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.

The Islamic republic is thought to be the only country in the world that refuses to allow fans to gather in open public spaces for the World Cup, possibly due to opposition to the idea of men and women watching together. They're not against anybody'.

Prior to World Cup 2018, the American shoe company Nike announced it would not be providing equipment to Iranian players due to the US sanctions imposed on Iran.

"The main value of Federation Internationale de Football Association is to put politics apart and this is not what's going on".

Mexican Manuel Rosas was the first to score an own goal in World Cup.

In a group that they are both seen as the outsiders, Morocco and Iran knew they both needed something from Friday's group opener and it was already looking like the spoils would be shared before the unexpected happened.

"My players are down, but we can only blame ourselves", was all Morocco coach Herve Renard could say.
