The United States Men’s National Team faces a win or go home scenario today as it takes on Iran in their final Group B match. A team that struggles to find the back of the net must break down what will surely be a stout Iran defense holding on for dear life aiming to earn the second place spot with a draw or better.
Controversies galore have surrounded this match. From former USMNT manager Jurgen Klinsmann getting into a questionable war of words with Iran manager Carlos Queiroz; to U.S. Soccer causing a mini-political meltdown by changing an image on the internet; all the way to Iranian journalists interrogating Gregg Berhalter and Tyler Adams with wild topics in the pre-match press conference. The build-up to this match has been filled with nonsense, distractions, and maybe a little bit of gamesmanship on both sides.
All the talk and noise ends when the two teams take the field and decide who goes on to the Round of 16.
