FIFA World Cup 2022: Iran strike late to beat Wales 2-0 in a thriller | Football News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Iran scored twice in the stoppage time to register a thrilling 2-0 win over a 10-man Wales in their FIFA World Cup 2022 Group B match at Ahmed bin Ali Stadium.
With this win, Iran have kept their hopes alive of reaching the World Cup knockout stages.
Rouzbeh Cheshmi scored in the eighth minute of stoppage time to break a scoreless stalemate. Cheshmi’s strike from outside the box was just beyond the diving reach of Wales backup goalkeeper Danny Ward, who was pressed into duty when starter Wayne Hennessey was sent off in the 86th minute.
Hennessey received the first red card of the Qatar World Cup he was sent off for clattering into Iran’s Mehdi Taremi outside the area late in the match.
Ramin Rezaeian added a second goal moments later and Iran wildly celebrated while some of the Welsh players dropped in disbelief to the field.
Wales star Gareth Bale made his 110th appearance for his team, the most all-time for the national team.
