Canada faced the United States in the Nations League final, hoping to establish itself as a top team in the region, while the U.S. aimed to maintain its dominance. The U.S. emerged victorious with a 2-0 win, securing their crown. Chris Richards and Folarin Balogun scored their first international goals, both assisted by Gio Reyna.
Let me tell you something about the boys on our team, proudly donning the colors of Red, White, and Blue. They possess a spirit that is precisely what we require, scrappiness. After years of disappointment, we Americans have finally learned how to use our feet, and the truth is told, they’re quite good now. I can’t help but imagine that those indulging in crepes without the luxury of air conditioning might be feeling a tad uneasy witnessing our team USA coming to conquer yet another sport.
This is exactly the grit and scrappiness I am talking about. Instead of rolling over as our country has for the last who knows how long, we stood up and fought back.
Moreover, we find ourselves in the best position, as soccer isn’t exactly a top priority for most Americans. However, if we emerge the 2026 World Cup Champions, it would be truly amazing. We could always revert to the classic question, “How many SEC Championships does Europe have?”
