What to Expect From Iran        

Iran have qualified for the World Cup for the third time in succession but will look to make more of an impact at Qatar 22 than in their past performances. They’ve failed to emerge from the group stage in their previous five appearances at the World Cup, recording only two wins.

Iran reached the semi-finals of the Asian Cup in 2019, which was a sign of progress before losing out to Japan. Dragan Skocic were extremely impressive during qualifying, finishing top of Group A, ahead of South Korea. There should be optimism among Iranian football fans that their side should be able to compete against the USA.

Sardar Azmoun Striker 14 10
Mehdi Taremi Striker 13 8
Alireza Jahanbakhsh Forward 12 5
Ali Gholizadeh Midfielder 14 3

Iran have talent in their ranks led by Azmoun, who boasted an impressive goalscoring record during qualifying. It will be up to the forward to spearhead the attack against USA and Iran’s other FIFA World Cup Group B opponents.

Taremi also has a strong pedigree in the final third, while support will come from the dangerous Jahanbakhsh off the flank. Iran have enough attacking talent to cause problems, although issues may come at the back, where there is a lack of experience and depth of options.

Manager Skocic took charge in 2020 and steered his team through the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers with ease. The 53-year-old will want to become the first coach to guide Iran into the second round of the World Cup in Qatar 2022.

How Will the USA Perform?

The United States had to battle their way through 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification. The USMNT finished third behind Mexico and Canada to secure their place at Qatar 2022.

It was a surprise considering their form in other tournaments, winning the CONCACAF Nations League and Gold Cup with victories over Mexico. As a result, the States should be confident about emerging from Group B if they play to their potential.

Christian Pulisic Midfielder 10 5
Ricardo Pepi Striker 10 3
Brendan Aaronson Midfielder 11 2
Weston McKennie Midfielder 7 2

The USA has a lot of talented players at their disposal. Pulisic will be the key man in the Iran vs USA contest, using his pace and skill in the final third. Manager Gregg Berhalter will look to the Chelsea man to take over the contest and be their star at Qatar 2022. 

However, Brenden Aaronson, Yunus Musah, Giovanni Reyna and Ricardo Pepi will also provide excitement on the attack. The midfield has a strong engine room with Weston McKennie and Tyler Adams, who will provide an important shield in front of the backline. The defence is likely to be the States’ weakness in the competition, with few standout players expected to be present in their squad.

Manager Berhalter has an impressive record since taking over his post in 2018. However, he and his players will have to be flawless to reach the knockout stage and emerge with a victory in the Iran vs USA contest in Doha.

Betting tips and odds on Iran vs USA in FIFA World Cup Group B

The FIFA World Cup 2022 Group B contest between Iran vs USA should be an enthralling one. It could well be that the second-round hopes of both these sides rest on the result in the final Group B match. Therefore, it should be a fascinating contest. The USA should be able to see a win in this one due to their firepower in the final third against an inexperienced Iranian defence. 

Iran do have the players to get at least one goal between Azmoun and Taremi in the final third. However, Pulisic, Reyna and Aaronson, among others, should allow the USA to notch a 2-1 victory. Azmoun could be a solid option for anytime goalscorer given his record in front of goal during qualifying. 

American viewers can watch the contest on Fox Sports in the United States.
