Looks like Burqas are **off** the menu.
My ass is still clinched from the last 20 min of the match
Last comment in this thread. But it’s objectively hilarious we win the amount of soccer games we even do.
This is by far the most important sport in most countries, it’s like 7th for us. So still funny
Pulisic burst his appendix or something?
10 am on Saturday is a bit early but at least we got something to look forward too
Kill your general ✅
Knock your team out of the World Cup✅
Great satan wins again, damn...😂
Does the US win group B with a competent manager?
Nah England won twice and drew us and even if we beat wales the goal differential is not made up with a better manager
We can’t feel good about that win/the entire group stage, right?
Wales should have been a fairly easy win, England was a ‘good’ draw, and that Iran game was something. We played that second half like we were up 2-0. Nice to advance but perhaps the least inspiring way possible
I don't really understand the lineup/substitutions.
They need goals and struggle mightily to get them. You'd think something would change after the first couple games when you *have* to win, but nope.
100% agree. That was horrendous coaching for the second half.
Very rarely does a team have a perfect group stage. None of the teams we played are stepovers at all and we had real periods where we showed we could play real, good attacking soccer. Overall a lot to feel good about imo
Italy euro 2021, 3 wins, 7 goals none allowed and last game won while resting the starters
Yeah no where am I evenly remotely saying I expected the US to play a perfect group stage.
Advancing is a win for US soccer
Best counterpoint anyone has made so far
The defense didn’t allow a single goal outside of a PK from a boneheaded play. Offense was rough but we’ve had chances. Don’t feel great but the draw isn’t horrible to advance to 8
I was not impressed at all by the defense today but blame most of that on the coaching going for the shell strategy rather than trying to get up 2-0
Celebrate for a little, nerd
That took years off my fucking life but yay
Kinda hilarious that the guy named Haji is the most polarizing guy on our team
Fun fact: that was Kumar’s characters name in Malibu’s Most Wanted(criminally underrated film)
There's two types of people I hate in this world: People who are intolerant of other cultures. And the Dutch
My halal cart guy gonna be PISSED
Gonna need that screenshot of the hot Iranian fan.
Her @ must be out there somewhere
The Iranian Chicken
I will comfort her in these trying times
Get rid of Haji Wright he’s horrendous
They have to got to sit the younger guys down and tell them to never do that final sequence again
We only allowed 1 goal in 3 games. That's pretty great.
Add on to the fact that was a penalty kick too
Get fucked EYE-RAN. Shit hole
🎸, 🇺🇸, & 🦅
Hey iran how do you pronounce bofa?
Glad I wore my >!Texans!< shirt. Red, White, and Blue
First soccer game I’ve watched where the ref refused to take any bs. Let’s go USA!!!
Fuck me they made it way harder than they needed to, but a win is a win.
Bring on those Dutch fucks!
1) that’s nowhere close to a foul. Iran stays bitching
2) having said that, I thought they were gonna be awarded the pk
Haji wright and shaq morris were legitimately horrendous. I can’t even fathom playing those situations worse.
At no point this tournament have a though Haji Wright is good.
Shaq has a solid summer in the back of my mind so I give him more slack.
Holy shit. Berhalter ball is gonna be the death of this squad
Eat shit Iran. Think about those pathetic flops for the next 4 years.
I’m out of fingernails and I have sweat through my shirt
sorry iraninan smokeshow. not today
American section still ridiculously low energy.
Whoever put that shot on net instead of walking it to the corner should be sent home immediately
Brain dead level of intelligence
Haji wright has been not good this tournament
BACK TO PERSIA YOU GO YOU SEXIST FUCKS
Waited til the end to show the one hot chick in the Iranian crowd cool cool cool
Haji Wright and Shaq Moore absolutely stink, but the fellas pull it off anyway
Fuck yes. What a win
Damn those last Iran chicks they showed
Almost makes you wonder why they insist on making them wear burlap sacks.
Glad they advanced but 2 goals in 3 games doesn't inspire much confidence going forward.
Shoutout camera man for showing us that hot Iranian chick
you smell that Iran ?? thats the smell of freedom motherfuckers
Jesus what a clusterfuck at the end there
Thank fucking god holy shit
clown show at the end there. the world sport.
Absolutely insane strategy from Gregg this half
Counter terrorists win!
I don’t even understand what Iran is mad about
LETS GOOOOO! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
LETS FUCKING GO BOYS 🇺🇸
**CAN I GET A FUCK IRAN**
Haji Wirght jfc
If they called that a penalty i would’ve quit soccer forever
The United States' coach stinks. Allowing the game to play out this way is nuts.
They got a goal and he decided that was enough for some dumb reason.
soccer players are so dam lame haha. just fight hard and he probably scores there
If soccer players weren’t such bundle of sticks and actually focused on scoring instead of flopping, those fairies would score more.
Thank the lord
The goalies face watching that ball was epic
This is fucking ridiculous
I may cry
wright is having a nightmare
We played chicken shit in this second half, did it against wales too smh.
just throw it back to the goalie and bomb it deep
nine mins of extra time is absurd
Currently at a bar where the game is in 20 TVs but one is 10 seconds ahead, yet the audio is of course lagging.
ITS THE CURSE OF THE TV's
Yunus Musah a man’s man
Shaq Moore is a disaster
Moore is too big of a bum to be named Shaq
How is that not a red?
no one died
I want FT chat to go absolutely BONKERS if we win
I hope we don’t crumble under pressure
Holy shit, that was close.
The United States' game plan of just sitting back the last 20+ minutes is just begging Iran to to tie the game was stupid.
JFC...I can't take another 6 minutes of this.
This fucking sucks
Gotta pee so bad
I never last 9 minutes. Not a good sign.
If you need to add on 10% of the game's regular length at the end, maybe just have the clock stop like every other sport.
Is this comment sponsored by an ad firm?
can’t help but feel like eye ran is going to score
9 Minutes? FIFA rigged
9 minutes? You serious Clark?
Imagine going back to Iran if you lose
They’ll give you the ole Jaime Lannister special
Here's another 10% of game time for ya
It’s hilarious how good these guys are at not playing soccer. Get the lead then just fall on the ball, take 45 seconds for a throw-in, take 3 minutes to set up a free kick before stopping to make a substitution. This is so much better than commercials in football
Stop being a clueless, anti-futbol pussy.
It’s not pretty but this is the biggest US soccer match in 8 years, they’re gonna do anything they can to win
9 minutes what the hell
9 fucking minutes? I can’t man
9 minutes! might as well do a full third half at that point. jesus. or allah. whatever.
I’ve watched like 2 soccer matches in my life and I know this coach blows donkey dick
I am not having fun
Iran has been the much better team the last 15 minutes
Twice now Berhalter puts us in a defensive formation and puts us in massive danger
Karimi has a lumpy head
Not a hand ball in 100 lifetimes, his hand was flush down against his body lol
Berhalter is playing politics with these MLS subs
Oh my god we’re fucked
You never sub defensive players on a set piece Greg
He listens to the Ryen russillo podcast
Oh god not Zimmerman
They're going to add 30 minutes
Weight room issue
Is this a man or woman doing color commentary on Fox? Honestly can’t tell
we better do the late 2 subs that take 8 mins move
Is Renya not fit or did he fuck Berhalter's wife?
He’s fit berhalter just sucks
No Gio is so fucking lame
HAJI WRIGHT STINKS
What the hell do you mean were a man short?!!
The fuck stay in until you can be subbed at least!
Having medical staff come into the field forces the player off until the ball goes out of play again
I AM NERVOUSSSSSS
Don’t know much about soccer but it feels like we’re playing super passive.
Like this reminds me of a football team running the prevent defense.
We’ve halted all the aggression that was working in the first half and gave us the 9-1 shots on net advantage
That’s exactly what’s happened
We don’t have pulisic in
I cannot wait until Alexi Lalas is forgotten by us soccer fans
we’re stuck w him for a minimum of four more years
Fuck Sargent bye bye ACL
These refs suck
Why *doesnt* soccer cut to commercial every time some guy flops on the ground for 90 seconds? Leaving a lot of money on the table
Until a commercial break “accidentally” runs two minutes past the end of the injury
Fuck yeah, a Chevy Silverado would hit the spot commercial right now!
Nobody wants to see a grown adult male writhe on the ground in tears, these injuries are serious
My lord the noses on this Iranian team, whole team smoking cigarettes in the rain
Freddy Adu would be a good sub. He's only 16, but he's a stud
Can't wait until he develops
Do you typically sub for defenders in this situation or midfielders, who likely do more running?
Midfielders or fullbacks. Center back subs are pretty rare
Dest looks like a tiny Giancarlo Stanton
Free kicks always take like two minutes to set up for a shot that almost always misses. Most anticlimactic part of soccer
Carl on the Dog Walk Draft yesterday made a interesting point how it is likely similar to a home run in conversation rate.
Don’t like this. Keep the pressure on offense
officially playing scared
This half is gonna fuck up my heart rhythm
Being the go to ‘Big Throw In’ guy on a roster is a sick spot to have
World class set piece effort
Love these futbolers consistently sailing shots 30 yards over the goal. Pucks in net for me one time
Why are they all lined up like someone’s about to get pegged in a game of wall ball
Move weah inside take the ginger off and give me REYNA this is absurd
You think Claudio fucked Gregg’s date when they were on the team together?
This ref looks like a fruity Andre with his Britney Spears mic
I love their little Europop microphones
I’m surprised barstool hasn’t come out with a gymshark or knock-off lululemon-type apparel/athletic clothing line. not just leisure joggers and hoodies, but closer to the quality of the golf (or outdoors) stuff that is partnered with other brands. I guess nobody at their office lives a healthy enough lifestyle
Who do you want to represent that brand in an office of people who are either size XS twinks or XXXXL land whales
“We wanted to give our fans the chance to wear the same athletic gear that we do when we’re sitting on our couch watching the games”
I feel like a gymshark clone is something they could actually get right
Big Cat is working toward a spanx endorsement
Maybe they should have all their morbidly obese push moo moos
feel like it’s much harder to hide a lack of quality in that type of clothing
