Iran vs USA Preview

The match-up between the USA and Iran is a situation of win or go home for both teams. The other match-up between England and Wales is more complicated, but the bottom line is that Wales is probably not going to advance out of the Group Stage, even with a win. They would have to beat England by four goals to advance.

Going into the USA-Iran game and the England-Wales game, the Group B standings are as such:

England: Beat Iran, drew with USA – 4 points
Iran: Beat Wales, lost to England – 3 points
United States: Drew with both Wales and England – 2 points
Wales: Drew with the U.S., lost to Iran – 1 point

For the United States, it is simple – they have to win to advance. A draw or a loss and that is the end of their 2022 World Cup run.

As far as the pre-game press goes, Team USA coach Gregg Berhalter and team captain Tyler Adams were asked some unusual questions at their press conference about U.S. soccer federation posting things to social media that removed the Islamic Republic emblem from Iran’s flag in the posts.

Berhalter and Adams were diplomatic in their answers and said that Team USA is simply trying to focus on the match ahead of them.

“The players and the staff knew nothing about what was being posted,” Berhalter said. “Sometimes things are out of our control. We believe that it’s going to be a match that the result will depend on who puts more effort in, who executes better on the field. And we’re not focused on those outside things. All we can do on our behalf is apologize on behalf of the players and the staff, but it’s not something that we are part of.”

Berhalter said that they had nothing to do with what the U.S. soccer federation put on social media, adding, “For us, our focus is on this match. I don’t want to sound aloof or not caring by saying that, but the guys that worked really hard for the last four years, we have 72 hours between England and Iran, and we really are just focused on how to get past Iran and [how] we can go to this knockout stage of the tournament … our focus is on this match.”

Adams was also asked about discrimination in the United States and he said that discrimination is everywhere. Berhalter added that sports are something that can bring people together.

“There’s discrimination everywhere you go. One thing that I’ve learned, especially from living abroad in the past years, and having to fit in in different cultures and kind of assimilate into different cultures, is that in the US, we’re continuing to make progress every single day. … it’s a process, I think as long as you see progress, that’s the most important thing,” said Adams.

“Sport is something that should bring people together, bring countries together,” Berhalter added. “When you look at the Olympics, to see all those countries competing at the same time, is a wonderful event. The World Cup is very similar, where people come from all around the world. Fans come from all around the world, and you get to compete on the field, as brothers, so sport does have the ability to do that.”
