"He looks like Thor," responds Martinelli.
"Really? I don't think I see it," Turner says jokingly.
"Yeah look at his hair," says Martinelli.
"You might have seen me on the pitch with him at the World Cup," says Turner, trying to move forward in the conversation.
"This guy is always talking about the World Cup," says Eddie Nketiah, rolling his eyes at the U.S. obsession with their World Cup performance.
