Rob Page has made this Wales side tough to beat as was evident when they drew with the USA in their opening match. They will be focused on keeping it tight at the back before relying on their seasoned professionals to make a difference at the other end.
Key Players: Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Ben Davies
Team News: Bale has been in and out of the team since moving to LA but stepped up to the mark against the USA when converting a penalty late on in the game.
Predicted Line-Up: Ward, Roberts, Rodon, Davies, Williams, Ampadu, Ramsey, Allen, Bale, Wilson, Johnson
Iran’s World Cup got off to the worst possible start with a 6-2 defeat against England, but they will take some hope from the fact they managed to score twice against one of the favourites for the tournament. However, they’re likely to struggle against the Welsh, and another defeat is predicted.
Key Players: Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Mehdi Taremi
Team News: Taremi scored twice against England, highlighting his ability as a proven goalscorer at the highest level.
Predicted Line-Up: Abedzadeh, Moharrami, Kanani, Noorafkan, Mohammadi, Ghoddos, Ezatolahi, Amiri, Jahanbakhsh, Gholizadeh, Taremi
