“God loves them.” Biden comments on the victory of the US team in its match with Iran

In a festive way, US President Joe Biden told a number of attendees of a conference he held at a semiconductor factory in Michigan that "the US team won" in its football match with Iran.

"God loves them, it's a big game," Biden said.

Biden was informed of the result after his speech ended, insisting on returning to the podium and informing the attendees of the result.

He said he called the coach and players before the game to encourage them.

The American team eliminated its Iranian counterpart from the World Cup qualifiers in Doha after winning a decisive match with a goal to none, scored by striker Christian Polistic in the 38th minute of the match. 

The United States qualified for the round of 16 to meet the Netherlands on December 3, in a match from which the loser will be eliminated from the qualifiers.
