A tweet from 2010 on the platform formerly known as Twitter, now called X, from the NFL star resurfaced and USMNT fan have stunningly linked it to a performance from the team in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
In the message, Kelce writes ‘USA is pissing me off!!!!!’ and now, it’s been realized that on the day and time of the tweet – July 18, 2010 at 9:44 am CT – the USMNT was playing Slovenia in a group stage match of the tournament.

The tight-end for the Chiefs could also play a major role in recruiting talent to the city’s MLS franchise Sporting KC
