    Christian Pulisic should be healthy for the US national soccer team's do-or-die match with the Netherlands on Saturday, says captain Tyler Adams, who is admittedly relieved after beating Iran in the Group B finale to advance to the World Cup's knockout stage in Doha. 'A huge relief,' Adams told Good Morning America on Wednesday from Qatar. 'I think for us it was our goal coming into the World Cup to get out of the group but now anything can happen.' The US advanced by virtue of Tuesday's 1-0 win, thanks to a late first-half goal by Pulisic, who suffered a bruised abdomen while colliding with Iran's goalkeeper on the play and was subbed out by coach Gregg Berhalter at halftime. Pulisic was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but responded to the victory on social media, writing that he will 'be ready Saturday' for the round-of-16 match with the Netherlands. Adams echoed the good news with GMA on Wednesday. 'He's doing alright,' Adams said. 'He's in great spirits feeling a lot better now but what a big player for...

    THERE'S nothing more exciting than seeing your football team go through on goal - until the assistant referee raises their delayed flag for offside. Argentina was on the bitter end of this in their shocking 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia. 2Messi saw his expertly taken goal denied for offsideCredit: Getty But it has been something that referees have been instructed to do since the 2020/21 campaign. Find out why below... Why do assistant referees delay raising their flag for offside? Referees were told at the beginning of the 2020/21 season that they must keep their flags down during an immediate goal-scoring opportunity even if they think it is offside. And they must only raise their flag once the passage of play has come to an end. However, if a goal is scored and the assistant referee opts to call for offside, the incident will then be reviewed by VAR. VAR will then confirm or rule against the decision depending on what is shown on the monitor. When has this happened at the World Cup? Footballing legend Lionel Messi fell victim...

    Soccer fans bore witness to the first bad call of the World Cup 2022, and are calling out FIFA for rigging the event based on how horribly Ecuador was screwed over.  Has the World Cup actually started if we haven’t seen a bad call that makes everyone on Earth question FIFA? As though it was part of the opening ceremony, the World Cup started on Sunday in Qatar with a questionable no-goal call against Ecuador in the first minutes of its match against the host country’s side. FIFA literally couldn’t wait more than three minutes to wave off a goal and create controversy, while at the same time sending a loud message to soccer fans across the globe about how the World Cup is going to go. Ecuador was the first country to get on the board at the World Cup with a rather spectacular goal — or so it seemed. Here’s the goal, which at first glance looks like it’s good but we’ve since been conditioned by a number of different factors to not take such a thing at...

    MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) — Sophia Smith scored twice in the opening minutes and the U.S. women’s national team edged closer to a spot in the 2023 World Cup with a 5-0 victory over Jamaica on Thursday in the CONCACAF W Championship.

    WORLD CUP holders France were left stunned at the Stade de France - losing to plucky Denmark 2-1 in the Nations League. Supersub Andreas Cornelius bagged a brace to shock the hosts - who despite bossing possession - failed to make it count against the spirited visitors. 3France’s forward Karim Benzema celebrates after giving Les Bleus the leadCredit: AFP After a slow start, Les Bleus threatened with Karim Benzema - who saw a shot blocked. Kylian Mbappe then fed Benzema who slotted home, but the goal was correctly ruled out for offside following a VAR call. The French dominated possession in the early stages - bossing 62 per cent of the ball in the opening 25 minutes - but found Denmark stubborn opposition. And when Mbappe did find a way through on 31 minutes, he was thwarted by Kasper Schmeichel who quickly came out to save.
