Wales vs Iran: Match Preview:

A crucial Group B match will see Wales look to do the business against the lowest-ranked team in the group, Iran.

Victory for either side in this match would give them a great chance of claiming a knockout stage spot, while a draw or defeat leaves them extremely vulnerable.

Wales, after picking up a late point against the United States, know that victory in this match will be important, but so will goal difference. If they can secure a win, they’ll want to pour on the goals in the hopes of getting a differential advantage over the United States, who will also be expected to pick up a win against Iran.

For the Middle Eastern nation, there is pride at stake, as even if they don’t qualify for the knockout stage, a better showing than their opening match 6-2 defeat to England would be something to enjoy.

Joe Allen has started training again, which is a boost, although he still remains a doubt for this game. Ethan Ampadu and Harry Wilson are also doubts after coming off again the United States.
