⚽ Seen the size of the Dutch goalkeeper? How are you expected to get anything past him?
⚽️ I’ll miss the Argentina - Australia and the France - Poland matches because I’m taking my son on a camping (organized) trip we had planned and booked three months ago. They better be boring matches.
May I have smore please?

⚽️ Pulisic may not be having kids in the future but if that’s what it takes for the US to win 🇺🇸

Currently, I get any Twitter/Musk news only if I go to The Verge or Twitter is going great. And I’m trying my best not to.
