A stoppage-time own goal from substitute Aziz Bouhaddouz gave Iran a dramatic 1-0 win over Morocco in their World Cup Group B opener on Friday. The Iranians, who had not won a World Cup game since their victory over the United States in 1998, celebrated as if they had won the tournament but they now have a chance in a group where they must now face favourites Spain and Portugal.

Only Goal - Aziz Bouhaddouz (own goal) - 90+5 Minute
After a goalless 90 minutes of football, the match header into injury time, where the official added six minutes. In the penultimate minute of extra time, Iran left back Ehsan Hajsafi whipped in a free kick and Bouhaddouz launched himself at the ball, flashing a header past his own keeper Munir Mohamedi.
