Qatar 2022 World Cup | Thunderclap: Wales beaten by Iran (0-2)

A historic success and Iran retains its hopes of qualification. Team melli reacted with pride after the slap inflicted by England (2-6) during the first day. The Iranians won their third World Cup success in their history on Friday against Wales (0-2).

Rouzbeh Cheshmi (90th+8) and Ramin Rezaeian (90th+11) ended a success that was built at the very end of the game. First dominating in the game, the Dragons folded under the sharp attacks of the Persians in transition. One of them precipitated the expulsion of Wayne Hennessey, guilty of a dangerous exit on Mehdi Taremi (87th). Thanks to this victory, the Iranians go back to second place in group B, two units ahead of the Welsh, who gradually see the doors of the eighths closing in front of them.

VIDEO – Two posts and a parade in 15 seconds: Wales (one time) miraculously

2 HOURS AGO

For a long time, we seemed to be heading for yet another 0-0. What would be the fifth, already, of this World Cup 2022. The first half, lively but enamelled with technical failures in the last 30 meters on both sides, abounded in this direction. A few occasions nevertheless animated a disputed and balanced first act. If Hossein Hosseini was the first to be called upon on a close range recovery from Kieffer Moore (12th), Ali Gholizadeh saw his goal canceled for an advanced position by his passer, Sardar Azmoun (15th). Mobile but clumsy and heckled by a particularly rough Welsh rearguard, the Bayer Leverkusen striker had another opportunity to open the scoring in the first half, after additional time on a licked service from Saeid Ezatolahi (45th +2).

Hennessey expelled, the turning point of the match

In line with their production before the break, Carlos Queiroz’s men insisted on the rapid transition register. It almost paid off with a huge highlight in favor of Team melli. Azmoun first found the post after a solitary raid (51st), before Gholizadeh saw his curled shot die on the upright (52nd). Two posts that sound like a scathing warning addressed to a Welsh defense that is often running out of steam. It was not necessarily better in attack, where Gareth Bale was quite discreet despite an attempt on target (67th).

Little by little, the chances followed one another on the Iranian side, with this strike from Saeid Ezatolahi deflected in extremis (73rd) by an impeccable Wayne Hennessey until the turn of the game. Guilty of a completely failed early exit, all far from his surface, on Mehdi Taremi, the Dragons doorman was expelled after review of the VAR (87th). A twist of fate that will reinforce the wait-and-see approach of the Welsh, determined to keep the draw, but also motivate the overexcited Persians.

The first thrill of the epilogue is signed Mehdi Torabi (89th) and, despite the excess of haste in the decision-making of the Iranians, the deliverance came at the end of additional time. While he inherits the leather following a bad dismissal from Joe Allen, Rouzbeh Cheshmi fired a dry shot lodged in the side net of Danny Ward, who came into play to replace Hennessey (90th + 8, 0-1) . Three minutes later, it was Ramin Rezaeian who, with a subtle ladle, went to deceive Ward and offer a major success to Iran.

This victory allows him to move up to second place in Group B, pending the result of the match between England and the United States this evening (8 p.m.). United States whom he will face next Tuesday (8 p.m.) in what could well look like a final for qualification.
