Gregg Berhalter’s team clinched a point against one of the tournament’s favorites, England, after shutting out The Three Lions in a goalless stalemate at the World Cup in Qatar on Black Friday.

The USA impressed against the Three Lions and arguably had the better chances with Christian Pulisic smashing a strike against the crossbar in a gripping affair at the Qatar World Cup.

However, despite spells of dominance, Adams claimed his team didn’t deserve to emerge form the rivalry clash with all three points.

‘I’m not sure if we deserved to win. It was probably a 50-50 game in the end. They had some chances and so did we but we competed really well and we showed a lot of our quality,’ Adams told BBC Radio 5 Live.

There is still work to be done if the US hopes to progress to the knockout stages of the World Cup.

Adams and Co. need to beat Iran in the final Group B game to progress to the last 16 as a tie or a loss will send them packing.

‘The job is nowhere [near] done,’ he insisted. ‘We have to face a quality team against Iran. We need to be 100 percent mentally focused.’

‘We know five points get us in and we have to focus on the five points.’

Dempsey placed praise on the midfield trio of Tyler Adams, Musah, and Weston Mckennie, while also singling out centerback Tim Ream.

The match on Tuesday will be do or die for the United States as they need to take all three points from the match in order to advance from the group stage, otherwise they will be watching the rest of the tournament from home.

England holds the most secure position in the group as they merely need to avoid defeat in the final game against Wales to advance.

Wales on the other hand face the hardest path to advance as they would not only need to defeat England by a substantial margin but also hope for a draw in the USA vs Iran game.
