Iran stunned European giants Wales with a 2-0 win to cap off a dominant performance. 

This is the third victory for an Asian team at the FIFA World Cup, where a record six Asian countries are playing. 

This win for Iran is a stark contrast to the country's 6-2 loss to England.

It also moved the country to the second place on the table, and they will keep the spot if England beat USA in the night fixture.

The win comes after two of the six previous Asian teams also beat former World Cup champions. 

First Saudi Arabia came back from behind to beat Lionel Messi's Argentina in what is touted as the shock of the tournament. 

Then Japan also secured a 2-1 victory in a similar fashion as they condemned Germany to a 2-1 defeat. 

If these three teams get a positive result, then all of them will qualify for the Round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup 2022.
