Bale and Wales want to take a big step towards the round of 16


Wales-Iran this Friday in group B offers a duel between Gareth Balewho made his first World Cup debut scoring a penalty in his team’s 1-1 draw against the United States, and Mehdi Taremi, author of two goals that they did not avoid England’s 6-2 win over Iran. Taremi did not celebrate twice in protest against the repression in his country.

Bale and his Wales want to take a big step towards the round of 16 of this World Cup in Qatar 2022 against Iran this Friday. They will face the team led by Carlos Queiroz, dreaming of turning the page after the defeat suffered against the English.

Bale was ecstatic after his goal: “I show up at important moments and it’s like I’m in heaven”, said the Welsh star, who from a penalty equalized the goal scored by Tim Weah, son of the legendary George Weah, for the United States. Wales are 10 games unbeaten (six wins and four draws).

Mind you, nicknamed the ‘Cardiff Express’, He equaled on Monday the record for caps with Wales held by Chris Gunter (109) and will surpass it if Rob Page, his coach, leaves the Wimbledon defender as he did against the Americans today.

This is the second World Cup Wales have played in its entire history and comes 64 years after the first. The Welsh and Iranians have only met oncein a friendly 44 years ago and the British won 0-1.

Queiroz assured this Thursday that the media has all the rights in the world to inquire about the political situation in Iranbut “they don’t ask the same questions as other countries that may also have political problems.”

Taremi confirmed that “we did not receive pressure” after not singing the anthem on Monday in protest as well. Goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand returned to training after suffering a facial injury against England
