Iran are aiming to reach the knockout stage of the World Cup for the first time in their history

Iran and USA will conclude their Group B campaigns with an epic clash with both teams battling it out for a knockout-stage spot.

Iran began the tournament in disastrous fashion after a crushing 6-2 defeat against England. It was Iran’s biggest ever defeat on the world stage and a huge blow to a side that had been renowned for its defensive organisation heading into the tournament.

However, Iran responded from the setback and claimed a surprising 2-0 victory against favourites Wales. The result leaves Carlos Quieroz’s side in the driving seat and on the verge of reaching the knockout stages for the first time in their history.

USA began the tournament with a 1-1 draw against Wales. Gregg Berhalter’s side dominated the first half but struggled to deal with a rejuvenated Wales in the second half of the game.

Berhalter’s side followed this up with an impressive 0-0 draw against England. USA dominated the game and their high press and intensity proved very difficult for England to handle. Meanwhile England were overrun by dominant midfield displays from Weston McKennie and Tyler Adams.

Despite impressing in their last game Iran are in the better position heading into the final group game and USA will need a victory to have any chance of progressing into the round of 16.

USA have a hugely talented young team featuring the likes of Weston McKennie, Tyler Adams and Christian Pulisic. They possess a great deal of pace in their team and are likely to replicate England’s tactics against Iran by lining up with a 4-3-3 formation.

USA’s best display at a World Cup came in the inaugural tournament in 1930 when they reached the semi-final.

Iran will enter the game against the USA as underdogs but will be high on confidence after a shock victory against Wales. Mehdi Taremi of Porto and Sardar Azmoun both boast impressive international goal records for Iran and will be hoping to cause problems for the USA defence.
