Timothy Weah: Nobody believed in the USMNT before we beat Iran!
Timothy Weah, the forward of the United States men’s national team
said that many people underestimated the team before it was allowed to participate in the World Cup knockouts.
Iran was defeated by USMNT 1-0
Could have been eliminated with no win
Will the Netherlands play next?
WHAT HAPPENED?? Weah won a start against Iran. He said that the doubters in his team were what motivated the players in the high stakes game.
Christian Pulisic scored in the final minute to stop Iranian advances. WHAT THEY SAYED: Weah stated to FOX that
I always say it’s us against the globe." "Because no one believed the U.S. could be good at football. We're only trying to show it all.
BIGGER PICTURE Weah and Co. could be fuelled by the fact that the Netherlands is not in favor of The Stars and Stripes.
The USMNT will play the Netherlands in round 16 on April 16. This will be their sixth meeting all-time, but their first match in a competitive match.
There is much debate over who the USMNT's best attacking trio is, but manager Gregg Berhalter's recent lineups suggest that Weah will start against the Netherlands.
