Is Wales v Iran on TV? Kickoff time, channel and how to watch the World Cup match

Can Wales claim their first World Cup win in Qatar? They have the chance here as they play against Iran in Group B.

Wales drew 1-1 with the United States in the tournament opener, Gareth Bale’s penalty ensuring Rob Page’s side came from behind to secure a crucial point.

Iran, meanwhile, will want to move on quickly after their 6-2 defeat to England, although they will have some heart from their two goals against the Three Lions when facing the Welsh.

Then, later on Friday, England take on the USA in the other Group B game.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is it?

Wales v Iran is scheduled to kick off at 10am GMT (1pm local time) on Friday, November 25th.

The game will take place at Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan.

How can I watch?

In the UK, the match will be broadcast live on BBC One and also streamed live on the broadcaster’s website and the BBC iPlayer app. S4C will also broadcast the game in Wales.

Ethan Ampadu suffered an ankle problem during Wales’ draw with the United States, while Kieffer Moore is expected to start after his decisive performance off the bench earlier in the week.

For Iran, Alireza Beiranvand was unable to play due to concussion protocols, the goalkeeper having been substituted against England after a clash of heads. Hossein Hosseini, who replaced him, should start in his place.
