World Cup fans go wild as Chipotle announce free food whenever the USMNT score in Qatar – Daily Mail
Chipotle is giving away free food for every goal the US Men’s National Team scores during the World Cup.
The 2022 World Cup in Qatar gets underway Sunday with the US in action Monday in its first Group B game against Wales.
If the USMNT reaching the World Cup for the first time in eight years wasn’t enough for fans to get excited about, Chipotle has just provided them with more incentive to get behind the team.

On Thursday, the fast food giant announced that it will give away 5000 free entrees for every goal the US scores during the tournament.
It revealed that once Gregg Berhalter’s team finds the back of the net it will tweet out a special keyword from the Chipotle account, which fans will then text in. The first 5000 participants will receive a text message back with a credit value for one regular entree item.
Soccer – and Chipotle – fans immediately flooded the comments section under the company’s announcement on Twitter.
Many went wild with great belief that Christian Pulisic and Co. were going to bag them free food.
‘Pulisic about to feed the nation figuratively and literally,’ one fan posted to social media.
Another urged ‘Captain America’ to rack up his goal tally as they wrote: ‘Pulisic you better do your thing cause I want free chipotle lmao.’

One fan was extremely optimistic about the team’s chances at the tournament, claiming they were immediately turning their notifications on as they expected the US to make a run to the semifinals.
They also claimed they were therefore expecting free Chipotle for ‘over a month’ but to dash the supporter’s hopes, the tournament is only four weeks long.
Meanwhile, another also showed optimism, albeit limited, as they said: ‘C’mon y’all. We should expect at least one code drop lol.’

However, some USMNT fans didn’t appear to have much faith in their team as they claimed they would be getting ‘zero’ free Chipotle.
In response to the announcement, one fan posted: ‘So what you are saying is we aren’t getting free chipotle?’
Others added, ‘So no free Chipotle then?’, ‘So 0 chipotles, great,’ and, ‘Looks like I’ll starve.’
Other US supporters were more pessimistic, claiming they were going to get ‘zero’ Chipotle
Others took direct hits at the team, claiming Ricardo Pepi’s exclusion from the squad, Jesus Ferreira starting up front and Berhalter’s tactics would prevent the promotion happening.
‘Pepi would have got us free chipotle,’ one fan lamented.
Another questioned if it was a tactical move, as they posted: ‘So is this why Jesus will start? So nobody gets free Chipotle?’
Others claimed team choices and tactical decision would prevent the promotion happening
‘Well with Gregg in charge, this is a pretty safe promotion for Chipotle,’ another added.
Meanwhile, one claimed Chipotle’s executives had watch the USMNT’s September friendlies, in which they lost 2-0 to Japan and drew in a goalless stalemate with Saudi Arabia, and felt it was a safe business bet to green light the promotion.
After its opener against LAFC’s Gareth Bale and Co. the US face old rivals England on November 25 and Iran in the final group stage game on November 29.
