World Cup PREVIEW | Wales v Iran

Wales and Iran will look to get their first win of the World Cup, when they lock horns with each other on Friday.

Wales, despite a rather dour first half, managed to get a point from their clash against the United States following a decent second half performance. Iran meanwhile, will look to come up with a much better performance than what they did against England, who handed them a 6-2 battering earlier this week.

A loss for Iran could be disastarous for their campaign and it could knock them out of the competition, depending on whether England beat the United States or not.


Team News

Ethan Ampadu is a doubt for Wales as he has a slight ankle injury, but Joe Allen is back in contention to feature as he is back from injury.

As for Iran, their goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand picked up a serious head injury against England and he is likely to replaced by Hossein Hosseini tomorrow.
