Surprises that can make the heart beat faster continue to occur on the 2022 World Cup stage . This time, the highlight was the performance of participants from Asia.
How could it not be, only Qatar is still classified as mble. The host of the 2022 World Cup failed to look good, especially when he met Ecuador and is currently struggling against Senegal.
Four other countries demonstrated outstanding training capacities and results. One that has yet to taste victory is South Korea, after they were held to a goalless draw against Uruguay.
Three other countries have tasted the sweetness of victory and at the same time made extraordinary surprises. Saudi Arabia became the first, after overthrowing Argentina with a score of 2-1.
Then, it was the turn of the Japanese national team to destroy the world giant from Europe, the German national team. Two goals from Ritsu Doan (75′) and Takuma Asano (83′) were the perfect answer after the Japanese goal conceded via Ilkay Gundogan’s penalty in the 33rd minute.
Well, tonight, the Iranian national team became the next surprise maker. They overthrew the representatives of Europe, who are also neighbors of England, Wales. Competed at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium, in the city of Al Rayyan, Iran won with a score of 2-0.
Two goals from Carlos Queiroz’s squad were born via the actions of Roozbeh Cheshmi (90’+8′) and Ramin Rezaeian (90’+11′). It is not without reason that Iran managed to win its first victory at the 2022 World Cup.
One of the initial causes was a red card from the referee from Guatemala, Mario Escobar, to goalkeeper Wayne Hennesey. The Court Judge thought the Nottingham Forest keeper used a ‘hard foul’ when blocking Mehdi Taremi’s movement.
Initially, the referee only gave a yellow card after Hennesey lunged at Mehdi Taremi’s movement with his feet. However, after seeing the VAR replay, Mario Escobar drew a yellow card, and punished Hennesey with a red card.
Superior number of players makes Iranian players rampant. As a result, the substitute goalkeeper, Danny Ward had to collect the ball twice from inside the net.
A 0-2 defeat to Iran left Wales in the protruding position of the 2022 World Cup Group B standings. Now, Gareth Bale et al can only wait for the results of England vs. the US, to see if there is a possibility of qualifying or not from the tough competition in this group.
