Wales are on the brink of World Cup elimination after a devastating 2-0 defeat to Iran in their Group B clash.

It was a tense 90 minutes between the two sides that appeared to be heading for a 0-0 draw.

Wales had to survive the final four minutes of normal time with 10 men as Danny Ward came on.

Rob Page’s side just couldn’t hold out as Rousbeh Cheshmi’s strike gave Iran the lead in the 90+8th minute before Ramin Rezaeian finished the Welsh off just three minutes later.

The win?

That’s one way to annoy a group of fans. Telling them they had just won when they had lost in devastating circumstances.

Then, when he did ask about the loss, one Wales fan summed it up with one explicit word.

While you have to feel sorry for Alistair’s slip of the tongue, it did make fantastic TV for us.

After the match, Wales star man Gareth Bale admitted that it’s going to be tough for them to reach the last-16 now.

“It’s gutting – there’s no other way to say it,” Bale said.

“We fought till the end but it’s difficult when you go down to 10 men in the World Cup against good teams.
