The second date of the group stage of the Qatar 2022 World Cup began, Wales faced Iran at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium. It was a victory for the Iranians by two goals to nil in the epilogue of the match.
Both teams had the obligation to win, since the Welsh tied at one goal with the United States, while the Iranians fell 6 goals to 2 against England.
The first half showed an Asian team with a greater role in the search for the goal, but failed to show it on the scoreboard. Although, the VAR annulled Ali Gholizadeh somewhat at 16 ‘.
During the complement the trend of the first part continued, although the Europeans approached the Iranian goal. However, the most outstanding goal moves were made by the Asians with two shots to the crossbar in less than a minute, first it was Sadar Azmoun at 51′ and then Ali Gholizadeh at 52′.
The Iranian insistence had a double reward at the end of the match. First it was at 90+8′, when Roozbeh Cheshmi shot from medium distance and scored the first goal of the match, while at 90+11′, Ramin Rezaeian defined a counterattack in a great way, decreeing the final two-nil.
The match also saw the first red card of Qatar 2022, when Welsh goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey aggressively brought down Taremi when he was going solo towards the goal (86′).
