After scoring Tuesday, Pulisic came up in clear pain after colliding with the Iran goalkeeper. He completed the first half, but after being evaluated for an abdominal injury at halftime, Pulisic remained in the locker room, unable to finish the Group B game.

Sergio Dest took a pass from Weston McKennie and sent a header in the direction of Pulisic, who was streaking up the center of the pitch toward the net. Putting his body into harm’s way, Pulisic scored but took on a nasty blow in the process.

β€œObviously we’re very thankful that he threw his body there,” McKennie told ESPN. β€œAt the end, it was a heart-drop-sinking moment, but we got it done and we’re excited to still be here.”

U.S. Soccer said Pulisic “has been diagnosed with a pelvic contusion and his status is day to day.”

Painful as it may have been, it was a moment Christian Pulisic had been waiting for his entire life. The Chelsea winger from Hershey, Pa., was extremely emotional when the USA failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, but that setback made Tuesday all the more special.

Netherlands defeated Qatar 2-0 on Tuesday morning to finish atop Group A. England won Group B and will play Senegal in the round of 16.
