However, Iran snatched the victory in stoppage time with Aziz Bouhaddouz netting an own goal following a teasing cross at the near post.

Iran began their FIFA World Cup 2018 campaign on winning note, beating Morocco 1-0 to collect full points in a Group B match at St Petersburg on Friday.

U.S. sanctions mean that, as a United States company, Nike can not supply shoes to players in the Iranian National team at this time.

Morocco started quickly again as play restarted, but Iran regained control of the match through forceful means, racking up a yellow card just two minutes into the half.

As a result of today's victory, Iran picked up a crucial three points which now puts them atop the standings in Group B, pending the result of today's much anticipated matchup between powerhouses Spain and Portugal.
