USMNT Starting XI: Sargent Returns, Carter-Vickers In vs. Iran

Gregg Berhalter has made two major changes to the United States men’s national team starting lineup ahead of Tuesday’s make or break match against Iran.

Josh Sargent, who started up top for the USMNT in the opening group stage match against Wales, will start at striker once again, replacing Haji Wright. On the opposite end of the pitch, Cameron Carter-Vickers will see his first-ever World Cup action at centerback in place of veteran Walker Zimmerman.

The lineup will mark the youngest starting XI of any team at the Qatar World Cup thus far.

Here’s a look at Berhalter’s complete choices for the USMNT’s final group stage match.
