President Biden sees a “bright future”

Coach Berhalter leaves the future open

8:42 a.m .:

After the end of the round of 16, President Joe Biden also tried to rebuild the deep US selection.

'Boys, you've made us proud.

We get up and move on,” tweeted the US President.

»Here's to a bright future and 2026 here at home.« In four years' time the World Cup will take place in the USA, Canada and Mexico.

The current team, from which many professionals around Christian Pulisic (24) should be at the peak of their careers in four years, is already inspiring.

With top ratings, they got through the group stage at home without losing – and they didn’t stand a chance against the Dutch either.

National coach Gregg Berhalter has left his future open.

"In the next few weeks I'll sit down and think about what's next," said the former Bundesliga professional.

A kiss as thanks

8:17 a.m .:

Holland’s Denzel Dumfries received what was probably the most surprising reward an hour after his outstanding game against the USA.

His football coach Louis van Gaal was asked if he was proud of Dumfries, who assisted twice and scored one in the 3-1 win against USA.

"I'll show you," replied van Gaal, followed by action and kissed his defender.

"I gave him a big kiss on Thursday and now I'm doing it again." You can find an analysis from Doha on the game between the Netherlands and the USA here .

Neymar is back in training – but is he also playing?

7:42 a.m .:

Brazil is worried about Neymar.

Or not?

After the superstar injured his ankle in the first group game against Serbia, it is still unclear whether he will be able to return to the tournament.

Different media reports and a video from the Brazilian federation complete the confusion.

While the British "Sun" and various Brazilian media reported that the 30-year-old not only bruised his ankle, but also damaged ligaments, the Brazilian association published a video that Neymar apparently had no symptoms when warming up with the ball in the group of players as well as during shot training.

The Brazilians, who play South Korea on Monday, have more injury concerns to worry about.

The tournament ended prematurely for Gabriel Jesus and Alex Telles.

The Arsenal striker and Sevilla FC full-back both injured their right knees in the 1-0 draw against Cameroon.

    Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden finally came up.

  • After 20 years, African champions

    Senegal

    are hoping for a place in the World Cup quarter-finals again.
