The United States ended up sealing their pass to the round of 16 of the World Cup by beating Iran by the slightest difference. However, the run-up to the match was surrounded by innumerable controversies and journalists in search of some extra problem, such as the one that rebuked Tyler Adams, captain of the United States, who, far from being annoyed, knew how to respond elegantly to a complicated question and that It had nothing to do with soccer.

Do you feel comfortable representing a country with so much discrimination against African-American people within its borders and where there was the 鈥楤lack Lives Matter鈥 movement??鈥 It was the question that, far from driving Adams out of his boxes, she gave him good material to answer. 鈥There is discrimination everywhere. One of the things that I have learned living abroad and having to adapt to different cultures is that in the US we continue to progress every day.鈥, the Team USA captain replied in a slow and calm manner.

I grew up in a white family with African American roots, so I was educated in different cultures and it was a simple task for me to assimilate different customs. I know that not everyone has had that advantage and the possibility of doing it is something that requires more time and education.鈥渃ontinued the 23-year-old midfielder who currently plays for Leeds United.

The journalist had corrected the player for mispronouncing the name of Iran, something that was not a source of anger for Adams, on the contrary, he knew how to apologize and also add it to his response. 鈥It鈥檚 very important, like the way you taught me how to pronounce the name of your country. It is a process, and the important thing is that there is such progress鈥渉e added.

After the victory of the United States over Iran, those led by Gregg Berhalter obtained the second position in group B after England and with it their pass to the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup where they will be facing the Netherlands National Team next Saturday December third.
