Top Two Tips for Iran vs United States

Iran and the USA go head-to-head for only the second time in their history and once again, it's at the World Cup. Back in 1998, Iran beat USA 2-1 in what was a hugely hyped-up game given the political history between the two countries and while it might not carry the same meaning over 20-years later, the United States will be out for revenge.

Draw

We're expecting this game to be tight and tense throughout and have backed the two countries to cancel one another out in their third and final group game. There wasn't much between the two teams when they last locked horns and football in the United States has improved tenfold. Both teams have some recognisable names in their squads and will head into the match believing they can each secure all 3pts.

Under 2.5 Goals

We're not expecting many goals in this game as it should be very closely fought. As of the 26th of September, four of Iran's last six outings in all competitions have produced under 2.5 goals and the same can be said for four of the United States last six fixtures. Not much is expected from either of these two teams in Group B with some suggesting that they don't have the firepower to propel them into the knockout stage.

Can Iran upset the odds once again when they play USA?

Iran

Ehsan Hajsafi captains Iran and the 32-year-old AEK Athens defender has 120-caps and 7-goals for his country (as of 26/09/2022), while fellow defender Milad Mohammadi also plays for the Greek club and the pair will know each other's game inside and out. Moving into midfield, Saman Ghoddos of Brentford is the most recognisable name and he will be set the task of creating goals as well as offering another attacking option with late runs into the box. In attack, Iran are spoilt for choice somewhat with Alireza Jahanbakhsh of Feyenoord, Porto's Mehdi Taremi and Sardar Azmoun of Leverkusen all competent goalscorers at international level and playing at a high level domestically.

USA

Defending could prove the USA's downfall in Qatar. Sergino Dest is their most recognisable defender and he now plays for AC Milan while DeAndre Yedlin, once of Newcastle, is back in his home country playing for Inter Miami but the rest of the defenders are a little less well known and there isn't a lot of experience in the backline. The USA don't have that problem in midfield though with the likes of Weston McKennie, Tyler Adams, Luca de la Torre and Malik Tillman all playing for well-known clubs in Europe, not forgetting Kellyn Acosta of Los Angeles FC who has over 50-caps for his country. In attack, Christian Pulisic could make all the difference but he has struggled to get into the Chelsea team on a regular basis, while Brenden Aaronson is now a Premier League player with Leeds and Josh Sargent is a hardworking forward playing for Norwich in the Championship.
