Match Preview: Iran vs USA – Team news, Predicted XIs

Iran vs USA

Iran are on the verge of history as they stand a chance of qualifying to the next round of the FIFA World Cup for the first time in their history.

Despite suffering a 6 – 2 loss in their opening match, Iran responded with an impressive 2 – 0 win over Wales. However, they face a formidable USA side who are yet to lose so far in the competition and are in search of a win after gaining only two points so far.

The United States’ winless run is rather worrying as they have failed to win since their win over Grenada in June (4 draws, 1 loss). Gregg Berhalter’s men go into this match knowing that only a win will guarantee them a place in the next round.

Iran vs USA – Players to Watch

Despite poor scoring form recently for his country, Iran winger Ali Gholizadeh is their biggest threat having seen a goal disallowed against Wales.

The United States of America can count on captain Tyler Adams for leadership and motivation ahead of the must-win match.
