- With a 2–0 win over Wales earlier in the day, Iran now boasts three points and sat in a tie with England for first place until the draw. Iran’s big-time victory sets the stage for a dramatic finish for the USMNT, as the two sides will face off Tuesday in a huge match that will ultimately decide their fate.
- Should the USMNT earn a win over Iran, the team would advance to the knockout stage with a total of five points.
- However, if the squad ends a third consecutive match in a draw or loses the match, the U.S. would be eliminated in the group stage for the first time since 2006.
