Iran instructed by FIFA to follow concussion protocols with goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand – G7 News

Iran have been told not to play goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand in their match against Wales after he suffered a concussion against England.

Beiranvand collided head-on with teammate Majid Hosseini and required treatment for several minutes. Incredibly, he was allowed to continue briefly before leaving the field on a stretcher.

PA news agency understands that FIFA has been in daily contact with the Iranian FA since the injury and told them they should follow the concussion protocol and not allow Beiranvand to play.

Iran’s national team doctor has the final say but FIFA is taking the matter extremely seriously and has stressed to the federation in the strongest terms that he must not play.

Brain injury charity Headway said it was “a complete disgrace” that Beiranvand were allowed to play England.
