Jalen Hurts, the talented quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, has been making significant strides in his eventful offseason. After venturing into the realm of acting with a notable appearance in Teyana Taylor's 'Love Letter To Harlem' commercial, Hurts once again found himself in the spotlight. This time, he took on the important role of announcing the chosen national team members for the highly anticipated 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup.

Amidst an impressive gathering of celebrities such as Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift, John Cena, Shaquille O'Neal, and Mia Hamm, Jalen Hurts stood alongside them in front of the cameras. The announcement video was also introduced by President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.

Expressing his belief in her dedicated efforts to reach this achievement, Hurts encouraged her to shine on the grand stage and wished her the best of luck. His words demonstrated unwavering support for the team and their journey ahead.

 "I know you worked really hard to get there, so go show out and good luck," Hurts said, showing his support for the team.

The Women's National Team coach, Vlatko Andonovski, has finalized the selection of the 23 players who will proudly represent the United States in the upcoming competition held in Australia and New Zealand next month.
