Iran shocks Wales after Wayne Hennessey gets red card: World Cup live updates

After having a goal disallowed by offsides in the first half and having two shots hit the post in quick succession in the second, Iran looked to be out of luck against Wales on Friday. But with hope refreshed after Welsh goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey was sent off late in the match for a rough challenge, Iran finally broke through on Rouzbeh Cheshmi’s laser strike in the 98th minute and added insurance with Ramin Rezaeian’s goal three minutes later.

The result: A rather astounding 2-0 win for Iran that could very well change the fate of Group B.
