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:
Portugal is going through to the Knockout Stage,stop confusing yourself #IRNPOR

#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.

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

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
