Another added-time winner sealed a first World Cup finals win for Iran in twenty years on Friday while facing increasing sanctions from the international community.
The Moroccans were defeated 0-1 in Saint Petersburg thanks to a 90th minute own goal from forward Aziz Bouhaddouz following a late corner.
These were the best of the jokes from Morocco 0-1 Iran, the first Group B game of Russia 2018:
Every time I see Iran, it reminds me of the time my Nan's dog chased me down the street.

The World Cup is truly special you get Suarez dropping an absolute stinker and then Amrabat dropping flip flaps like he’s Ronaldo in 08 #MARIRN
