In their win-or-go-home away match against Iran on Tuesday afternoon,

the US Men's National Team came tantalisingly close to a 2-0 lead.

Tim Weah seemed to have scored just before the break, but VAR determined that he was offside.

It's hard to tell, but it appears like Weah's kneecap is just out of position in this picture. 

If it hadn't been, the United States would now be up by two rather than one.

The USMNT is now in control despite this goal being reversed. 

To advance to the round of 16 and face the Netherlands, they only need to play well in the second half while leading.

The rest of this competition is shown on FOX.
