Iran wins a freekick and Hajsafi tries to go deep, but fails to find the right man.
Hosseini has already faced a daunting opponent in Qatar, taking over when Beiranvand was stretchered off in the first half of the tournament-opening loss on Monday before England had opened the scoring. Beiranvand was allowed to continue playing by Iran’s training staff after a collision with a teammate, but later collapsed to the field and was taken to a local hospital. Iran was not commenting on his status, except to say that he had a nose injury, he was back with the team and he had undergone tests. The injury called attention to FIFA’s concussion protocol. If it is determined that Beiranvand had a concussion, he’d be ruled out under FIFA’s return-to-play rules. Iran head coach Carlos Quieroz was pragmatic following the rout.

Hosseini come out of his line to collect the corner first time. 38’Iran would love to convert its dominance into a goal. Ramsey finds Nico Williams in space and he had a chance to cross the ball in. But his first touch was poor and that was a chance wasted. 34’Ramsey with a freekick from deep, but he fails to put the ball in a dangerous area.

Bale, who played for Major League Soccer’s LAFC this past season, now has 41 goals in 109 international appearances. Bale struggled with injuries and fitness for most of the year, but scored on a header for LAFC in the MLS Cup championship earlier this month. LAFC won on a penalty shootout after a 3-3 draw with Philadelphia. He is not Wales’ only threat. Kieffer Moore, a striker for Bournemouth, could make his first World Cup start. Moore was a second-half sub against the United States and immediately made an impact. “He made a massive difference for us, ” Wales head coach Rob Page said. Iran, which qualified for the last two World Cups, hasn’t ever advanced to the knockout round. And it doesn’t appear the team will go through this year, either.
