*Jubilant Iranian fans poured into the streets of the Iranian capital Tehran and other Iranian cites and towns to celebrate Iran's brilliant performance in front of Argentina with its tight defensive wall.
*Messi rescued Argentina from a dubious result, scoring the winner in injury time to earn La Albiceleste a 1-0 victory over an inspired Iranian side on Saturday at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
In a tense, grinding match, the two-time World Cup champion, Argentina, beat Iran’s national football team 1-0 despite Iran’s 90-minute resistance against the South Americans in a group F match, but superb Iran’s performance was enough for Iranian fans to celebrate the game.
To much surprise the Serbian referee overlooked the Argentinesˈ tackle in the box which brought down Iran’s Ashkan Dejagah.
