Wales secured a 1-1 draw with USA in their tournament-opener, Gareth Bale’s penalty ensuring Rob Page’s team came from behind to secure a crucial point.

Meanwhile, Iran will want to move on quickly from their 6-2 dismantling by England, though they will take some heart from their two goals against the Three Lions as they take on the Welsh.

Then, later on Friday, England face USA in Group B’s other game.
