Fifa World Cup: Day Five Results and Reaction in Qatar

Wales will face Iran in Group B of the World Cup in Qatar. Wales earned a 1-1 draw against the USA in their first World Cup match in 64 years as Gareth Bale’s penalty capped off a dramatic second-half fightback.

The introduction of Kieffer Moore helped turn the game around and gave Wales a chance to qualify for Group B, but the result they get against Iran may be more decisive for their hopes.

Iran were thrashed 6-2 by England in their opening game, in which their players failed to sing the national anthem in support of protesters in the country, and would be virtually banned from the World Cup if they lose to Wales. Rob Page’s side will face England in their final group stage match, adding even more importance to their clash against Iran at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium.

Bale will become Wales’ all-time leading performance when he wins his 110th cap and it would be fitting if the country’s captain and talisman create another big moment on the international stage.

Wales 0-0 Iran

6 min: Sardar Azmoun could give Iran an extra dimension at the top today after coming off the bench late against England. He catches a ball in midfield and is allowed to turn towards goal.

Azmoun slides it to the left wing where Milad Mohammadi bursts forward. The left-back curls a teasing cross into the centre, but Wales manages to clear it.

Wales 0-0 Iran

3 min: Ehasn Hajsafi gets fouled as the ball is dinked into midfield and Iran’s Saeed Ezatolahi floats a quick free-kick to the left wing. Iran then fails to take advantage of the quick play as a pass in the penalty area safely rolls out of play.

Opportunity! A long ball upfield comes to Kieffer Moore, who wins the air ball and nods for Harry Wilson’s behind. Wilson takes it down before sliding the ball to Neco Williams.

Williams checks to the right, then snares a curling attempt just over the far top corner!

Gareth Bale urges schools in Wales to screen Iran clash as ‘mini history lesson’

The PA news agency revealed earlier this month that children had been given the green light to support Robert Page’s side.

The Welsh government has left it to individual schools to decide whether children can watch the game, and Bale wants as many of them as possible to do so.

Neco Williams praised for ‘great courage and bravery’ after grandfather’s death

Williams’ grandfather passed away on Sunday and the Nottingham Forest full-back shared the sad news on social media after playing in Wales’ 1-1 draw against the United States.

“Yesterday was the hardest news I’ve ever experienced and that was listening to my mom tell me my grandpa passed away last night,” Williams wrote Monday night, dedicating the game and pointing to his late grandfather.

“Going from crying all day to the start of a World Cup match was extremely tough, but I got through it thanks to the support of my teammates and family.”
