Wales vs Iran preview
At halftime against the USA, Wales fans would have been seriously concerned that their first World Cup game in 64 years was going to end in defeat. The side looked disjointed and Timothy Weah had put the U.S. ahead after 36 minutes. Thankfully Gareth Bale rescued a point from the penalty spot, but a win against Iran would be a moment of Welsh footballing history and Robert Page knows that this fixture is his side’s best hope of victory in a tricky Group B.
The Iran squad refused to sing their own national anthem last time out, which sent a powerful message around the world, but on the pitch, things did not quite go to plan. Finding themselves 4-0 down after 60 minutes as the result of some sloppy defending and poor passing. From this position, they did rally to see the game finish 6-2 but a dismal 21% possession cannot be repeated in this fixture. It was Mehdi Taremi (of Porto) who scored both goals but he will need his teammates to start contributing more if the underdogs are to progress further in the tournament.
Both sides will be desperate to chalk up a first win of the competition and boost their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages — which would be seen as a success for either side. The Wales vs Iran live stream is perfect for those who love an underdog story.
Wales vs Iran team news
