Ali Gholizadeh’s Iranian goal was canceled out against Wales in the 16th minute for offside.


Since the game ended in zero goals in the first half, this game has so far produced a result that would be very favorable for the USMNT. If a draw were to come, it would allow the United States to survive a loss to England, especially if there are no goals to also aid in a potential goal difference tiebreak.

51′: Not once off the post, but twice!

Iran is so close again! Sardar Azmoun hits the right post with a right footed shot from the right side of the box on a through ball after a quick break.

Immediately after, Ali Gholizadeh has a superb left footed shot from just outside the box which hits the left post and Sardar Azmoun’s rebound header for Iran is saved by Wales keeper Wayne Hennessey

Somehow it’s still tied!

Iran cannot take advantage of three shot attempts, two of which hit the post.

Iran misses several chances to score after an unreal series of triple shots by Sardar Azmoun and Ali Gholizadeh in the 52nd minute against Wales.
