With a 1-0 victory over Iran and a spot in the World Cup's knockout rounds secured, Christian Pulisic has once again emerged as the USA's greatest player.


Both teams were aware that qualification was on the line, therefore the game was tense. However, the USMNT took the lead when Pulisic headed in a feed from Sergino Dest. Iran lacked ambition and made few attempts to enter the USA zone in the first half.


Iran pressed in the second half, but the USA's defense stayed firm, allowing them to score three points while also shocking their opponents.In this article, Mirror Football discusses the key talking points from the USA's final group game before they take on the Netherlands in the round of 16.

Berhalter's wager succeeds

Giovani Reyna and Brenden Aaronson have both been left out of the starting lineup once more, shocking USMNT supporters, but head coach Gregg Berhalter decided to go with the same starting lineup from their first game. Walker Zimmerman was the lone player left out of Berhalter's starting lineup for the 1-1 tie with Wales.
