The USA had to face a tough group, with the likes of England, Iran and Wales. However, they managed to finish the group stage unbeaten, a feat accomplished by only 4 other teams. What is even more shocking is that they conceded just 1 goal in the group stage. No other team managed to concede less group stage goals than that. However, the USA could not finish above England and had to face Netherlands, who were in great form. Their round of 16 match against them ended their World Cup journey.
