Wales will be looking to secure their first win of the 2022 World Cup when they face Iran.

The Dragons snatched a draw in their opening game against the USA on Monday thanks to Gareth Bale’s late penalty and the pressure will be on to claim all three points to boost their hopes of progressing from Group B.


Iran are bidding to bounce back from a 6-2 defeat to England and will look to striker Mehdi Taremi, who netted both goals in the thrashing, to fire them to victory.

Wales v Iran prediction

Mark Lawrenson: Wales have to win here. They were all over the place in the first half against USA but in the second half they were better. The Americans were fit and very physical so it was a good result. I’d say Wales will Win 2-0 against Iran. To be honest with you, to say Iran were awful against England is giving them too much praise.
