At the World Cup in Qatar, an Iranian journalist pointed out that U.S. national team captain Tyler Adams talks about supporting the people of Iran, but mispronounces the country's name.

At the press conference, the journalist also pointed out that Adams represents the United States, where there are many instances of racial discrimination. The athlete had to admit the mistake and apologize.

You just told me how to spell your country's name correctly. I think as long as you see progress, that's the most important thing.

Tyler Adams, quoted by CNN
