Having let in six goals against England, they produced a solid defensive display against Wales in the second match before scoring two late goals. However, a draw here may be enough to see them through, and they will likely be challenging to break down once again.
Key Players: Mehdi Taremi, Sardar Azmoun
Team News: Bayer Leverkusen striker Azmoun was back in the starting eleven against Wales as he builds up his fitness, but Alireza Jahanbakhsh missed out through suspension.
Predicted Line-Up: Hosseini, Rezaeian, Hosseini, Pouraliganji, Mohammadi, Gholizadeh, Nourollahi, Ezatollahi, Hajsafi, Azmoun, Taremi
They started strongly against Wales but faded in the second half and were lucky to come away with a draw. Against England, they would have been disappointed to come away with only a point, having dominated the ball in the second half. They need a victory to secure qualification but must get past a well-drilled Iranian defence.
Key Players: Tyler Adams, Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie
Team News: The young American side have produced some exciting attacking play in this tournament and will once again be led by Christian Pulisic. Josh Sargent could return to the starting eleven.
Predicted Line-Up: Turner, Dest, Zimmerman, Ream, Robinson, McKennie, Musah, Adams, Weah, Pulisic, Sargent
