Iran goalkeeper Ali Beiranvand is set to miss the World Cup game against Wales with a concussion, giving likely substitute Hossein Hosseini a huge task against star Gareth Bale. Iran, bottom of Group B after a 6-2 defeat by England, play Wales at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium on Friday.
Hosseini was already facing a formidable opponent in Qatar when he came on after Beiranvand was sent off in the first half of the tournament’s opening defeat on Monday, before England had scored the opening goal. Beiranvand was allowed to continue playing after colliding with a teammate from the Iranian coaching staff, but later collapsed on the field and was taken to a local hospital.
Iran had only said that Beiranvand had a nose injury and that the goalkeeper was back with the team on Tuesday wearing a mask. However, Beiravnand was diagnosed with a concussion, so he would be disqualified from the organizing panel’s return-to-play measures. Iran’s head coach Carlos Quieroz confirmed at a pre-match press conference that Beiranvand would not play.
The manager said defending would be a whole team effort without naming his starter specifically for Wales. “It’s a medical protocol that we have to respect,” Quieroz said. “He won’t play tomorrow, but he will be ready for the next game.”
In response to the FAW, FIFA has confirmed that fans wearing rainbow wall bucket hats and rainbow flags will be allowed into the stadium @cymru‘s game against Iran on Friday.
Bale converted a penalty in the 82nd minute to give Wales a 1-1 draw with the United States in their opening game. The tie put Wales a point in their first World Cup game since 1958 and a knockout chance within reach. Bale, who played for Major League Soccer’s LAFC last season, has now scored 41 goals in 109 caps.
Bale has struggled with injuries and fitness for most of the year but scored in a header for LAFC in the MLS Cup championship earlier this month. LAFC won on penalties after a 3-3 draw against Philadelphia.
