The USMNT – knowing only a win would do – held on to a 1-0 victory over Iran thanks to a first-half goal from Christian Pulisic. The team weathered a late Iranian storm to post their second shutout in three matches during the 2022 World Cup and advance to face the Netherlands in the Round of 16 on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. CT.
Vermes earned 66 caps for the USMNT from 1988 to 1997 and represented the Stars & Stripes during the 1990 World Cup in Italy – starting all three games as the U.S. returned to the World Cup for the first time in 40 years.
