Glad I tuned in a few minutes early for the Welsh Anthem.

FYI: Peacock Premium is offering an extended "introductory discount" for Black Friday: $0.99 a month for the first year w/code SAVEBIG.  Included is Spanish-language (Telemundo?) live matches for the World Cup.

Both teams have been sitting back and trying to play on the counter attack.
See if either team tries to play some possession and control the game.
 
2022-11-25 5:03:56 AM  
FS1 commentators are going on about how hot it is but according to teh googles its ~ 85F. Thats sweater weather in Sacramento.
 
2022-11-25 5:06:44 AM  
We don't usually play football in the summer though, so players aren't used to playing in hot conditions.
 
2022-11-25 5:08:54 AM  
This is 100% the opposite of the Swiss/Camaroon game. Lots of energy.
 
2022-11-25 5:10:40 AM  
Both teams really need a win if they want to have much of a chance of advancing.
 
2022-11-25 5:10:51 AM  
I'm surprised most Welsh fans haven't spontaneously combusted from being out in the sun for so long in November.
 
2022-11-25 5:12:45 AM  
Moore finds himself with the entire goal in front of him, decides to aim for the keeper
 
2022-11-25 5:13:31 AM  
Welsh tries to score, falls on his ass.
 
2022-11-25 5:15:54 AM  
Iran score... VAR coming up
 
2022-11-25 5:16:15 AM  
wtf
 
2022-11-25 5:16:34 AM  
bye bye goal
 
2022-11-25 5:16:59 AM  
no goal for you
 
2022-11-25 5:17:21 AM  
VAR takes away the opening goal for Iran.
Offside.
 
2022-11-25 5:17:26 AM  
offside

ecor1: Welsh tries to score, falls on his ass.


Welsh tries to goalkeep, falls on his ass.

Fortunately it was offsides.
 
2022-11-25 5:19:56 AM  
I think I'd want the offside rule to no longer apply when the pass comes from inside the box
 
2022-11-25 5:29:04 AM  
Is there something about Neco Williams that makes his opponents try to murder him every time he makes a run?
Two hard tackles already. Americans also tried it four days ago.

He has a punchable face.

Feels like the ref is on the "let them play" side of things, and that Iran's realized this and is taking advantage of it.
 
2022-11-25 5:35:04 AM  
Taking your baby to a Wales game is a great way of making sure he grows up hating football
 
2022-11-25 5:35:14 AM  
They brought a baby? To Qatar?

Maybe they just bought it there.

\ bought
\\ not brought, bought
\\\ Qatar sucks, FIFA licks Qatar's bunghole

It's actually a cunningly disguised flask of vodka

For the hot parts of the USA that isn't that bad, for Wales 30C is a heat wave.
 
2022-11-25 6:12:56 AM  
Doink, off the post.
And now a header off the crossbar and back to the keeper.
Golden chances for Iran.
 
2022-11-25 6:12:59 AM  
That was a decent try.
 
2022-11-25 6:13:19 AM  
Yikes! Iran hit both posts
 
2022-11-25 6:14:11 AM  
Goalposts coming up huge for Wales

I dunno, if that trophy had been made of chocolate the kid would probably grow up loving even Gibraltar games...

Anyone keeping track of the most shots into the post at a Cup game?  Or if anyone's collected the set... (left post, right post, crossbar, both ends of the pitch)

Robert Page needs to pull Ampadu. Couple of dumb errors in midfield resulting in good chances for Iran.

If the Welsh really see this game as a must-win, they're not showing it at the moment.
 
2022-11-25 6:35:11 AM  
Iran deserves this match.

At least in South Africa everybody picked one note and stuck with it...
 
2022-11-25 6:42:10 AM  
I'm not sure how much I care about this game, beyond a Welsh loss gives the US a better chance at going through. That said, what a POS game. I guess Iran is playing decently enough. But, meh.
 
2022-11-25 6:45:43 AM  
Could've been red there.
 
2022-11-25 6:46:01 AM  
The Iranian striker looks like he could do with a brandy.
 
2022-11-25 6:46:12 AM  
I think this ref is in a little over his head. And I very disagree with their yellow/red analysis. It deserved a red.
 
2022-11-25 6:47:10 AM  
VAR Upgrades the card to red.
 
2022-11-25 6:47:45 AM  
Well, they got the card right eventually. That was just a stupid challenge.
 
2022-11-25 6:48:41 AM  
Yeah, clear red for me. Keeper just straight up Schumacher'ed him.
 
2022-11-25 6:49:13 AM  
Is that the first straight red card of the tournament?
 
2022-11-25 6:50:30 AM  

LucklessWonder: Is that the first straight red card of the tournament?


Believe so.  And well deserved.   Reckless play by the keeper.
 
2022-11-25 6:52:09 AM  

LucklessWonder: Is that the first straight red card of the tournament?


First red of any kind, I gather.  Nine minutes to make it interesting...
 
2022-11-25 6:54:31 AM  
*checks Welsh squad to see who will be in goal against England*

I would think a tie would be better. If they tie, the US could get through with a narrow England loss and Iran tie.
 
2022-11-25 6:55:15 AM  
Just waking up. Oh wow Iran.
 
2022-11-25 6:57:01 AM  

HeathenHealer: Just waking up. Oh wow Iran.


The same can be said of and/or by the remaining Welsh players...
