USMNT's Tim Ream want to play for at least another five years

Tim Ream has stated to the Goal that, despite being 35 years old, he has no plans to retire from his football career anytime soon.

Tim Ream spoke to reporters after the U.S. men's national team's run through the 2022 World Cup ended, and shared his thoughts on the experience. He talked about how he had previously doubted whether he would ever have the chance to play in a World Cup. Despite that, Ream played a crucial role for the USMNT in Qatar. While he acknowledged that it could have been the pinnacle of his career, he also stated that he has no plans to retire anytime soon.

In fact, he is playing better than ever, with his impressive World Cup form carrying over to


's Premier League campaign. He was recently with the USMNT for their first games of the 2023 cycle, indicating that there are still more chapters to be written in his football journey.

"You just never know,"



"Obviously, after the Netherlands game, you just don't know what is coming. I've maintained that I'm firmly just in that moment and, in that moment, you don't know what is or what could be."

"What could be" is a key part of that because, on current form, there's a pretty good chance that Ream could still be the USMNT's starting centerback for some time. There's a Gold Cup this summer, a Copa America next and then, hey, the World Cup will be here before you know it.

Since the World Cup, Ream has been a consistent member of the Fulham team in the Premier League. After going back and forth between the Premier League and the Championship in recent seasons, both Ream and Fulham are now a stable presence, with the team currently in ninth place in the Premier League.

Ream intends to stay at Fulham for the foreseeable future and is far from retiring, despite his thoughts after the World Cup.

"I have things I still want to accomplish over in England,"

he said.

"I have no plans to come back [to MLS]. I'm going to continue to push myself and play at the highest level that I possibly can because that's kind of who I am and what I want to do.

"I want to keep keep testing myself. I want to keep pushing myself until I can't anymore. I've maintained that if at all possible, I'll retire playing over there. It's something that that I still have a hunger for."
