They were very dominant in the opening period, and Christian Pulisic scored their lone goal in the 38th minute.
Rezaeian in particular displayed a lot of skill on the right side during the second half as Iran appeared to be a much superior team, but they failed utterly to get a shot past Turner.
With the victory, the USA comes second in Group B and joins England in advancing to the round of 16.
