USMNT Captain Tyler Adams was corrected by a journalist regarding his pronunciation of Iran, who then asked about discrimination against black people in the US.

Adams and US manager Gregg Berhalter were peppered with questions about US-Iran relations ahead of a big game on Tuesday.

After initially correcting Adams' pronunciation of "Iran" in one of his previous answers, the journalist asked Adams how he felt about representing the US despite the "discrimination" against black people.
Adams first apologized for mispronouncing the country "eye-RAN" instead of the correct "EE-rahn," then turned to the question and said, "Everywhere you go, there is discrimination."
Adams said his background — his biological father, who is not a part of his life now, being black and he was raised in a white family — helped him learn how to "assimilate." He also cited the journalist's correction of his pronunciation as an example of a helpful teaching moment.
"I was able to integrate into different cultures very easily," said Adams. "Not everyone has that ease and that ability to do that. Obviously it takes others longer to understand and through education I think it's super important - like you just taught me your country's pronunciation.

"It's a process. I think as long as you see progress, that's the most important thing."
Adams was praised for his handling of a difficult situation.
Adams and USMNT manager Gregg Berhalter were peppered with tough questions throughout the press conference. Berhalter deflected questions about international politics and the US-Iran relationship by saying he and the team were trying to focus on the upcoming game.
Iranian state media called for the US team to be banned from the World Cup after the US Football Association removed the Islamic Republic's emblem from the Iranian flag in a social media post. The move was a gesture of support for Iranian protesters.
Tuesday's game between the USA and Iran is a massive game in which the USA will need to win straight away to advance from Group B to the knockout rounds.
