U.S. vs. Iran at the World Cup: How to Stream

After a tournament-opening 1-1 draw with Wales and a scoreless draw with England, the United States has one more group-stage game at the World Cup in Qatar. The Americans can advance to the knockout stage with a victory against Iran.

Tuesday at 2 p.m. Eastern time. That’s 10 p.m. in Qatar.

The game will be broadcast on Fox (in English) and on Telemundo (in Spanish).

To stream the English-language broadcast, you’ll need a subscription to a streaming package that includes Fox, like YouTube TV, Hulu, SlingTV or Fubo. (Some offer free trials.) Tubi will stream the game for free, but only as a replay, after the game is over.

Peacock will stream the Spanish-language broadcast. (Peacock Premium is $4.99 a month.)

The situation is simple: If the United States defeats Iran, it will advance to the round of 16. If it ties or loses, it will be eliminated.

With a victory, the United States will most likely go through as the second-place team from its group. But if Wales upsets England, the Americans will win Group B.

Should the United States advance, it would play a game in the round of 16 on Saturday or Sunday, quite possibly against the Netherlands, although Ecuador or Senegal are also potential opponents. A quarterfinal opponent might be Argentina, Poland, Australia or Denmark. And it would only get tougher from there.

Before the Iran game, bookmakers offered roughly 180-to-1 odds on the United States lifting the FIFA World Cup Trophy.

The United States has just one goal, against Wales. It was scored by Tim Weah, assisted by Christian Pulisic.

This is the 11th World Cup for the U.S. men. The team’s best performance came in the first World Cup in 1930, held in Uruguay, when it made the semifinals. That tournament was missing several top teams from Europe, however. The best recent performance was a quarterfinal berth in 2002. (The U.S. women have won four World Cups, including the inaugural tournament in 1991 .)

The U.S. team has an average age of 25 years 214 days; it is the second-youngest squad of the 32-team field, according to Nielsen’s Gracenote, a data provider. Only Ghana, with an average of 25 years 108 days, has a younger 26-man squad.
