In the first half, Wales tried to control the game by patiently touching the ball and looking for spaces. Iran expected mistakes to strike back. They weren’t lacking: the British struggled to set up plays. They had possession, but they didn’t create great chances.

On the other hand, Iranians had difficulty fitting a counterattack.

The team only started to impose itself in the second stage: it dominated the match and fought during the 55 minutes. Stopped on the beam on two occasions. Wales lost possession and didn’t react, it just seemed to watch the Iranians play.

In the end, came the first expulsion from the Cup: goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey left the area after an Asian launch and hit the Iranian with a kick in the face. With the help of VAR, the referee showed the red, leaving the British in trouble.

Iran did not give up and, crushing the defense of Wales inside the area, in the 53rd minute of the second stage, Rousbeh Cheshmi scored the first goal from outside the area in this edition of the World Cup. Welsh fell to the lawn.

From there, it became a walk. Iranians stole the ball amid the desperation of the opponents and, before the game ended, scored the second, at 56, with Ramin Rezaeian.

The last game of the Iranians will be against the Americans, on Tuesday (29), at 4 pm, while the Welsh will have to beat their English neighbors on the same day and time to continue dreaming of the Cup.
