I'm curious about that Wales-Iran match, not enough to wake up at 4 AM curious (since I have COVID), but I am curious.

Depends on what we do against England. 

A tie would be fantastic. An Iran win would be good, too.

Since England would possibly settle for a draw with Wales, we do NOT want a Wales win. 

England will rest one players Vs Wales, but they are so deep that they could crush Wales if they really pushed for it. (England can also crush us if they push for it, especially using set pieces.)

Iran winning by one goal, but looking awful doing it would give me the most confidence. A draw would be the second best outcome. 

If Iran draws Wales, then they can’t play for a draw vs us. So some might prefer a draw.

Iran is the more dangerous side. They have better skill, appear to have more speed, and look like a team that could beat us.

Iran was committing tons of fouls and rarely being whistled for them in the first 15 minutes. 

I can’t believe that we didn’t beat Wales. 
 

PS- The U.S. could advance with 2 points. I wouldn’t bet on it happening, but it is possible.

Very optimal. All we have to do is beat Iran, they are making Wales goal differential worse and Iran's is already in the shitter from the 4 goal loss to England. Couldnt be going better for the USA.

I would have thought a 0-0 draw was best, followed by 1-0 Iran. Guess we'll see.

Why? Cuz we couldve somehow squeaked through on two points with some weird goal differential BS? LOL. Again, if we beat Iran we will be through, and if we cant beat Iran, we do not deserve to advance. We have been given a dream scenario... beat a middle of the road team to advance to the knockout rounds.

Now a draw against Iran sends the US home most likely.

Loser's mentality. A draw wouldve been highly probable to send us home anyways and required everything to fall correctly. I dont want to advance out of a group on a bunch of ties. Win some fucking games and build some momentum.

Ouch. Bad result for the US.

Going to need to beat Iran now right?

C O R R E C T !

How is this a bad result? This is literally the best result possible

1) We go from possibly advancing with a win or a draw to only being able to advance with a win.

2) W R O N G !!

We were always gonna have to beat Iran and if we cant beat them, we have zero chance in the round of 16 anyways. 

1) W R O N G !!

2) We have had zero chance in the Round of 16 since September 2022.

3) Iran is better than we are. The positives are that:

A) Iran’s #7 picked up a second yellow and will miss the match against us.

B) Iran is likely going to continue to play with their 2nd string keeper.

That’s it.

Were people really hoping we were going to advance without a win? I love going into the 3rd game knowing a win gets us in. Hell, we can afford a 2 goal loss to England at this point.

This.  If it wasn’t in the plans to get 3 points off of someone we shouldn’t have shown up and I’ll take the loss if our team can’t get a win against either Iran or Wales.

We avoided a Wales win which is the only result that really mattered.  We are fortunate to be in a win and advance situation before even kicking a ball on match day 2.

Tim Ream, Sergiño Dest, Weston McKennie, and Kellyn Acosta on yellows.

Can't get carded today or will be out against Iran I believe.

Correct
