FIFA World Cup

Wales v Iran

Maybe it was nerves after a 64-year wait to be back on the World Cup stage that saw Wales struggle to get into their opening game against the USA, and they were perhaps fortunate to go into the break just one goal down. The tactical introduction of Kieffer Moore up front changed the game's course to give Wales a foothold on the match, and in the end Gareth Bale’s late equaliser from the penalty-spot was enough to earn a well-deserved point and send the red wall of travelling Welsh fans into raptures. 

Wales tournament odds: 200/1

Iran’s World Cup campaign could barely have started in worse fashion, firstly losing their first-choice keeper Bieranvand to a concussion injury, and then finding themselves 3-0 down at the break against a rampant England team. A tidy finish from Mehdi Taremi was a rare bright spot, and while his last-gasp second from the penalty spot made it 6-2 at the end, it was a scoreline that flattered Iran more than it did England.

Iran tournament odds: 1000/1

Iran’s climb into the top 20 of the Fifa rankings was built on their defensive resilience, and that will need to be addressed quickly if they are to avoid an early World Cup exit. Both teams will have pencilled this game in as a must-win, and with England still to play, Wales must surely beat the Iranians if they are to stand a realistic chance of escaping the group.
