Wales' World Cup dream is over after two injury time goals from Iran condemned them to a 2-0 defeat.

Goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey was sent off for a reckless challenge in a second half that also saw Iran strike the both posts within seconds before taking a deserved three points.

Wales were lucky not to be behind after struggling in the first half against Iran and VAR intervened to chalk off a goal against them for offside early in the game.

Shortly after half-time it was hearts in mouth again for Wales as Iran struck both posts within seconds of each other.

Iran's Sardar Azmoun smacked one post from close range before Ali Gholizadeh curled an effort from outside the box against the other.

Wales then had goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey shown a straight red card with five minutes of normal time remaining as he rushed off his line to intercept a long pass.

Hennessey brought down striker Mehdi Taremi and received a red card for dangerous play after the incident went to the VAR officials.

There was little complaint from the Welsh players, with Hennessey's knee close to Taremi's head.
