Iran won its first game of the 2018 World Cup with a triumphant 1-0 victory against Morocco tonight. An own goal by a Moroccan defender in the 93rd minute propelled Team Melli to first place in Group B, after Portugal and Spain tied 3-3.
Iran’s largely defensive tactic paid off. But it’s their offense that will need some work as they prepare next to take on Spain in Game 2 of group play.
