Unfortunately for Donald Trump, Mike Pence and Sarah Sanders, the United States was unable to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Thankfully, this has spared us endless tweets from the president who would have either praised to high heaven the Stars and Stripes, or bemoaned their failures and called for them all to apologise.
However, the Americans haven't been completely unrepresented at the World Cup.
The infamous Twitter account @USASoccerGuy, which is a very 'God Bless America' look at the sport, complete with lots of inaccuracies, has been dropping moments of magic since the tournament in Russia began.
They have been absolutely hilarious, so just for a bit of fun and some rest bite from all those last minute goals, here are some of the best from the account.
It all started with the opening game between Russia and Saudi Arabia.
Cristiano Ronaldo's spectacular free-kick against Spain featured a cameo from "Richard De Gere."
He wasn't too impressed with the penalty that France was awarded in their 2-1 win over Australia.
The handy work of Denmark goalkeeper Kasper 'the friendly goaltender' Schmeichel went down a treat.
England - or should we say 'The Three Lines' - along with The HurriKane, made sure everyone in Britain was happy with their win over Tunisia.
There was a touch of Hanson in his analysis of Kylian Mbappe's goal against Peru.
He couldn't quite believe how good Tom Kroos' goal against Sweden was.
He did manage to get their flag spectacularly wrong though.
Friendship prevailed as Argentina remembered how to play football on Tuesday night as they overcame Nigeria to qualify for the 'sweet 16'.
He was also delighted to hear that the USA, Canada and Mexico have been handed the privilege of hosting the 2026 World Cup, and did so by posting an image of the Confederations Cup.
