USA advance!

The Stars and Stripes are on to the Round of 16 to face a fine Netherlands squad. 

This is John Lupo saying so long for now. See you on Saturday!

44' He's back on, but he'll need to be re-evaluated at halftime. If he is concussed, then he should be off immediately.
19:462 months ago

41' The Chelsea star is up, but still being treated. US playing with 10 men for now.
19:442 months ago

Pulisic scores!

38' GOAL! Dest nods into the area and Pulisic taps home. Beiranvand comes out to clear and his knee crashes into Pulisic's head. 

A huge goal in US soccer history, but he is still being treated.

19:362 months ago

More US chances

31' Dest dallies on the edge of the area, but falls as he shoots. Ream then gives away a throw-in close to his own goal. 

Meanwhile, Berhalter is complaining to the officials that Iran are time-wasting.

19:332 months ago

Beiranvand saves

29' Josh Sargent spins to shoot, it deflects off a leg of an Iran defender. The ball lands on the head of Weah eight yards out, but it lacks power and Beiranvand comfortably saves.
19:312 months ago

Pulisic struggling

26' It hasn't been the same electric performance from the USA star man as it was against England and his corner is nowhere near.

19:242 months ago

Deja vu?

19' Plenty of neat build-up play as in the first two matches, but so far, no one on hand to apply the finishing touch for the Americans.
19:212 months ago

Stars and Stripes come close

16' Robinson has been the best US player so far and his cross is just beyond the reach of Tim Weah, who has the only goal of the tournament for Berhalter's side.

Sergino Dest then drives in a cross that Alireza Beiranvand punches away. The Stars and Stripes best chances are coming when play is started out wide.

19:182 months ago

USA keeping up the pressure

13' Robinson has found space down the left with Carter-Vickers in support, as well. Pulisic gives the ball away, but Iran do very little with it, knocking it about.
19:142 months ago

Adams working at both ends

9' Tyler Adams meant for that to be a shot, but it winds up being a decent cross-field pass to Antonee Robinson. The cross is dealt with, but the captain scampers back to shut down an Iran counterattack.

Musah has the clearest chance of either side so far, but lashes over from just outside the area.

19:092 months ago

US on top of the play so far

6' Yunus Musah, on his 20th birthday, wins a throw after good work down the right, but Iran clear. USA have had the better of it, but the Middle Easterners have a good passage of play after shaky defending.
19:052 months ago

Iran throw comes to nothing

3' A set-piece from 40 yards out is dealt with and USA attack with Christian Pulisic taken down by Hossein Hosseini as he tried to get into the penalty area.

Iran vs USA prediction

Iran showed great fighting spirit to stun Wales after going up a man in the closinmg stages of the match, scoring twice and are a compact, solid defensive squad.

However, based on the display put forth by USA against a far superior England side, where the Stars and Stripes ran the game from the midfield, were industrious in attack and used their high press to great effect, they have a big advantage in this one.

Expect drama and tension, but USA should win.

Prediction: Iran 1-2 USA
