World Cup Why England fans booed their players, manager – Christian Pulisic. Christian Pulisic, a winger for Chelsea, claimed that the reason England supporters jeered their team and manager Gareth Southgate during the World Cup match was because the USA was considered the underdog.
In their second group stage match on Friday, both sides played to a scoreless draw, which infuriated the Three Lions supporters.
The US tied Wales 1-1 as England defeated Iran 6-2 in their opening World Cup game.
Although Pulisic has had a difficult season for Chelsea, he has so far shown outstanding displays in Qatar.
After holding Southgate’s team at bay on Friday, Pulisic thinks his team can enter Tuesday’s pivotal Group B match against Iran in a confident frame of mind.
The American told reporters, “I think that was a pretty solid performance for us.”
Opposing supporters don’t want to see that, especially when we are the quote, unquote, underdogs, but I think we competed well against them.
