Wales fans were left in tears on Friday as hundreds of supporters missed their World Cup game against Iran due to a glitch on their entry cards.

Rob Page's side were beaten 2-0 by Iran in their second group stage match, conceding twice in stoppage time after Wayne Hennessey was sent off with four minutes left.

As a result, large groups of supporters were turned away at Dubai airport as they attempted to fly into Qatar for the match.
