Second round kick-off: Wales – Iran 0-0 (half-time)



A win brings the chances of advancing in a group with England and the USA

Without respite, the 22nd FIFA World Cup continues with the 2nd round. The first match is played in Al Rajan by Wales and Iran. The Welsh scored a point against the USA, while the Iranians lost 2-6 against England. Victory brings hope for promotion.

The match at Al Rajan started quite lively, with chances on both sides. In the 16th minute, Connor Roberts gave himself the ball and Iran grabbed the gift: after a double pass by Sardar Azmoun – Ali Golizadeh the latter scored, but from a forbidden position and there was nothing from the leadership of the Iranians.

The Welsh have a futile field initiative, but they still have no real idea how to break through the Iranians’ disciplined defense this time.

44 years ago in the only confrontation 1:0 for Wales

The Welsh, who drew with the USA in the opening match after being rather powerless in the first half, appeared in better shape in the second half. They are aware that a victory over the Iranians is crucial in the fight for promotion, but they expect a motivated Persian squad that will want to improve the impression.

They believe that there will be a visible reaction from Iran, who drew twice and conceded seven times in nine games against European national teams at the World Championships, and scored 20 goals. Iran coach Carlos Queiroz said he believes his charges have learned a lot from the defeat to England and will put in a better performance against the Dragons. So far, the two selected species have faced each other once.

In 1978, the two national teams played their only match against each other, a friendly match won by Wales 1:0.
