Iran

Wales and Iran head into their Group B fixture at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium on Friday aware that victory could take them a pivotal step toward qualification for the World Cup knockout stages.

Wales came from behind to earn a deserved share of the spoils against USA earlier in the day after Iran had lost 6-2 to England.

After Iran had lost to England, Wales and the United States knew they needed to defeat their opponents in the second round of group games if they wanted to progress to the knockout stages. Neither side played like they were settling for a draw, but Wales was fortunate to still be in the match at half-time.

In the second half, it was a different story. The Dragons squandered several scoring chances before Gareth Bale scored his first World Cup goal from the penalty spot.

While Wales’ star man was below his influential best, his confident effort from 12 yards allowed Wales to reach the knockout stages if they could defeat Iran in their final game.

Despite Iran’s valiant efforts, they were thoroughly outclassed by England. Carlos Quieroz’s side looked like a shadow of the team that had previously collected a win and a draw from Uruguay and Senegal in September.

To Team Melli’s credit, they never gave up. They scored two consolation goals in the final quarter, the second coming from an extremely debatable penalty decision based on the threshold which had been used previously in the match.

Although Mehdi Taremi’s double highlighted his threat in the attack, Sardar Azmoun’s substitute outing after injury will only encourage Iran ahead of this contest.

Wales Team News

Wales manager Ryan Giggs must decide whether to start with Kieffer Moore, who scored against the U.S., or Daniel James, who was an unused substitute against Panama. Harry Wilson may also be on the bench instead of Ethan Ampadu, who has an ankle injury. Joe Morrell could replace Joe Allen if he decides to play.

Iran Team News

Due to concussion protocols, Iran will be forced to make a change between the sticks against Spain. Hossein Hosseini is likely to take Beiranvand’s place, and Quieroz has the decision to make over whether to start Azmoun from the opening whistle. Although three changes were made at the half on Monday, Quieroz may favor familiarity by starting Azmoun.
