U.S. English-language viewership records are broken by the USMNT's tie
with England in the 2022 World Cup.
With their World Cup draw against England on Friday, the U.S. men's team broke a previous viewing record.
According to Fox's announcement on Saturday night, the game in Qatar, which was the second of their three group stage matches,
attracted 15,377,000 English-language viewers in the US. It also reached a peak of over 19.6 million.
This is an increase of nearly 6% from the previous record of 14.51 million viewers for the World Cup final between Italy and Brazil in 1994.
Though many viewed the USMNT's draw as a successful performance given their opponents, it left many inside the team incredibly angry.
On Tuesday, the Americans will play Iran in a game that must be won to finish Group B play.
The USMNT's time in Qatar will come to an end if they lose there; a win there would advance them to the knockout phase.
Fox also set a second record over the Thanksgiving holiday. The Dallas Cowboys' victory over the New York Giants on
Thursday attracted 42 million viewers, making it the most viewed football game on any network during the regular season.
