USMNT star Christian Pulisic took a heavy knock as he opened the scoring for the Stars and Stripes against Iran at the World Cup and was forced off.

WHAT HAPPENED? Pulisic was on target to make it 1-0 to the USMNT in Tuesday's vital World Cup victory over Iran in Qatar. The Chelsea forward bravely converted Sergino Dest's cross but was clattered in the process and required treatment before eventually being forced out of action.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Pulisic did carry on initially but was then forced off at half-time because of the injury. The USMNT confirmed the 24-year-old has suffered an abdominal problem and will be hoping it's not a serious problem that will force him onto the sidelines.

THE VERDICT: Pulisic's efforts went down well with supporters who were left impressed by his commitment to the cause.
