#TeamMelli vs. Nigeria: The Highlights

The game ended with 0-0, but it was a roller coaster.

For us there were plenty of highlights.

Iroonis all over the world were cheering on #TeamMelli in their game against Nigeria — and people were getting creative.

We asked our Joonies to send us pics of how they were showing their fan pride, and we were not disappointed.

Compiling a list so you don’t have to look anywhere else, now get to scrolling…

One word, Hugs.

  1. there was that glorious moment when ando started providing physiotherapy to the nigerian player on his back, it started off looking so awkward #persiandadsworldwide but was moments later celebrated by the commentator as a shining example of sportsmanship. i can only imagine the dialogue, “no, let me help you, your team physio will take too long to get here.” best.
