Wales vs Iran LIVE: 2022 World Cup latest score, goals and updates amid off-pitch controversy

FIFA World Cup: Results and reaction on day five in Qatar

Wales will face Iran in Group B of the World Cup in Qatar. Wales drew 1-1 with the USA in their first World Cup match for 64 years when a Gareth Bale penalty ended a dramatic second-half fight.

The introduction of Kieffer Moore helped turn the tide of the match and gave Wales a chance to progress from Group B, but the result they achieved against Iran may be more decisive for their hopes.

Iran were beaten by England 6–2 in the opening match where their players failed to sing the national anthem as a show of support for the country’s protesters and would have been almost eliminated from the World Cup if they had lost to Wales. Rob Page’s side will face England in the final match of the group stage, adding to the importance of the clash with Iran at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium.

Bale will become Wales’ all-time top cap when he wins his 110th cap and it would be good to see the country’s captain and talisman make another big international moment.

Wales 0-0 Iran

51 mins: Kieffer Moore makes a nice diagonal run to the inside right channel as the ball is flipped over the top. He shoves it into his chest and lifts it to the edge of the box before passing it to Conor Roberts on a tab.

Roberts tries to cross but the offside flag eventually goes up against Moore.

Wales 0-0 Iran

48 mins: The first offensive action of the second half comes from Milad Mohammadi, who crosses the box from a deep position. Sardar Azmoun chases him to the touchline on the opposite side of the pitch but can’t keep him in the game.

Luck seems to be with Wales. Ramsey’s blind pass puts Roberts under pressure on the right and he loses possession. Iran wants to throw him into the box quickly, but an unfortunate forward pass sends him straight to Wayne Hennessey in goal.

HT Wales 0-0 Iran

Off the pitch, an Iranian fan had a shirt with Mahsa Amini’s name removed by security.

Mahsa Amini was arrested by the Iranian morality police in September 2022 and reportedly severely beaten while detained and transported to Vozara detention center.

She died in hospital on September 16, and her death sparked anti-government protests across Iran.

A draw is not in favor of either team. Wales in particular must win when they play England in their last group match.

The longer the match goes without a goal, the more nervous the last 15-20 minutes will be.

Halftime: Wales 0-0 Iran

45+4 mins: The whistle sounds for a break. Nothing separates the two teams in a tight first half. Wales were spared the blush after opener Ali Gholizadeh was written off for offside.

As the match progresses, the situation will become more and more tense.

Wales 0-0 Iran

45+3 mins: Chance! Wales are almost caught just before the break. Iran is playing the ball in the last period for the first time in a century and is looking for an opening on the right side of the pitch.

They do not find him, but the ball is deflected to Saeed Ezatolahi, who hits a huge cross to the center. Sardar Azmoun squeezes past his marker but cannot direct the ball towards goal and rebounds off the back post.

Wales 0-0 Iran

45 minutes: There were several injury timeouts and a lot of VAR scrutiny in this half, so a four-minute stoppage was added.

Roberts nods for a cross and passes the ball to Ramsey. He returns him to the wing, where Roberts’ cross is cleared by the first defender.

Wales 0-0 Iran

42 mins: Wales pulled out of Iran as break time approached. They have grown into the game and will hope to use their advantage.

A bird’s-eye pass into the box as Moore and Bale run from behind but both men are offside.
