Iran Goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand suffered a head injury after colliding with a team-mate during the first half of his nation’s game against England in the FIFA World Cup at the Khalifa International stadium in Doha.
Beiranvand — who famously saved a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty at the 2018 World Cup in Russia — sustained a blow to his head following a collision with a team-mate in the 12th minute of the game.
After five minutes of treatment, Beiranvand seemed ready to resume his vigil in the goal, but minutes later told his team-mates he was not well enough to continue.
He left the pitch on a stretcher, clearly suffering concussion.
Beiranvand was replaced by backup goalkeeper Hossein Hosseini, playing his first international game for Iran.
