Christian Pulisic Suffers Injury Following World Cup Goal Against Iran

Christian Pulisic scored the only goal for the United States men’s national team against Iran on Tuesday, but he got hurt in the process.

Pulisic ran to Sergio De St.’s headed cross and tapped it in, but he ran into Iran’s goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand and hurt himself. The American writhed around in pain for a while before he got up. He was treated in the goal, and then he was checked out more on the sidelines.

The American captain left the game for a few minutes but came back for the end of the first half. The U.S. manager, Gregg Berhalter, then decided to start the second half with Brenden Aaronson instead of Pulisic.

Here’s a closer look at what happened during the 38th minute, when Pulisic scored the goal that put the U.S. ahead 1-0 over Iran.

He returned to the game in the 43rd minute, but he couldn’t play after halftime.

Then, Aaronson took Pulisic’s place in the lineup for the second half. Jenny Taft, a reporter for Fox, said later on the show that Pulisic had hurt his stomach. Fox Sports said in its coverage of the game’s end that Pulisic was taken to a hospital to get his injury treated.

The U.S. won 1-0 over Iran and moved on to the 16th round.
