Asian giants Iran struck late to secure all three points vs Morocco in a Group B match of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Sochi, Russia on Friday. The game ended goalless at half-time and looked destined to end the same way. However, an own goal from Aziz Bouhaddouz saw the Asian team run away with all three points. Having first played at the FIFA World Cup in 1978, Iran have made three appearances since then -- 1998, 2006 and 2014. However, they have never progressed beyond the group stages, managing only a lone win, against bitter rivals US in 1998. Morocco have also qualified for the World Cup after a gap of 20 years.
