WASHINGTON DC – President Joe Biden showed his confidence in the US team’s “bright future” this Saturday despite being knocked out in the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar against the Netherlands (3-1).
Biden wrote on Twitter, “Guys, you have made us proud. We rise and move on.”
“I toast to a bright future and 2026 here at home,” he said in reference to the next World Cup to be held in the US, Canada and Mexico.
The President has been very active in recent weeks in encouraging the national team.
For example, Biden called out the American players ahead of their group stage debut.
“Coach, dress me up because I’m ready to play,” the president began joking.
“I know you’re the ‘underdog’ (the one who has to lose, who isn’t the favorite). But they have some of the best players in the world on their team and they’re representing this country,” Biden added when he said a Trust the other and leave everything on the field.
Sergiño Dest has taken on the nation he was best able to represent and it brought an end to this wonderful generation of Qatar 2022.
In addition, ahead of the Round of 16 game, Biden also shared a video this Saturday in which he simulated Tyler Adams hitting the ball from Qatar at the White House.
“It says ‘soccer’. Come on, USA,” the president said, alluding to the fact that in his country the word “soccer” is reserved for American football.
With goals from Memphis Depay, Daley Blind and Denzel Dumfries, the Netherlands beat the United States, whose lone goal this Saturday came from the signing of Hadji Wright, and will face Argentina in the quarter-finals, which beat Australia on the road. left.
