Iran vs. Mexico

Some say the better team won today. The rest of us say football is unpredictable and Iran just got unlucky. But there is still hope because despite the fact that Iran's coach (who is resigning after the World Cup) has seen his day (his inadequate management skills were on display today when, after 2 early subs by Mexico in the second half totally turned the game around he still failed to sub till close to the end of the second half when it was too late) the team has some strong key players (one of which, Zandi, didn't even play today because of an injury) and truly has a chance for a win, if not a second-round advancement.

Besides, as Javad Nekounam demonstrates, there's always something to look forward to when Iran plays....
