DOHA -- The heat of the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in the desert outside of Al Rayyan saw effort, sweat, tension and late, and late drama as Iran beat Wales 2-0 on Friday to keep their World Cup hopes alive.

It looked as if 10-man Wales was going to cling on for a heroic draw after goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey was sent off in the 86th minute, but in the 99th minute, Rouzbeh Cheshmi broke Welsh hearts with a 25-yard shot into the far corner of the net.
