Iran stuns Wales in Qatar World Cup


Iran, which lost its World Cup opening game 6-2 against England, scored two late goals to clinch its first win in Qatar Friday. The Iranian team dominated the game against Wales, who had goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey sent off with a red card for a foul on Iran striker Mehdi Taremi late in the second half. Rouzbeh Chesmi fired Iran into the lead when his stunning strike evaded Wales substitute keeper Danny Ward in the eighth minute of stoppage time at the end of the second half. With Wales desperately pushing for an equalizer Ramin Rezaeian calmly chipped the ball over Ward three minutes later to complete the win. Wales and Iran are in the same World Cup group as the U.S.A, which faces England at 2 pm ET.
