Wales come into their World Cup clash with Iran in Qatar knowing it is a game to be won.

Rob Page’s side began their Group B campaign by fighting back to draw 1-1 with the United States in what was Wales’ first World Cup match for 64 years.

Meanwhile, Iran suffered a comprehensive 6-2 defeat to group favorites England, but they will draw confidence from their two goals against the Three Lions – both coming via Mehdi Taremi, one of them on penalty.

After Wales take on Iran, England take on the United States in the day’s other Group B game.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is it?

Wales v Iran is scheduled to start at 10am GMT (1pm local time) on Friday 25 November.

The match will take place at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan.

How can I watch it?

In the UK, the match will be shown live on BBC One, and it will also be shown live on the broadcaster’s website and on the BBC iPlayer app. S4C will also broadcast the match in Wales.

Ethan Ampadu suffered an ankle problem in Wales’ draw with the United States, while Kieffer Moore is set to start after his game-changing performance on the bench earlier in the week.

For Iran, Alireza Beiranvand cannot feature due to concussion protocols after the keeper was substituted against England after a header clash. Hossein Hosseini, who replaced him, should start in his place.
