The United States Men’s National Soccer Team takes on Iran in a must-win game in the group stage finale at Qatar 2022. Find out what would happen if the USMNT ties with the Asian side.

Qatar 2022 is getting to the crucial stages as there is a lot to play for in the group stage final. The United States Men’s National Team and Iran face off on Matchday 3 of Group B, with progress to the knockout rounds of the FIFA World Cup at stake.

The USMNT have yet to win a game in the tournament, drawing with Wales and England. The Stars and Stripes now depend on each other to qualify for the next round, although it won’t be easy.

Led by veteran manager Carlos Queiroz, Iran took a huge step towards the knockout stage by taking all three points against Wales in their last game. Therefore, many wonder what would happen if the US-Iran game finished the level.

What would happen if the USMNT and Iran draw in 2022 World Cup

A draw with Iran would eliminate the USMNT from the 2022 World Cup. England are atop Group B with 4 points, followed by Iran with 3 points, while the USA have just 2 points. Consequently, another tie wouldn’t be enough for Gregg Berhalter’s men to finish among the top two in the group. Meanwhile, Iran would automatically qualify with a draw if Wales don’t beat England – otherwise, the tiebreaker would come into play.

Who do you think will make it out of this group, the USA or Iran?
