During this time period, Wales only fielded a team of 10 players. As a result of a player receiving a red card during the encounter, Wales ended up playing with one less player.

Iran, on the other hand, capitalized on the opportunities they were given and scored goals, which allowed them to win the match.

It was a glorious day for Iran and their supporters as they emerged victorious in the match at the game’s conclusion, and the stadium was packed with supporters of both teams. On the other hand, Wales and their fans were in a great deal of distress due to the fact that their team had lost the game, and the fans left the stadium with a great deal of disappointment.
Iran was responsible for both of this match’s goals, giving them a total of two for the contest. In the first half of play, neither team was able to find the back of the net. Although Wales gave it their all in an attempt to score goals, they were unable to find a way through Iran’s defense. Iran competed quite well in this match, and they were able to equal the level of play displayed by Wales. The score was knotted up at zero apiece after the first period.
In the second half, both teams made numerous attempts to score goals, but they were unable to do so due to a lack of scoring opportunities. At the 86th minute of the match, Wayne Hennessey, the goalkeeper for Wales, received a red card and was subsequently ejected from the field. Mehdi Taremi, a player for Iran, was the victim of a foul committed by him outside of the penalty box. As soon as the referee realized what had happened, he showed a red card to the offending player. The fact that Wales only had 10 players available for this game was a significant disadvantage for them, and it was the primary reason that Iran was able to defeat them and win the game. After ninety minutes had passed without a goal being scored, the score was still 0-0.
Rouzbeh Cheshmi scored the first goal for Iran after the first 90 minutes of the match, which was when the extra time began at the 90+8 minute mark.
