AL WAKRAH, Qatar – USA male national team star Christian Pulisic suffered a pelvic injury and was taken to a local hospital for a scan after his thrilling goal lifted USMNT to win 1-0 Iran in a win-or-go game on Tuesday night. The US team announced Pulisic as “what day”.

“He was taken to the hospital as a precaution,” USA coach Gregg Berhalter said later. “He felt a little dizzy. It was a blow to the stomach.”

Pulisic scored the decisive goal to help the US win tickets to the round of 16. 38 minutes, Weston McKennie Kick the ball into the box that the right-back Sergiño Dest header for Pulisic, who shot the ball wide of the post to score with his right foot.

Pulisic collides with Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand and lay on the ground for a few seconds instead of immediately celebrating his first goal at a World Cup. His US teammates quickly signaled to the team coaching staff to take care of him.

Within minutes, Pulisic couldn’t stand up straight and needed his trainer to help him walk. While on the sidelines, he tried jogging, then clung to his trainer again for support. In the end, he grabbed a water bottle and ran to midfield to get back into the game to end the first half.

Pulisic was clearly in pain when he returned to the field, wincing and resting his hands on his knees, hunched over.

The winger did not return to the field in the second half and was substituted for Brenden Aaronson. Berhalter said that Pulisic didn’t play in the second half “due to injury”, but the team had a video chat with him after the win.

As the second team in Group B, the US will face Netherlands on Saturday (10 a.m. ET on FOX and the FOX Sports app) in the knockout round.
