The attacker from the United States, Christian Pulisic scored the winning goal for the American team. In addition, in the same play the Chelsea striker was involved in a tough collision with Iranian goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand.
As a result, he himself was taken to the hospital on Tuesday after being substituted and It was from this place where the American crack sent a message of calm and assured that he will be in the duel of the round of 16 next Saturday.
“Don’t worry, I’ll be ready for Saturday.” said the player through social networks, thus calming the concerns of the fans of the stars and stripes, a team that will have to play the round of 16 for the first time since 2014.
The 24-year-old striker, after scoring the goal, remained on the ground for a few minutes before leaving the field and receive the necessary medical attention at the end of the first part. This didn’t help, however, as Brenden Aaronson replaced Pulisic after halftime.
United States coach Gregg Berhalter spoke positively, praising Pulisic’s hard work and toughness throughout the playing time against Wales.
“It is something wonderful when one of your best players is also one of the hardest workers”Berhalter argued. “It certainly is. I can’t say enough positive things about Christian.”
After all the crosses, and after the victory of the Netherlands against Qatar, both teams will collide in what will be the next phase of the World Cup.
