Iran Have Won Their First World Cup Game In 20 Years
Their players aren't even allowed to wear Nike boots and their World Cup kit wasn't even available to purchase but Carlos Queiroz's Iran have just picked up massive World Cup win in the most dramatic fashion.
In the 95th minute, Morocco substitute Aziz Bouhaddouz headed into his own net from a free-kick to give Iran only their second World Cup win in history, and their first for 20 years.
You have to go as far back as 1998 against USA for the last time they tasted victory in the World Cup finals.
Their first win at a #WorldCup in 20 years...
