Wales x Will face off this Friday, the 25th, at 7 am (Brasília time), at Al Rayyan Stadium🇧🇷 The clash will be valid for the second round of the group stage of the World Cup 2022 and it is extremely important for teams that still dream of a place in the round of 16.
Wales, coming off a thrilling draw against United States, arrives for the confrontation with morale and hope of achieving a historic classification. Led by GAreth Balescorer of the team’s only goal in the competition, the Welsh are looking for a victory against Iran to reach four points and continue in the fight to advance to the round of 16.
On the other hand, Iran suffered a heavy defeat to England in the first round, by the score of 6 x 2. Therefore, the Iranian team can no longer lose in the competition if they want to qualify for the next phase. A very complicated situation, because, in addition to facing Wales this Friday, the top scorer selection Taremi will still have to confront the United States, which will also fight for a place in the round of 16.
Despite favoritism being pointed out to Wales, due to the more qualified squad and due to the teams’ first presentation, Iran has more tradition in the World Cup than the Europeans. The Iranians have participated in six World Cups, this being the third in a row, but they never made it past the group stage. In contrast, the Welsh reach their second appearance, the first being in 1958, when they were eliminated in the quarterfinals.
With the scenarios exposed, Wales vs Iran will take place this Friday morning, 25th, at 7 am (Brasília time). The clash valid for the group stage of the 2022 World Cup will be broadcast live on TV Globo (open channel), SportTV (channel closed), GE (website) and FIFA+ (streaming service).
