USA v Iran
Live coverage of the Group F meeti ng from the Stade de Gerland in Lyon (kickoff
8pm). While these two teams are expected to be the group's also-rans, this is nevertheless an eagerly awaited fixture, not least because the two countries haven't had any diplomatic relations for nearly 20 years.
This culture clash carries much political baggage but on the field it could prove to be an entertaining encounter. The Americans, undertheircoach
Steve Sampson , are committed to an attacking style but a lack of pace in defence may hinder them. In contrast, Iran are strong at the backwhile lacking forwards of any great strength.
Tonight's programme also includes action from the Group H match Argentina v Jamaica and the Group Fclash Germany v Yugoslavia. Introduced by Desmond Lynam with Alan Hansen and David Ginola.
Commentary is by Barry Davies and David Pleat.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
