storylines

Wales: Bale’s late penalty salvaged a point for the Welsh side at the same venue earlier in the week, and Robert Page’s men now need all three points to advance to the knockout stages against England, their last opponents in Group B. Should they not win here, things could get complicated if the USMNT manage to surprise Gareth Southgate’s men.

Page must decide whether to start Kieffer Moore after his role in saving a tie against the Americans, while Daniel James and Harry Wilson could be sidelined, and there are some doubts about Ethan Ampadu after his ankle sustained a blow. Joe Morrell could come in, but so could Joe Allen despite his recent injury woes.

Iran: It is a matter of pride and decency for Carlos Quieroz’s men to be eliminated from the tournament. Despite Mehdi Taremi’s brace, there are question marks at several positions with a forced goal change due to Alireza Beiranvand’s head injury. Hossein Hosseini was expected to come on while Sardar Azmoun got the start and Ali Gholizadeh also found Tartemi’s first goal off the bench.

forecast

Although Wales won’t be as productive as England, they should have enough firepower to get the win they need here ahead of their meeting with the Three Lions. Expect Gareth Bale to play a pivotal role again.
