FIFA World Cup 2022: Christian Full Sick kicks the ball, scoring a goal. The gold keeper jumped up. It sent the American star to the hospital and the United States to FIFA’s second World Cup 2022. An hour later he contacted colleagues through FaceTime to join the celebrations. Pulisic’s goal came in the 38th minute.
And the United States was advancing to the knockout stage of the World Cup. Iran was beaten 1-0 on Tuesday, November 29 in a politically charged rematch. “Every single player is ready to put his body on the line to make sure this team is successful,” United States midfielder Weston McKenney said.
The Americans finished second in Group B with five points. Two points behind England. And they play the Netherlands on Saturday with a chance to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2002. “Whenever I say it’s us against the world,” said forward Tim Weah.
“No one believed the US could play good football.” “I sent him a text and checked on him and he said, ‘I’ll be ready on Saturday,'” McKenney said. US coach Greg Berhalter said Pulisic appeared dizzy after the collision.

Saeed Ejatolahi fired an open shot high and wide in the 70th and Morteza Pourliganzi’s diving header went wide in the third minute of nine minutes of stoppage time.

A crowd of 42,127 horn-and-drum-stomping Iranian fans filled the lower bowl behind one goal at Al Tumama Stadium and the other end and behind the American bench.
The red-white-and-blue were much louder than the US supporters. The US outscored Iran 9-0 in the first half, but Pulisic didn’t break until the big moment, with a growing and increasingly demanding fan base back home.
