USMNT’s Tim Weah Apologizes After Red Card in Copa América Loss to Panama

The U.S. men’s national team suffered a significant setback in their Copa América campaign with a 2-1 loss to Panama, highlighted by a crucial mistake from Tim Weah.

The Juventus winger left the USMNT at a disadvantage by receiving a red card in the 18th minute for striking Panama defender Roderick Miller in the head. This left the team playing with 10 men for the majority of the match.

Criticism poured in for Weah during and after the game. Head coach Gregg Berhalter, facing his own share of scrutiny, described it as a “silly decision” but also criticized the referees’ performance.

USMNT’s Tyler Adams mentioned that Weah apologized to the team after the match. Weah also issued a public apology via his Instagram story:

“Today, I let my team and my country down.

A moment of frustration led to an irreversible consequence, and for that, I am deeply sorry to my teammates, coaches, family, and our fans.

Moving forward, I am committed to learning from this experience, not allowing an opponent to provoke me, and working to regain the trust and respect of my team and supporters.

No matter what I will always fight for my team and my country till the day I’m no longer needed or capable to !! sincerely apologize to everyone. My love for this team goes beyond just football and I’m so sad and angry at myself for putting my brothers through what they went through tonight.”

This match was Weah’s 41st cap with the USMNT, and despite the setback, he remains a key player for the team’s future, playing on the wing opposite Christian Pulisic. The USMNT now faces a must-win match against group favorite Uruguay on Monday at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
