Win or go home: Where to watch US-Iran World Cup game
DOHA, Qatar (AP) — The task is clear for the United States: beat Iran in a politically charged World Cup match or go home.
A draw or a loss Tuesday would eliminate the Americans.
During unusual pre-match news conferences, captain Tyler Adams was asked to defend the U.S.’s treatment of Black people and chastised for pronouncing the opponent “Eye-ran” instead of “E-ran.”
American coach Gregg Berhalter was questioned about U.S. immigration and Naval policy and apologized for the U.S. Soccer Federation’s decision to strip the emblem of the Islamic Republic from Iran’s flag on social media.
The last time these two teams went head-to-head was at the 1998 World Cup in France. Iran won 2-1 in Lyon, a low point for the U.S. men’s team as Iranians celebrated in Tehran.
