Morocco 0-1 Iran: Aziz Bouhaddouz own goal gifts Iran late win

Iran recorded their first win at a World Cup in 20 years courtesy of a 95th-minute own goal which consigned Morocco to a 1-0 defeat in this afternoon’s Group B opener.


It appeared as though two teams who had relied upon their defensive records throughout qualifying had canceled each other out until Aziz Bouhaddouz miscued his headed clearance deep into stoppage time in Saint-Petersberg.

 

It’s difficult not to imagine that with games to come against Portugal and then Spain, their World Cup is already over.
