Wales goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey was awarded the first red card of the 2022 World Cup for a horror challenge on Iran forward Mehdi Taremi.
The 35-year-old had, minutes, earlier made one of the saves of the tournament when he dived low to his left to deny Saeid Ezatolahi but turned villain soon afterwards following a rush of blood to the head.
