USA is Exempted by The Netherlands from FIFA World Cup

-

The United States men’s national soccer team’s run at the World Cup came to an abrupt halt Saturday, when The Netherlands knocked them out of the round of 16, by a score of 3-1 in Qatar.

Haji Wright scored America’s only goal in the game. Memphis Depay, Daley blind and Denzel Dumphries all scored goals for the Dutch.

The USMNT thanked its supporters on social media. “What a ride. Thank you for your unwavering support, from a grueling Qualifying journey to the Knockout Round here in Qatar. 

It’s a privilege to represent the United States of America, and we can’t wait to play in front of you all on home soil in 2026. #OnlyForward.”

After the loss, President Biden tweeted some words of encouragement. “Fellas, you made us proud. We get up and keep going. Here’s to a bright future and 2026 back here at home.”

In 2026, North America will host the next world cup between Canada, Mexico and the U.S.
