We have our first red card for this World Cup 2022 and it was not done in half measures. In the 84th minute of the second Group B match between Wales and Iran, with both teams heading for a sad 0-0 draw, the Welsh goalkeeper decided to add some salt to the meeting. On a long pass from the Iranian defense to Medhi Taremi, FC Porto striker Nottingham Forrest goalkeeper went very far from his cages.

The only problem is, the Welsh doorman arrives quite late with the ball and decides to start by jumping with his foot forward to take the ball. But it’s too late, Taremi pushes the ball away with his toe and headbutts Wayne Hennessy with a forward knee. Impressive shock. However, the arbiter of the meeting will first remove the yellow card, in front of completely astonished Iranians, including Alireza Jahanbakhsh.

Iran will seek victory in 11 against 10

Mario Alberto Escobar Toca, called up very quickly by VAR, will no doubt change his mind and issue a red card, the first in this World Cup 2022. This is only the third red card received by a goalkeeper in World Cup history. South African goalkeeper Itumeleng Khun against Uruguay in 2010 and Gianluca Paluca for Italy against Norway in 1994 have already achieved similar results.

The red card allowed Iran to take the lead. Ten minutes later, outnumbered 11 to 10, Carlos Queiroz’s side took the lead thanks to a powerful shot from Ruzbeh Cesmi that hit the side net of Danny Ward, who had just entered the game at Hennessy Square. At the same time, Ramin Rezayan, the right-back of Iran, came to the conclusion that the extreme victory of his people, in a well-executed counterattack (2-0).
