World Cup 2022 highlights: Iran pulls away 2-0 after Wales keeper is sent off – FOX Sports
November 25, 2022
The 2022 FIFA World Cup continued on Friday with Iran shutting out Wales 2-0 at Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Qatar. The red card right before stoppage time to Wales keeper Wayne Hennessey gave Iran a man advantage and helped them push across the late goal by Roozbeh Cheshmi and earned Iran its first points of the tournament.
Ali Gholizadeh looked as if he had put Iran ahead for the first time in the tournament, but the goal was ruled out after a VAR review.

Iran’s Ali Gholizadeh goal was overturned by offside call in the 16th minute against Wales.
With the match producing zero goals in the first half, this match has so far produced a result that would be very beneficial for the USMNT. If a tie was produced it would allow the United States to survive a loss to England, especially if there are no goals helping in a potential goal differential tiebreaker as well.

Iran comes so close again! Sardar Azmoun hits the right post with a right-footed shot from the right side of the box after getting a through ball following a fast break.
