Politicians and athletes are always a good combination when things are going well. It is more than usual in the USA that a president wants to get a bit of charisma from the success of national sports heroes.
At the nomination conventions of the parties before presidential elections, athletes are regularly on the stage and support the candidate they trust. US President Joe Biden appears close to announcing his candidacy for a second term. That's where football comes in handy!

In the end, however, the American footballers lost 3-1, fighting hard but without the footballing skills to really pose a threat to the Dutch team.
And under the top fan's tweet, there's a discussion about whether it really shouldn't be called football. Countless users tagged a footballer's foot and the ball in photos, arguing that it should be called "football" more than any other sport.
Perhaps the driest tweet comes from Mark Rutte, Prime Minister of the winning team in the Netherlands. "Sorry Joe, football won," he tweeted ("Sorry Joe, football won.")
