Far from rock solid to say the least. " Another added: "Zimmerman’s pass distribution was poor against England, but still stunned he made that change.
Star man Sardar Azmoun was struggling with an injury against Wales but is expected to play. For the USA, they have a full squad available to choose from with no new injury worries.

The USA captain, 23, apologized for the pronunciation.
The teamsheet - due around 1pm ET - should be very interesting. Goal shy The USA have scored just one goal so far in their opening two matches. And Berhalter says he has a 'plan' to change that against Iran - although it likely won't be Gio Reyna like some fans are suggesting. He revealed: "We talked about this last time, especially after the [England] game when I said how difficult goals are in the World Cup. "It’s hard to come by goals, and that’s what we’ve found. For us, it’s about how we put our players in a position to create chances. "We’ve been defending really well and that keeps you in games.

The clip, shared with their 8, 000 followers, shows Iranian fans celebrating, while Christian Pulisic shakes hands with the opposition. Ad enough USA captain Tyler Adams is not expecting Iran to 'park the bus' today. And he is anticipating a hard-fought game against a team who will come to win. He said: "After watching Iran’s last game, I would not expect them to (park the bus) because they went after the game and they were looking for three points. "You could tell from the mentality, the group, they were attacking and counter-attacking, doing everything they needed to do. "Fighting in every single duel, every tackle.

Follow ALL the latest from this huge World Cup game below... Stat attack Iran are looking to progress to the knockout stages for the first time in their history. They can qualify if they get a draw in this game and Wales fail to beat England in the group’s other contest. The Stars and Stripes have lost just once when captain Tyler Adams has worn the armband (W4, D5). But the USA have won just two of their last 14 World Cup matches (D6, L6). The USMNT have reached the knockout stages in their last two World Cup final appearances - but have gone out in the last-16 on each occasion.
Every single moment of the game looked like it could be their moment to score a goal. So I’m not expecting them to do that (play defensively). "We know that it’s a knockout and of course we have to attack. I mean, I’m not the coach of their team, so I’m not exactly sure what they’re gonna do but, based off of last game, I’m expecting them to come after it. " Where is Gio? He's the 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund winger and one of the US team’s most promising young talents. But Gio Reyna has played just seven minutes so far in this World Cup. According to his coach, Reyna’s lack of minutes are due to “tightness” in an injury. But Reyna himself has claimed he is fully fit and ready to go.
