#TeamMelli vs. Argentina: The Highlights

The game ended 1-0 in favor of Argentina — but Team Melli played their hearts out with all odds against them.

This was a must-watch game.

Again, we asked our joonies to send us photos of their team spirit and they didn’t disappoint.

We were all celebrating Team Melli around the world.

One word: defense.

They are now the top defending team, according to FIFA.


two words: shady ref.

But Team Melli maintained their sportsmanship.

Because they’re awesome.

Even after this happened.


But we’re in awe of Team Melli.

They defended against one of the best football players in the world (what a Messi). He couldn’t get one goal in till the 90th minute.

That’s enough cause for celebration. And Iranians everywhere wore their pride out loud.

They were screaming in the streets of Iran.

The face paint was on point.

    Iran pissed me off in the world cup against Argentina. You hold them off an entire 90 minutes AND THEN you let them score a goal? WTF! I was very disappointed :/
