Carlos Queiroz has changed five of the team that lost 6-2 to England on Monday. The goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand, who suffered concussion in that match and was briefly allowed to carry on despite not knowing his name, date of birth, nationality or even the last three digits on the back of the card, is replaced in goal by Hossein Hosseini.

That should mean a change of system, from 5-4-1 to what the traditionalists call a four-man back four. Azmoun, who has 41 goals in 66 games for his country, joins Mehdi Taremi (32 in 62) in attack.

Who fancies another ride of the emotional rollercoaster? I’m afraid, if you’re Welsh or Iranian, you don’t have much choice. For different reasons, and in different ways, both countries ran the gamut on Monday. It’ll be no different today.

Let’s start with the football. Iran realistically need at least a draw to have any chance of reaching the last 16; Wales could theoretically lose today and still go through. But even in the unpredictable game of snakes and ladders that is the World Cup group stage, that’s not to be encouraged.

“,”elementId”:”cc2da669-7674-4262-95c5-6f38531a37d2″},{“_type”:”model.dotcomrendering.pageElements.TextBlockElement”,”html”:”

Their target is simple – a first World Cup win since Terry Medwin’s goal beat Hungary in a playoff on 17 June 1958, ideally with yet another who-writes-Gareth-Bale’s-scripts moment. Qualification may come down to goal difference, but it would be hubristic to think of that at this stage. Iran are a better side than their 6-2 defeat to England suggested.

But they also have other things on their mind. Even in this most political of World Cups, Iran’s situation stands out. I won’t editorialise here, and not only because I’m subconsciously terrified of inadvertently saying the wrong thing and being cancelled before a ball has been kicked. It’s a nuanced situation that is difficult to fully understand if you haven’t been following it intently from the start.

The players chose not to sing the national anthem before the England game on Monday, their latest gesture in support of those protesting against the shocking death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody in September. There are fears of reprisals when the tournament is over, but also some confusion as to whether the local celebrations of that defeat on Monday were directed against the state, the team (for ‘insulting’ the anthem) or both.

We’ll come back to all that when the players line up for the anthems. I have to dash off and write some failed zingers for our rebranded daily football email, Football Daily – please su’scribe! – but I’ll be back with team news around an hour before kick off.

Essential occasions

A little bit extra pre-match studying

It is the afternoon rush in Al Rayyan.. As Gabby Logan simply mentioned on BBC protection, bucket hats will turn out to be useful.

“I’ve lots of respect for Iran and their stance with the anthem,” Matt Donnie says. “Ond, dewch onder, Gymru! That is crucial for Alan Wells. He might not have the star high quality of Ramsey or Bale, however he does what nobody else within the squad can do. If he does effectively in the present day Will get run out, and may begin in opposition to England, in order that’s about as constructive as I can hope for.

“I actually like Dan James, however Kiefer Moore modified the sport when he got here on in opposition to the US. He is an honest striker, who has a unprecedented capacity to raise his recreation when enjoying at worldwide degree. . Undoubtedly the precise name to start out it in the present day. Am I rambling? Who is aware of now. I really feel sick. I am spreadsheets, and 10:00 appears so distant. That is Wales, on the World Cooking Cup!

Introduction

Who likes one other journey on the emotional curler coaster? I am afraid, should you’re Welsh or Iranian, you do not have a lot alternative. For various causes, and in several methods, the 2 international locations ran the gamut on Monday. At this time shall be no totally different.

Let’s begin with soccer. Iran want not less than a draw to succeed in the final 16. Wales may theoretically lose in the present day and nonetheless undergo. However even within the unpredictable recreation of snakes and ladders that’s the World Cup’s group stage, that won’t be inspired.

Their purpose is straightforward – a primary World Cup win since Terry Maddon’s purpose to beat Hungary within the play-offs on June 17, 1958, ideally with one other scripted Gareth Bale second. capacity Could also be Come right down to the distinction in objectives, however it could be hubristic to consider it at this stage. Iran are the higher staff after their 6-2 loss to England.

However they produce other issues on their minds. Even on this most political competitors of the World Cup, Iran’s state of affairs is totally different. I will not be editorializing right here, and never simply because I am subconsciously afraid of inadvertently saying the mistaken factor and getting canceled earlier than the ball is even kicked. It is a delicate state of affairs that is arduous to completely perceive if you have not been following it from the start.

The gamers selected to not sing the nationwide anthem earlier than the England recreation on Monday, their newest gesture of assist for these protesting the stunning demise of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody in September. There are fears of reprisals when the event ends, however there may be some confusion about whether or not the native celebrations of Monday’s defeat have been in opposition to the state, the staff (for ‘insulting’ the anthem) or each.

We’ll come again to all of that when the gamers line up for the anthem. I’ve acquired to write down some fail zingers for my rebranded Day by day Soccer e mail, Soccer Day by day – please subscribe! – However I will be again with staff information an hour earlier than kick-off.

Kick 10am GMT, 1pm at Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium.
