Two Years Ago, Iran's Milad Mohammadi Attempted 'That' Throw-In At The World Cup

Two Years Ago, Iran's Milad Mohammadi Attempted 'That' Throw-In At The World Cup

If you were a professional footballer, representing your country at the World Cup would be the crowning achievement of your career.

It would be something to tell your grandchildren, especially if you did something utterly ridiculous and funny that catches the attention and admiration of millions watching at home.

This is exactly the route Iranian Milad Mohammadi took in Russia two summers ago.

With time ticking away in their crucial Group B match in Kazan, Mohammadi wound up for a throw in to try to give his side a last chance at equalising against a Spain team that led by a single goal.

He kissed the ball, pointed to the sky, and performed a forward roll before throwing the ball into play.

One admiring twitter user said: "94th minute and you need an equaliser... A roly-poly throw in, you say? WHAT?"

Another said: "Iran with the greatest throw in, in World Cup history."

Milad Mohammadi, we salute you.
