Iran vs USA preview

After a disappointing start against England, Iran were the clear better team against Wales and ran out 2-0 winners. In Mehdi Taremi and a fit-again Sardar Azmoun Iran have undoubted quality up front and in scoring two goals deep into injury time demonstrated their sheer determination. Curiously, Iran manager Carlos Queiroz was once hired by the USA to write a plan on how they could win the world cup by 2010 and now he has the chance to send them home. Providing Wales cannot beat England, a draw would be enough to qualify, but a win will see them through regardless of results elsewhere. 

Despite being underdogs, the USA were considered by many to be the better side against England, and had Christian Pulisic's thunderbolt not hit the frame of the goal it could have been a historic win. After two draws, Gregg Berhalter's team needs to get a win on the board if they are to reach the last 16. Keeping England's all-stars quiet last time out (they had just three shots on target) will fill the USMNT defense with confidence. It is at the other end of the pitch where they need to improve, they must add to Timothy Weah's sole goal if they are to match 2014's round of 16 performance. 

The Iran vs USA live stream is full of narratives, but it is on the pitch that this high-stakes game will be settled. Whatever happens, at least one side will have their hearts broken, don't miss the ecstasy and the agony.

Iran vs USA team news

Regardless of whether they qualify or not, Iranian goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand will miss the rest of the tournament with a head injury while Feyenoord winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh is suspended after back-to-back yellow cards. Coming back from injury, Sardar Azmoun proved his fitness by starting against Wales and will do so again in this crunch match against the USA. 

With no injuries or suspensions, Gregg Berhalter has the luxury of a full squad ahead of this match. But doesn't mean that every place has been up for grabs in the build up. As expected, captain Tyler Adams starts while Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie are key players also retain their places. The duos experience of big games at Chelsea and Juventus will be crucial if USA are to find the win they desperately need. 

Iran: Beiranvand, Rezaeian, Majid Hosseini, Pouraliganji, Mohammadi, Noorollahi, Ezatolahi, Hajsafi, Gholizadeh, Azmoun, Taremi.

USA: Turner, Dest, Carter-Vickers, Ream, Robinson, McKennie, Adams, Musah, Weah, Sargent, Pulisic.
