After entering the second half, the Iranian team gradually stepped up their offensive. In the 64th minute, the Iranian team played a wonderful cooperation in the opponent's penalty area, but Gudos' shot went slightly wide.
In the last half hour of the game, the Iranian team created many chances, but failed to score any goals. In stoppage time, the Iranian team made a free kick in the frontcourt, and Praliganji's header was slightly above the crossbar. In the next attack, the Iranian players believed that the US team fouled in the penalty area, but the referee did not award a penalty.
The score of 1:0 was finally maintained until the end. With this victory, the US team with 5 points has qualified as the second place in this group.
