Iran scored twice in stoppage time to beat 10-man Wales and keep their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stage of the World Cup alive. Wales’s best chance of the game came early on when Moore’s poked effort was pushed away by Hosseini. After that, it was Iran who dominated. Gholizadeh had a first half goal disallowed for offside before an onslaught after the break. Going close, Azmoun and Gholizadeh crashed the post within nine seconds of each other before Wales went down to 10. Bundling into Taremi outside the box, Hennessey was given a yellow card before a VAR check upgraded it to a red. From then, Iran pushed the Welsh defence and broke the deadlock in the 98th-minute. It came through substitute Cheshmi, who drilled the ball into the bottom corner from outside the box. With Page’s side committing men forward, Iran doubled their advantage three minutes later. Taremi squared the ball to Rezaeian on the edge, who dinked it over Ward.
