The best jokes from Iran 1-1 Portugal after VAR farce in last of the Group B games

Computer system takes centre stage once again.

Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty after VAR use, but can relax with the jokes from Iran 1-1 Portugal as his side are through to the last 16 at Russia 2018

Portugal qualified for the last 16 of the World Cup despite only drawing 1-1 with Iran in Mordovia on Monday night and Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty along the way.

Ricardo Quaresma opened the scoring for the Portuguese on the stroke of half time, but they were unable to add to their lead in a game littered with controversial VAR calls.

Karim Ansarifard equalised from the penalty spot following a decision from the VAR system in stoppage time, before Mehdi Taremi hit the side netting soon after.

Had he scored, Iran would have finished top of Group B but, as it is, Portugal finish second and the Iranians make an emotional exit.

These were the best jokes from Iran 1-1 Portugal at Russia 2018:

#IRNPOR The Iranian keeper is a secret vampire judging by the way he doesn't deal very well with crosses.

Ronaldo missing that penalty is the best gift Messi could wish for on his 31st birthday.

Happy Birthday Messi.#IRNPOR #WorldCup

This game reminds me of when Mrs Allen lost control of our class after Danny Marsh threw a chair out of the 7B window and everyone went feral. #IRNPOR

I think it’s broken #IRNPOR

Made a brew, mowed the lawn, baked a cake, watered the plants, ran a bath, read an entire book and all in the time it took VAR to come up with that Iranian penalty decision. #IRNPOR #WorldCup

Odd moment in #IRNPOR as the Portuguese sub gets a pep talk from the Iranian coach (who is of course Portuguese)! pic.twitter.com/32SnEMC3N9

Cristiano Ronaldo purposely missed his penalty just so he could become the first Portuguese player to miss a penalty in the World Cup history. Man just loves to set new records yo. #IRNPOR
