Fans left furious by World Cup coverage while Iran goalkeeper in agony on ground

World Cup viewers have been left furious by the continued replays of the sickening head injury suffered by Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand against England.

Beiranvand was left clutching his head with blood pouring from his nose after he collided with defender Majid Hosseini early in the first-half – which led to lengthy medical attention.

With Beiranvand trying to carry on before eventually being stretchered off, BBC Sport showed several replays during the 14 minutes in which the game was paused.

A third posted: "They keep showing the clip and it’s like ffs stop. Farcical that they kept him on."

With a fourth concluding: "Stop showing it you f***ing t**ts."

BBC Sport pundit Jermaine Jenas expressed his fury at the way the injury was reacted to by the Iran staff, saying: "If Beiranvand has to miss 10 days for his health and his safety, then so be it.

"That's why these protocols are in place.

"I don't see how him carrying on is right. This is ridiculous. It's almost as if he's been forced to carry on here.

"It's 2022 and we are having so many discussions about concussion protocols and how it can lead to dementia. This is not ok."

On the pitch, Jude Bellingham opened the scoring with a fine header before Bukayo Saka fired home and Raheem Sterling prodded home a third.
