Iran and USA clash in a crunch tie to secure qualification to next round

Iran and USA face off in the final fixture of the group stages with both nations vying for a spot in the knockout stages.

Iran are guaranteed a spot in the next round with a win over USA but can also make it through with a draw if Wales fail to beat England (goal difference will play a crucial role in this case)

USA played a spirited stalemate against England in their previous fixture and their hopes for making it to the next round rely on them securing a win today. A draw or a loss and USA will find themselves packing home.
