England remains at the top of Group B with four points, while the U.S. needs a win against Iran to advance. The U.S. beat England at the 1950 World Cup shocking the world. Their first matchup against England at the World Cup. The American team was a bunch of nobodies and included a mailman, grave digger, dishwasher, and school teacher.
