It’s easy for the US on Tuesday against Iran at the 2022 World Cup. Win or go home.
Three of the four teams in Group B – the USA, England and Iran – are still alive for two places in the round of 16. The scenarios are simple.
An Iran or US victory either comes through. A win or draw against England puts the Three Lions in the knockout stages. The Americans can still win the group with England win and lose against Wales, or if England draw and the USA win by at least four goals.
But no scoreboard watching here. The games take place simultaneously.
Here are the biggest moments and top games from the last day in Group B.

After a US Football Association social media account briefly showed the Iranian flag without the Islamic Republic emblem, the Iranian government responded by accusing US Soccer of removing the name of God from its national flag, and the Football Association of Iran said, his country will file a complaint with FIFA. According to a report by The Associated Press, Iran also threatened legal action.
The USSF said in a statement Sunday morning that it had decided to refrain from displaying the official flag on social media accounts to “show support for the women of Iran who are fighting for basic human rights.”
The poles were eventually dismantled and the flag’s emblem restored. A US spokesman said the USSF is still supporting protesters in Iran, and US defense attorney Walker Zimmerman stressed that the team is focused on Tuesday but remains committed to women’s rights.
“I think it’s such a focused group on the task at hand, but at the same time we empathize and we strongly believe in and support women’s rights,” Zimmerman said.
