The United States stormed into the round of 16 of the World Cup on Tuesday by beating Iran 1-0 after Christian Pulisic drove the ball home in a Group B showdown shrouded in decades of enmity between the two nations.

Sergino Dest headed the ball into the sprinting trajectory of Pulisic, who swept it into the net to momentarily silence the boisterous Iranian fans in front of him, but crashed into Alireza Beiranvand in the process.

Pulisic returned to his feet after receiving treatment for a few minutes but did not look comfortable and was replaced by Brenden Aaronson at half-time after suffering an abdominal injury, a major blow to the Americans’ knockout stage hopes.

“No update on his status,” United States coach Gregg Berhalter told the BBC. “But it’s a wonderful thing when one of your best players is also one of your hardest working ones. He definitely is. I can’t say enough good things about Christian.”

“In the first half we showed what we can do, football-wise. We had a great first half. In the second half we showed what we could do in terms of determination. The lads grinded, gave every single ounce and we’re unbeaten.” for the next round,” added Berhalter.

The Americans finished two points behind Group B winners England to reach the round of 16 for the fifth time since 1994. Iran finished third on three points, with Wales last on one point.

Who are the names of the stars?

Christian Pulisic is the leading name in this part of the United States. He is the captain of the team, hence the nickname “Captain America”, and was the top scorer of his team during qualifying.

While he may have struggled at Chelsea recently, Pulisic is still the man fans and teammates look to to make a difference for the United States. His national team would like Graham Potter, manager of Chelsea, to give him a little more time to play.

Behind him is a group of promising youngsters who play for some of Europe’s top teams, such as AC Milan full-back Sergino Dest, Juventus’ Weston McKennie and Borussia Dortmund’s attacking midfielder Giovanni Reyna.

Premier League fans will know Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams, both mainstays of the Leeds squad. If Pulisic struggles for form, Adams is ready support.
