Mahsa Amini lives on in Iran

The death of Mahsa Amini on September 16th of 2022 sparked protests never seen in Iran’s recent history. The young woman who died under suspicious circumstances after for not wearing the hijab in accordance with government standards started a massive social protest across the Asian nation.

What is the farthest the US went in the World Cup?

The best participation by the USMNT in a modern era World Cup was in 2002, when the team lead by Landon Donovan defeated Mexico and advanced to quarterfinals.

In 1930, during the first World Cup, the United States earned the third place, but on that ocassion they didn’t have a Group Stage and less teams appeared in the tournament.

What happens if the US wins against the Netherlands?

If the United States defeats the Netherlands this next Saturday in the Round of 16, the team will equal their best result in a World Cup and would confirm that US Soccer’s project is well underway for the 2026 World Cup at home.

Why is Iran calling for the US to be kicked out of the World Cup?

Iran called for the disqualifying of the United States when they failed to use the correct flag for the Islamic Republic of Iran, prior to the game between both countries but their protests didn’t proceed.

Who is the best soccer player in the Netherlands?

Louis Van Gaal came back to coach the Netherlands National Team after they struggled in the recent past, now he has the longest undefeated streak in a World Cup with 10 matches, due to his previous participation being in Brazil 2014, when his team was eliminated in semifinals by Argentina, but the match was decided in a penalty shootout, therefore the official result was a draw.

Their roster isn’t as star studded as in previous ocassions, but among their biggest names appear two FC Barcelona players like Frenkie DeJong and Memphis Depay.

World Cup 2022: Christian Pulisic proved he’s worthy of being Landon Donovan’s heir as the new “Captain America”

Christian Pulisic is the player with the biggest name in the USMNT’s roster, but that has only boosted his leadership in the team as he know’s that somewhat like “Spiderman”, wearing the #10 jersey for the squad, comes with a great responsibility, specially during a World Cup.

Pulisic appeared when his team and country needed him the most, scoring the goal that gave the United States the victory over Iran in the final match of the group stage at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, advancing to the knockout stages of the tournament as the second best team in the group, behind England.

Similarities between Landon Donovan and Christian Pulisic

For a couple of decades, Landon Donovan came to mind whenever someone mentioned the USMNT, and upon his retirement the United States passed through a rough patch, even missing the 2018 World Cup.

While the current times weren’t bright, US Soccer looked towards the future and embarked in a project with the 2026 World Cup in mind, which they are hosting alongside Canada and Mexico.

Christian Pulisic was one of those bright young players that came out of their development system and pointed to be a star, finishing his youth career overseas and becoming an importan player for the biggest clubs in UEFA.

He now wears the #10 jersey in the USMNT and many seem to be pleased that a new “Captain America”, just like Landon Donovan in his time, is now defending the stars and stripes uniform with great skills, but also huge courage and leadership.

Christian Pulisic says he’s ready to play vs Netherlands on Saturday

The heroe for the United States against Iran and one of their most important players, Christian Pulisic was taken to the hospital after he was injured during the USMNT’s last game in the group stage.

Pulisic gave an update and declared himself ready to play Saturday against Netherlands in the Round of 16 at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.

World Cup 2022: USMNT vs. Mexico: Has Team USA ever played elimination games and El Tri not in a World Cup?

The United States qualified for the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup after defeating the Iranian national team 1-0 in their last Group B game, meaning that the team now led by coach Gregg Berhalter has advanced past the first round in the last three major world soccer tournaments they have played (not including their absence at Russia 2018).

Mexico, with seven consecutive World Cups in the Round of 16

However, this is not the most impressive record among CONCACAF teams, as Mexico has so far qualified for the Round of 16 in seven consecutive World Cups and in eight consecutive participations (not including its absence at Italy 1990).

These data suggest that if El Tri, as everything seems to indicate, does not make it to the Round of 16 when they face Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, it will be the first time that the USMNT has reached a World Cup elimination game without Mexico doing so.

Uruguay 1930, when the U.S. overcame Mexico

This information would be true if we do not take into account the first World Cup in history, Uruguay 1930, 92 years ago was the only time this situation occurred, so we remember how that tournament was for both CONCACAF national teams.

Party in Argentina dressing room after win against Mexico

Mexico was placed in Group 1 along with France, Argentina and Chile. El Tri played its first match in the history of the World Cups and lost 4-1 against Les Bleus, later succumbed 3-0 against the Andeans and said goodbye with another 6-3 defeat against the Albiceleste.

For its part, the United States was in Group 4 along with Paraguay and Belgium. The North American team’s debut was against the Europeans, whom they defeated 3-0, the same score with which they defeated the Guaranes.

These results gave the USMTN a pass to the semifinals where they faced Argentina, the South American team won 6-1.

World Cup 2022: Tim Weah: The USMNT hero who received an unforgettable hug from the team’s most famous father

Tim Weah and the USMNT booked their ticket to the Round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar the following day and that did not go unnoticed by George Weah, Timothy’s father and now president of Liberia, who embraced his son in an emotional embrace.

Families of all 26 USMNT players send a heartfelt ‘good luck’ from homeUSMNT

FIFA highlighted George’s embrace with Tim

George Weah can boast that he won the Ballon d’Or in 1995, but he never got to play in a World Cup because his country, Liberia, did not qualify, so he sees his son Tim as the ideal way to achieve that World Cup dream.

After the final whistle blew, the United States defeated Iran 1-0 and while the protagonists of the victory were on their way to the locker room, Tim met his father George and his mother, and the family embraced and the FIFA Twitter account uploaded it.

Tim Weah already made his presence felt as a goal scorer in the Qatar World Cup when the USMNT drew against Wales in his debut as a World Cup player, and there the story of a player who was born on New York soil, but whose father is the legend of Liberia exploded and since then, the personal branding for the current striker has been exhaustive.

Who will be the next opponent for the USMNT and Tim Weah?

Now the U.S. faces the Netherlands, and they need a full Tim Weah to face their most important match in 11 years, as the Americans have not qualified for the Round of 16 since then.
