    Wales continue their World Cup journey with their second group stage fixture against Iran on Friday morning.

    Wales opened their Qatar 2022 account with a 1-1 draw against the USA on Monday evening, recovering from a sluggish first half to salvage a vital point courtesy of Gareth Bale’s late penalty.
