Wales’ expectations of fitting the bill for the knockout phases of the World Cup were run by a frantically frustrating 2-0 loss to Iran.
Ransack Page’s side were toiled and torpid all through the challenge, and were fixed back for huge periods as Iran heaped forward looking for objectives.
Wayne Hennessey’s late red card extended the game past Wales’ abilities, and it was passed on to stoppage time objectives from Roozbeh Cheshmi and Ramin Rezaeian to break the hearts of Gareth Bales and co.
Wales brought down in boiling Qatar heat
There were high expectations that Wales, who didn’t play especially well against the US until the presentation of Kieffer Moore, could declare their power over an Iran side pummeled by England on matchday one.
The Dragons looked splendid enough right off the bat, molding two or three possibilities, however Iran were similarly just about as compromising as they hoped to get Sardar Azmoun running in behind. Carlos Queiroz‘s side even had an objective chalked off for offside, as Alireza Gholizedah unnecessarily ran offside to gather Azmoun’s square ball – he maybe ought to have shot himself.
Moore had a decent exertion saved by Hossein Hosseini, yet Iran completed the half on top as they hoped to play through an incapable Welsh midfield. Ethan Ampadu was in many cases overwhelmed in the holding job, and there was an unmistakable absence of value from Aaron Ramsey.
Iran were the better group in the final part and struck the woodwork two times through Azmoun and Gholizedah, before additional strain on the counter assault saw Wayne Hennessey shipped off for a wild test on Mehdi Taremi.
The strain in the end told on Wales, as Joe Allen‘s unfortunate freedom tumbled to the feet of Roozbeh Cheshmi and he twisted home from 25 yards out. Ramin Rezaeian put the sparkle on the scoreline for Iran, splitting away to net in the twelfth moment of stoppage time.
