A spot in the knockout round is on the line as Iran and the United States close out their respective group stage schedule at Qatar 2022.

It's a must-win for the Americans, who enter the match third in Group B with two points following a pair of draws against Wales and England. The U.S. have looked good for much of their time at the World Cup thus far, but a lack of scoring threat has hampered the team and put them in a do-or-die position.

For second-place Iran, Tuesday's match is a must-not-lose, as a draw would likely be enough to see them through to the round of 16, depending on how successful Wales are against England in the group's other closing game. However, the Iranians will be wary of coming out too conservatively given the thrashing they received at the hands of the English on Match Day 1.

Iran vs. USA: What stadium is hosting the match?

Al Thumama Stadium

Along with two other venues, the Al Thumama Stadium is the smallest at Qatar 2022 but is probably the most visually unique of them all. 

Designed to resemble a traditional taqiyah hat worn by men and boys in the Middle East, the stadium holds 40,000 seats. It officially opened in October 2021, and hosted six FIFA Arab Cup 2021 matches.

Six group stage matches are scheduled to be held at the venue, with a round of 16 and a quarter-final match also set to be played there.
