He left his family staggering, barely standing. Less than ten minutes into the first Group B match, as England v Iran, Iranian goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand hit his defender Majid Hosseini head-on as he exited from a height in a rather harmless move. After spending a few minutes on the ground with a bloody nose and jersey, the Persepolis goalkeeper gets up and tries to regain his spot on the pitch, still slightly stunned. After a maximum of a minute, he finally asked for a substitution in the 20th minute of the game, completely overwhelmed by the shock. The verdict on his injury was expected.

First, the head of Iranian communications mentioned a broken nose. But at a press conference after the meeting, coach Carlos Queiroz made a much more difficult diagnosis: “According to the information of the doctors and the referee of the meeting, the player’s bleeding could not be stopped. This was due to his broken nose. Unfortunately, the player was unable to continue playing and suffered a serious concussion. »

The Portuguese technician also explained that his player is heading to the hospital “for a deeper examination”. The Iranian coach was also asked about the length of the break, which added 14 minutes, and the player’s willingness to resume play before the final stoppage: “When we were ready to make a substitution, he stopped bleeding, so we thought. he could go on. That’s why there was a delay. There was doubt between a broken nose and a concussion. »
