Team Melli secured their first three points against Wales. Iran were the better side and deserved all the points. The game kicked off with chances from both ends but without a breakthrough. However, it all changed when Wales were down to ten men a few minutes before the final whistle. Iran took advantage and surged forward; they got their first goal in the 98th minute and extended the lead in the last seconds of the game.
The win implies Iran need another victory or a stalemate here to stand a chance. It will be a challenging game against a desperate USA who are yet to taste a win in this tournament.
Iran Starting 11 (4-4-2): H. Hosseini; Rezaeian, M. Hosseini, Pouraliganji; Mohammadi; Gholizadeh, Nourollahi, Ezatolahi, Hajsafi; Taremi, Ansarifard

The Yanks are yet to register a win in this tournament, their first game ended in a (1-1) draw. USA's second game against England was one of the most entertaining games in the competition, although it lacked goals. They were the better side and merited all the points but failed to find the back of the net. They had ten shots and managed just one on goal. They hit the woodwork once and created a big chance.
The United States World Cup campaign have been slightly underwhelming, considering their squad is full of players based at European clubs - many of whom have also played Champions League football.
USA Starting 11 (4-3-3): Turner; Dest, Zimmerman, Ream, Robinson; McKennie, Adams, Musah; Reyna, Ferreira, Pulisic
Expert Betting Tips
Iran, which has three points, will be careful not to concede first and will be pleased with a point. However, the United States are more desperate here for all the points. If the USA played as they did against England and somehow convert their chances, they might secure all the points here. It’s a tough pick, but we anticipate a win for the USA for 1.99.
Iran already showed they could score against any side with four goals; bet on BTTS for 1.95.
This is the USA's last chance, and we are confident they won’t sit back and watch Iran press them. It’s an open game, and we expect a total of over 2.5 goals here 2.08.
