Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte trolled President Joe Biden on Twitter, poking fun at the U.S. men’s soccer team’s loss to the Netherlands in the World Cup during the first round of the tournament’s knockout stage on Saturday.

In a promotional video posted Saturday morning, Biden wished the U.S. team luck as the players prepared for their match against the Netherlands. Holding a ball in front of the White House, Biden said that “it’s called soccer” before reassuring the team, “You’re going to do it!”

Following America’s 3-1 loss on Saturday, Rutte responded to Biden’s tweet, saying, “Sorry Joe, football won.”


The loss from the United States eliminates the team from the World Cup tournament, with the Netherlands advancing to face Argentina, who defeated Australia in their match on Saturday afternoon. That game will be held on Friday at 2 p.m. EST.

The U.S. men’s team has advanced to this round of the World Cup six other times in history, including 1930, 1934, 1994, 2002, 2010, and 2014. However, it has advanced further only twice.
