Wales-Iran want to correct the errors of the first game

Wales and Iran want to correct the mistakes of their first match in Group ‘B’ of the Qatar World Cup. On the other hand, Group A hosts Qatar and Senegal will try to break the cycle of losing in the second game.

Iran take on Wales in the first match of the day today. The match will kick off at 4 p.m. Bangladesh time at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium. Before entering the field in this match, both teams know that if they win, it will be possible to take an important step on the way to the knockout stage. Prior to that, Iran were beaten 6-2 by England in their opener on Monday. On the same day, Wales fought back against the United States to draw 1-1. Now, if they beat Iran in their second match, Wales will be a long way to the knockout stage after 64 years after securing a ticket to play in the World Cup main stage.

Even though they got a draw against USA, that point was important ahead of Wales. Coach Robert Page’s side are winless in six straight games. They have only won one of the last 9 games. Meanwhile, Iran, who have been crushed by England, will in no way want to turn against Wales. There are examples of what Iran have proven before under veteran coach Carlos Queiroz. Iran drew with Senegal after beating Uruguay in two friendlies last September.

Both of Santana’s goals against England came off the feet of the team’s top striker, Mehdi Taremi. It’s easy to imagine that Turemi won’t let Wales rest either. Sardar Azmoun, who came on as a substitute against England after recovering from injury, is also giving Iran more confidence. Despite the presence of these two stars, Iran could not score more than two goals in the last 9 matches. This is a place where Queiroz needs to rethink.

Goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand, who suffered a head injury in the first match, is certainly not among Iran’s best XI. As a substitute, Hosseini has the responsibility of managing the goals in this game. Queiroz hesitates to field Azmoun from the start. Queiroz made three half-time changes in the opener. According to Queiroz, Taremi’s first goalscorer Ali Golizadeh could enter the starting line-up.
On the other hand, Wales manager Robert Page must hesitate with the selection of the team before the game against Iran. With the way striker Kiefer Moore has proven himself as a second-half substitute against USA, his place in the starting line-up is pretty much assured.

In this case, Daniel James can go on the bench of substitutes. Harry Wilson can also be left out of the playing XI due to a lack of fitness. Midfielder Joe Allen returned to training ahead of the game against Iran after recovering from a hamstring injury. The Swansea City midfielder has been out since last September through injury. Since arriving in Qatar, Allen has trained on his own, apart from the team. He joined the team last Wednesday. Midfielder Ethan Ampadu is also being watched for an ankle injury. “We’ve learned the lesson,” Page said ahead of the game against Iran. It is important not to lose an entire point in the first game. Several players on our team against USA looked quite tired. That’s why preparing ourselves properly before the game tomorrow (today) is now the main task.

One thing we confirmed in the first game, those who came from the substitutes bench played well. Not to mention Brennan and Kiefer in particular. The whole team has the ability to play in the highest event like the World Cup, that’s my team’s greatest strength. On this day, African champions Senegal will face host country Qatar in the second game of the day at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha. The match will kick off at 7 p.m. Bangladesh time. This game is very important for both teams.

Qatar lost 2-0 to Ecuador in the opening game of the World Cup last Sunday. And the next day, Senegal conceded defeat by the same margin against the Netherlands. After starting the World Cup with a loss in the first game, Qatar and Senegal will aim to break out of the circle of losers by picking up points in the second game.
