World Cup Why Iran defeated Wales 2-0 – Jay Jay Okocha. Austin Jay Jay Okocha, a former midfielder for Paris Saint-Germain, maintains that Iran’s 2-0 World Cup victory over Wales on Friday was the result of their superior performance.
Wales, in Okocha’s opinion, never came across as a side that was prepared to sacrifice everything to win, and he added that they were overly defensive and were punished by Iran.
Rouben Cheshmi and Ramin Rezaeian scored late goals to help Iran upset a 10-man Welsh team 2-0.
Okocha said to Supersport, “Yes [there was a late drama] they [Iran] left it late, well deserved as well because in the second half they kept pressing.
They were, in my opinion, the superior squad and were rewarded.
The Welsh side never gave off the impression that they were ready to go out and win the game, however we may claim that Wayne Hennessey’s red card had a part in it.
They received punishment in addition to being exceedingly protective.
