CAMERON CARTER-VICKERS will START for the USA in their vital World Cup match against Iran tonight with a win enough to book a place in the competition’s knockout stages.

The Celtic defender hasn’t seen any action so far in the World Cup and has been given the chance to shine in the biggest game of the tournament so far.

Cameron was on the outside looking in while toiling at Spurs; a loan move to Celtic last year put him back into international contention, and his work this season got him booked on the flight to Qatar. After the first two games, it appeared as if he would be a spectator throughout, but being named in the starting XI will boost the Hoops star.

Former Celtic loan bhoy Timo Weah is also in the side that takes on Iran on Tuesday evening.

Celtic fans will be delighted for CCV and will be hoping the stand-in Celtic captain can do the business for his country.

From a selfish point of view, a defeat or draw tonight would see CCV head back to Glasgow in good time for the start of the second half of the domestic season/

Celtic are scheduled to play Aberdeen on December 17.
