In case you were wondering, Zach and Julie Ertz are still one of the most compelling athlete celebrity couples out there.
The Philadelphia Eagles tight end may have watched the United State’s opening game of the 2019 Women’s World Cup from his home on Tuesday, but that will stand as the only game he is not cheering on his wife in person.
Ertz is now in Paris supporting Julie and took to his Instagram story to flaunt his love for the USWNT defender and midfielder.

What makes Zach’s surprise appearance in Paris all the more special is that Julie scored a thumping header midway through the first half of the United States’ clash against Chile to give the Stars and Stripes a 2-0 lead.
The All-Pro tight end’s teammates were in meetings earlier this week after their first practice of mandatory minicamp, after which head coach Doug Pederson sent him home so that he could watch his wife compete to repeat as a World Cup Champion.

Too. Much. Power.
The keeper had no chance.
The only thing missing here is Zach’s celebration. Again, we dare you to find a more compelling couple in the world of sports.
