USA! USA! USA! U.S. Soccer Team Defeats Iran 1-0 in World Cup Match, Netherlands Next

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.29.22

According to a Fox News report, the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team is on its way to the Round of 16 after their 1-0 win over Iran on Tuesday; the team will play the Netherlands next on Saturday.

From Fox News:

Through 36 minutes, the U.S. had seven shots, two of them saved off headers. After all their chances in this one as well as against England, one was bound to find the net, and one finally did. At the end of the 38th minute, Weston McKennie floated one to Sergino Dest, who headed it toward Christian Pulisic in the middle, and he was able to put a right foot on it and get it in the back of the net.

Pulisic collided with the Iranian keeper and was very slow to get up, and the U.S. briefly played with 10 men as he received treatment. While he returned in the first half, he was subbed out to begin the half with an abdominal injury, ending his game.

As time wound down, Iran almost tied the game at practically the last minute. A ball floated toward Turner, and it skipped right under his legs near the net, but Walker Zimmerman cleared it out of desperation. Iran wanted a foul, but there was no call. Despite Iran turning it up offensively in the second half, and plenty of scares, the American defense was able to prevail, and exhale.
