Welsh supporters were singing their national anthem in a beautiful voice today as crowds gathered in Qatar ahead of their side’s key World Cup clash with Iran this morning.

Anticipation grew outside Doha’s Ahmad bin Ali Stadium and Corniche Walk Park, with footage showing hundreds of supporters in football gear, proudly waving flags displaying the Welsh red dragon.

Many enthusiastic fans wore the iconic red, yellow and green bucket hats and draped the Welsh flag over buildings and fences. Welsh singer Dafydd Iwan was seen with a guitar and was joined by a choir to lead other fans in the song.

Following their 1-1 draw with the United States on Monday, Wales are aiming for a historic first World Cup victory in 64 years which would take them considerably closer to the group stage. Their last match will be on Tuesday against England.

Temperatures could reach up to 29C when today’s game kicks off at 10am GMT (1pm local time) at the 40,000-seater stadium.

Back home, the eyes of the whole country will be fixed on the game.

Many Welsh schools have canceled lessons to allow pupils to watch captain Gareth Bale and his teammates in action. More than 1,000 schools are expected to take part in ‘Cymru Football Friday’, the BBC reported.

Home fans have taken to social media to show their commitment to their team. A man posted a photo of himself on Twitter wearing a tie over a Welsh football shirt. “Important work meeting at 10 a.m.,” he wrote.
