Iran Goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand Threw The Ball 80 Yards Against Iraq Last Night

It was a night to remember for Iran's Alireza Beiranvand, even if the game was the most boring 0-0 ever.

Iran topped Group D and Iraq finished a worthy second in the Asian Cup, but Beiranvand's incredible, potentially world record throw deservedly grabbed the headlines.

Beiranvand became the first goalkeeper to save a World Cup penalty from a Portuguese player in World Cup history last summer, not to mention that fact that he saved a Cristiano Ronaldo spot-kick, of all people.

But that throw against Iraq last night was something else.

Beiranvand's amazing story also went viral in the summer.
