Two goals deep in second-half stoppage time sealed a 2-0 victory for Iran to leave their knockout hopes hanging by a thread. Roozbeh Cheshmi and Ramin Rezaeian both got on the scoresheet against Wales with Cheshmi’s effort was the latest match-winning strike scored in any World Cup game (excluding extra-time) since exact goal times available for the competition (from 1966). “We played brilliantly and deserved to win,” Carlos Queiroz said after the game. His men are guaranteed to progress if they beat USA.

In Mehdi Taremi, Queiroz currently has this World Cup’s best playmaker, with the Porto forward creating a tournament-high nine chances for his team-mates. Eight of those came against Wales which, incredibly, is the most created in a single World Cup game across the last two tournaments. Christian Pulisic certainly knows about Taremi’s qualities, after the forward netted an outrageous bicycle-kick winner in the Champions League against Chelsea back in April 2021.

As for the United States, following back-to-back draws, it’s simple: win and they are through. Lose or draw and they will be heading home. Gregg Berhalter’s side will be in a buoyant mood after their goalless stalemate with England. This was the USA’s first clean sheet against a European nation in the World Cup since they won 1-0 against England in 1950. They had gone 18 such games without one before. “We’re proud but our work’s not done. We have to win on Tuesday,” Berhalter said afterwards “We know five points get us in and we have to focus on the five points.”
