The FIFA World Cup can be equal parts exhilarating and heartbreaking. However, after several years of struggles, the United States Men's National Team (USMNT) is finally enjoying some good luck in one of the world's biggest sporting events.

On Tuesday afternoon, the U.S. defeated Iran 1-0 in the Group B Finale. It was only the third time the USMNT won a match at the World Cup since 2002. Now the upstart team advances to the knockout stage. 

Of course, our focus is always on what players and coaches wear. Coach Gregg Berhalter is developing a fanbase of sneakerheads who pay close attention to what the 49-year-old has on his feet.

Berhalter always wears either Nike or Air Jordan - often exclusive sneakers that are highly sought after by fans. During today's match against Iran, Berhalter wore a custom pair of Air Jordans. Below is everything fans need to know about the kicks.
