Even the most diehard (strategic pun? not intended) fans and players of anything realize that a game or sport isn't worth an actual life. Of course I would not play, or let my players play, if their lives were on the line.
I'm pretty sure FIFA would do something about it way before KJI has a say, anyway.
Well, we are talking about the US soccer team, though. Of course we'd come to expect they'd lose in an international setting anyway, unfortunately.
