Iran's Failed Flip Throw In Is The Greatest World Cup Moment Ever

Iran's Failed Flip Throw In Is The Greatest World Cup Moment Ever

Forget Siphiwe Tshabalala's opening goal in the 2010 World Cup or Diana Ross missing a penalty at the 1994 opening ceremony, Cameroon beating Argentina to start the 1990 competition, Zidane walking past the trophy after his red card in 2006 or Andres Iniesta ripping his shirt off eight years ago because the greatest moment in World Cup history has been topped by Iran.

There's a hell of a long list of the best moments that have happened at the World Cup, it could be a goal, a result, a red card or absolutely anything but we've all got a favourite.

However on Wednesday night Iran might have somehow topped the lot in their match against Spain in Group B as they ended up unlucky losers.

In a game where the Asian underdogs were unlucky not to score an equaliser, after one 'goal' was ruled out by the linesman and VAR, it was an errant throw in that is stealing everyone's thoughts.

Late in injury time Milad Mohammadi had the chance to deliver a throw in into the Spain box and looked like he was going to do an elaborate roll into the throw but backed out at the last minute:

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

The two moments that make this whole thing even funnies than it already would have been are the look to the skies to pray for it to work, coupled with kissing the ball, and then the backing out at the end. Delicious.

Despite the loss Iran still aren't out of the competition and should they play like they did on Wednesday against Portugal next week then they'll have a chance of beating them and going through.

Of course if they don't Mohammadi will still forever be remembered for trying a rolling throw-in in injury time with his team behind and in need of a goal, it's just a shame he didn't go through with it.
