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.
