Christian Pulisic injured after World Cup goal against Iran (Video)
Pulisic curled a cross from Sergiño Dest’s head and flicked it home, but it deflected off Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand into the net.
The American didn’t get up for a few moments as his anger and pain became apparent.
He received treatment for that purpose and continued to be monitored on the side.
The American captain left the game for a few minutes but returned late in the first half.
USA manager Gregg Berhalter then opted to replace Pulisic with Brenden Aaronson to open the second half. Watch what happened when Pulisic scored in the 38th minute to give the Americans a 1-0 lead against Iran.
After 43 minutes, he was unable to continue past half time. Pulisic then replaced Aaronson in the lineup for the second half.
Fox reporter Jenny Taft later reported on the TV show that Pulisic suffered an abdominal injury.
Fox Sports reported on its post-match show that Pulisic was taken to hospital for treatment of the injury.
The United States managed to defeat Iran, 1-0, to advance to the knockout stage.
