Wales 0 Iran 2: Dragons heartbreak as 99TH-MINUTE stunner leaves World Cup hopes hanging by thread ahead of England game

Wales is on the verge of being eliminated after Iran earned their victory with two goals in stoppage time.

Against Carlos Queiroz’s superior team, who hit both posts and had a goal disallowed by the VAR, Wayne Hennessey’s goal had a lucky escape.

Later on, the seasoned goalkeeper lost his cool and sprinted out of his area, nearly knocking Mehdi Taremi’s head off with a furious challenge.

However, with the ten-man Dragons severely outmatched, substitute Rouzbeh Cheshmi took advantage of Joe Allen’s oversight to score from 20 yards away.

Then, after a brief break, Razmin Rezaeian finished it off with a stylish move to add a second.

The heat and strain caused Wales’ players to pass out, but they knew that their World Cup dream was almost certainly over.
