Iran defeat shouldn’t spoil Wales’ adventure of a lifetime: day six at the World Cup



Wales vs Iran

“Long live Gareth Bale!” chanted the Welsh supporters’ chant, as the tube train drew closer and closer to the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium. Their fans were fewer than those who had made the short trip to the Persian Gulf from Iran, but they were determined to make their voices heard.

On the contrary, it’s not impossible that there were actually more Welsh supporters in Qatar than English supporters – they certainly seemed more visible, anyway. No wonder, given it was their first World Cup since 1958 – nobody wanted to miss it, and they made the most of the trip. As the Bale era draws to a close, qualification for the next tournament remains an unknown.
