The match is crucial, with one team sure to go home: The U.S. needs a win to make it to the knockout round, and Iran must win or tie to do the same. But the game also brings political baggage. On Sunday, Iran called for the U.S. to be kicked out World Cup following a since-deleted Tweet from the United States Soccer Federation supporting protesters in Iran. Tensions deepened at a news conference yesterday, where Iranian media grilled the U.S. team with questions of racial discrimination in America to U.S. Naval movement.
In other words, today’s game is a must-watch for U.S. soccer fans. If you’re still figuring out how to watch USA vs. Iran online, read on. Below, we’ve outlined how to live stream the game online, and we’ve found a few ways to watch USA vs. Iran online for free.
