    Iran 2 Wales 0

    Not the preferred result, a draw would have helped our cause. So, as it stands now, unless we beat England that result is totally irrelevant, we HAVE to beat Iran to advance.

    Current standings:

    England 3 pts +4 GD
    Iran 3 pts -2 GD
    US 1 pt 0 GD
    Wales 1 pt -2 GD

    While a draw vs. England would help the psyche of the US and we fans, it wouldn't affect the overall standings. We have to beat Iran now (unless we beat England ).

    Nice effort by the US today. Needed a bit of that in the second half against Wales Monday. But all is still left to play for on Tuesday.

    Pleased with the performance. England (#5) is a very good side, and we got a result.

    England 4 pts +4 GD
    Iran 3 pts -2 GD
    US 2 pts 0 GD
    Wales 1 pt -2 GD

    US vs. the Persians, for all the marbles. But, while they can draw and advance, we have to win.

    Weston McKennie had two chances and skied both. Pulisic hit the crossbar, ugh! Overall, our midfield played very well. At times we dominated the Lions in the midfield.

    Beat Iran!

    Seeing comments that we were playing for the tie for the final 20 minutes. If you aren’t playing to win, the sport is stupid and pointless.

    If we had played to win at the end, could we have tied Iran and advanced? Just wondering what the strategy is to playing Holtz ball.

    Don't be ridiculous, we did play to win. Stop the stupid talk.

    Don’t get horsey with me. I have admitted before I don’t know soccer. I was just reporting what I heard on radio and saw in a couple of chats. That’s why I said it’s an idiotic sport if you deliberately play for the tie like those comments said.

    Those comments are idiotic and totally false.

    I spelled it out clearly in post #890. And, if Berhalter was playing for a tie, as those asinine comments allege, then please explain his substitutions after the 70th minute...I'll wait.

    Beyond the US-England game...news flash! Iran will probably be "playing for a tie" Tuesday, at least late in the match if the score is tied. A draw advances them to the Round of 16. It would be pure lunacy for them to jeopardize advancing for the sake of winning a game they don't have to win. We have to win Tuesday to advance, they don't.

    Arg's second goal (not by Messi) was a thing of beauty.

    WOW!! This is why you play the games on the field and not in the minds of pundits. Simply amazing. Saving CONCACAF's rep a ton! Now CR gets Germany, who has to deal with Spain later today.
