That was an amazing tournament. Obviously still think it's ridiculous Qatar got to host it given all their restrictions and obvious bribes. The games themselves though were awesome and there were a lot of great finishes. Penalty kicks were exciting and there were a lot of games that went down to them.
Lot of upsets and intrigue throughout the group stages as well, and seeing teams like Morocco make a deep run like they did was very cool
I really think 2026 is a huge opportunity for the U.S. to grow the sport around here, since they'll be hosting it alongside Mexico + Canada, and also there's a lot of room for continued growth with the USMNT since many of the players are still young and only entering their primes.
Very excited for 2026. I definitely plan to go to a game or two even if it's a little expensive.
