Wales: Kieffer Moore. The 6-foot-5 forward changed the game against the US when he came out at half-time. Will he have an impact from the start this time around?
Iran: Hossein Hosseini. Team substitute goalkeeper Melly had to come off the bench 20 minutes into the game against England after starter Alireza Beiranvand suffered a nasty head injury (and stayed in the game too long after that). Hosseini turned down all six of Iran’s conceded goals.

Qatar: Hassan Al Haidos. Without a doubt, the host country faded into the spotlight on opening night. Now the question is, was it nerves, or was the talent gap really that big? The team’s results over recent years suggest that this was the first. Let’s see if this game will bring proof to the captain of Qatar.
Senegal: Boulaye Dia. Senegal beat the Netherlands 15-10 in the first leg but did not score. Lions of Teranga #9 should make sure this doesn’t happen again.

Netherlands: Cody Gakpo. His sharp run and headbutt that broke a scoreless match against Senegal late in the final minutes showed why big English teams want to see him.
Ecuador: Enner Valencia. The 33-year-old striker showed that he is still doing well by scoring both goals. La Trigoals against Qatar.

Betting odds: England -185, USA +500, draw +320.
England: Harry Kane. There were fears that the England captain suffered an ankle injury in Iran’s first defeat, but he passed all medical tests. If he is at his best, it will be another headache for the US defense, which already has to contend with a whole flotilla of English stars.
United States: Gio Reina. It’s nothing new for athletes to say they’re perfectly healthy when coaches and doctors don’t. If American manager Gregg Berhalter was worried about Reyna’s frequently injured hamstrings after the 20-year-old got a little tense in a scrum last Thursday, there was good reason for that. But the word is now Reina ready to goso it’s time to see it. He can help in this particular match as well, with possession and defense in addition to his attacking skills.
