Now, here’s something you don’t see every day during a World Cup qualifier.

Or any other game, for that matter.

A national team coach getting his picture taken with fans during the match.

That’s what U.S. men’s national team head coach Gregg Berhalter did during an injury break in the 82nd minute of the USA’s 3-0 win over Honduras at Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minn. on Wednesday night.

“These guys are out there freezing their butts off and really just sacrificing to be there to support the United States of America,” Berhalter said during a postgame Zoom media conference. “There was a long break in time. They asked me to get a picture and I said guys, we’ll do it after the game.

“Then during that time, during that long break, I said, ‘Hey, let’s take advantage this now.’ I quickly went over and took a picture of them.”
