Meanwhile, Wales make the one change from Monday’s opening 1-1 draw against the United States as forward Kieffer Moore starts after impressing off the bench the last time out.

Wales captain Gareth Bale is set to become his country’s most-capped player of all time when he makes his 110th appearance against Iran. The forward will overtake team-mate Chris Gunter, who is on the bench for this game.
