Wales continue their first World Cup campaign for 64 years this morning when they face Iran at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Qatar.

The Friday morning fixture kicks off at 10am UK time/1pm local time. Many Welsh schools are allowing children to watch the game, while Gareth Bale has issued a plea to all teachers in Wales urging them to show it.Rob Page's men got off to a slow start in their opening game with the United States on Monday, but a second-half penalty from Gareth Bale proved enough to salvage a well-earned point.Bale himself will be raring to go, as he bids to win his 110th cap, which would see him overtake Chris Gunter to become Welsh football's most-capped men's player.

Joe Allen, who missed the draw with the Americans due to injury, has also been declared fit, and may well play some part in this clash.Iran, meanwhile, might well be looking to prove a point, having been thumped 6-2 by Group B favourites England in their opening game.
