The United States won their match against Iran 0-1, a victory synonymous with qualification for the round of 16, where they will face the Netherlands.
It was a historic game. An opposition between two historically opposed countries. Iran faced the United States for a place in the round of 16. Finally, it was the Americans who obtained their ticket for the rest of the competition thanks to a superb goal from Christian Pulisic (0-1).
Tyler Adams’ teammates generally mastered the game, having possession, but above all the clearest chances of the game. Christian Pulisic scored the only goal of the match after a superb three-way action with Sergino Dest as the decisive passer for the Chelsea player’s close range shot (38th, 0-1). The Iranians were more enterprising in the second half, and pushed to equalize, especially in the last moments of the match, but without success. The Americans will play the round of 16 against the Netherlands on Saturday at 4 p.m.
