First report from November 21:
Munich – If the USA plays Wales, then this will be the second game in Group B at the World Cup 2022. By midday England had clearly defeated Iran. In this game there was a political statement because the players from the Iran refrained from singing the anthem.
The US boys also have a lot of political implications before the start. But more for motivational reasons. It’s an important game for both nations in an exciting group (Schedule for the 2022 World Cup).

Gregg Berhalter, the team’s coach, looked at his smartphone and announced “Showtime.” “Are you ready?” the trainer asked the group. “It says POTUS,” he said, looking at the incoming call. And POTUS stands for: President of the United States.
So US President Joe Biden was on the line. “Coach, bring me, I’m ready to play,” the 80-year-old Biden opened the conversation in a good mood. Berhalter had turned the volume up so everyone could hear it. Which also meant that Biden’s request for action initially caused great amusement among players and coaches.

The whole country will cheer for them. (smk/dpa)
