Iran’s Ali Gholizadeh goal was overturned by an offside call in the 16th minute against Wales.

Half time:

With the match producing zero goals in the first half, this match so far has produced a result that would be very beneficial for the USMNT. If a tie was produced, it would allow the USA to survive a loss to England, especially if there are no goals, which also helps in a potential goal difference.

51′: Off the post not once, but twice!

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

Immediately after, Ali Gholizadeh has a beautiful left-footed shot from just outside the box that hits the left post and the rebound by Sardar Azmoun for Iran is saved by Wales keeper Wayne Hennessey

Somehow it’s still tied!

Iran can’t capitalize on three shot attempts, including two that hit the post.

Iran miss several opportunities to score after producing an unreal triple sequence of shots by Sardar Azmoun and Ali Gholizadeh in the 52nd minute against Wales.

73′: Just a little outside

Iran narrowly misses a right-footed shot from just outside the box by Saeid Ezatolahi as it just rolls in at the left post.

84′: Red card!

VAR upgrades a foul on Wales keeper Wayne Hennessey from a yellow card to a red card and Hennessey is disqualified. Wales will play with 10 men for the remainder of the match.

Keeper Danny Ward has replaced Hennessey in net.

Setting the scene

Iran aim to beat European opposition for the first time at the World Cup. But the anthems brought chills.
