FIFA World Cup: Matchday 5 results and reaction in Qatar

Wales face Iran in Group B of the World Cup in Qatar. Wales earned a 1-1 draw against the United States in their first World Cup match in 64 years as Gareth Bale’s penalty capped a spectacular second-half response.

The introduction of Kieffer Moore has helped turn the tide and give Wales a chance to qualify from Group B, but the result they get against Iran could be more decisive for their hopes.

Iran were beaten 6-2 by England in their opening match, in which their players failed to sing the national anthem in support of protesters in the country, and would be virtually knocked out of the game. the World Cup if they lost to Wales. Rob Page’s side will face England in their final group stage game, reinforcing the importance of their clash against Iran at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium.

Bale will become Wales’ best ever appearance when he earns his 110th cap and it would only be fitting for the country’s captain and talisman to produce another big moment on the international stage.

Wales 0-0 Iran

26 mins: Kieffer Moore throws another long ball to Neco Williams on the left wing who tries to get upfield. He is caught by Iranian right-back Ramin Rezaeian who knocks him out of the game with a heavy tackle.

Williams runs the shot but this one is going to sting for a while.

WITHOUT ANY GOAL! Wales 0-0 Iran

16 minutes: forbidden! VAR come to the rescue for Wales as Gholizadeh swings wide offside before Azmoun gives him the ball.

Wales has a reprieve! They need to turn it back on now.

OBJECTIVE! Wales 0-1 Iran (Gholizadeh, 15′)⚽️

15 minutes: Wales are in trouble now! A bad cross pass from Conor Roberts gives the ball to Sardar Azmoun who takes it away from the nearest defender and enters the box.

He has Ali Gholizadeh by his side and after moving around Joe Rodon he places the ball for a tap in. Iran takes the lead!

Or do they? A VAR check is in progress…

Wales 0-0 Iran

14 mins: Kieffer Moore was hit in the face after that effort as he landed on the Iranian keeper’s boot.

The Welsh striker needs control, but he can go on. It would be a blow if he had to leave the pitch so soon.

Wales 0-0 Iran

12 minutes: SAVE! This was the opportunity for Wales!

They work the ball brilliantly down the pitch before a change of play sends the ball to Conor Roberts on the right wing. Roberts whips a fastball into the penalty area and Kieffer Moore leaps towards her.

He recovers a good part of the ball as he tests a volley towards the goal but it is directly on Hossein Hosseini who manages to clear it!

Wales 0-0 Iran

9 mins: Azmoun once again shows his worth outside the Wales penalty area. His ball control is excellent and he holds off defenders before setting up Mehdi Taremi for a shot from distance.

The forward strikes well enough but Wayne Hennessey gets solidly behind the shot and clings to the ball.

Wales 0-0 Iran

6 mins: Sardar Azmoun could offer Iran an extra dimension at the top today after coming off the bench late against England. He collects a ball in midfield and is allowed to turn towards goal.

Azmoun slips it onto the left wing where Milad Mohammadi dashes forward. The left-back loops a teasing cross down the middle but Wales manage to clear it.

Wales 0-0 Iran

3 mins: Ehasn Hajsafi is fouled as the ball goes down in midfield and Iran’s Saeed Ezatolahi delivers a quick free kick down the left wing. Iran then fail to capitalize on quick play as a pass into the penalty area rolls safely out of play.

Chance! A long ball down the field comes to Kieffer Moore who wins the air ball and nods it for Harry Wilson’s run behind. Wilson takes it off before slipping the ball to Neco Williams.

Williams checks to the right, then strings in a curling effort just over the far corner!
