Minute Commentary
90' MESSI RESCUES ARGENTINA
For so long it looked like Iran may get something out of this game, but then up popped Lionel Messi to curl a stunning shot into the far corner. The little forward had hardly been in the game, but it is his goal that sends Argentina through to the next round. However, Iran have plenty to be upset about after a stunning performance and they should have had a penalty in the second half. Lone forward Reza Ghoochannejhad ran his heart out and had two chances that were saved well by Sergio Romero. Argentina were largely disappointing and only threatened through set pieces with Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain looking very poor. However, despite all this it is Argentina that progress and with Messi in the team, you have to feel that they have a chance to win this World Cup.
90' FULL TIME
That is the end of the game.
90' GOOAALL!
Heartbreak. Absolute heartbreak for Iran. Lionel Messi picks the ball up and you just know what he is going to do. The forward ducks inside and curls a wonderful shot into the far corner.
89' FINAL FEW MINUTES
Do not adjust your web browser. The score line is still 0-0 and Iran continue to stand firm. Can Argentina find a way through?
86' GREAT SAVE
Chaos in the Iran box, but they eventually clear and set up a counter. Reza Ghoochannejhad races on to a through ball and forces Alireza Haghighi into a fine save. Iran were again so close to taking the lead.
85' IRAN SUBSTITUTION
Ashkan Dejagah has been magnificent and looks exhausted as he is replaced by Alireza Jahanbakhsh.
82' WIDE
Marcos Rojo sees a chance of glory and swings a left footed shot at goal, but it curls away and Iran continue to hold off Argentina.
80' MESSI STRUGGLING
Iran have done so well to close the space around Lionel Messi. The little forward has hardly been given any time on the ball and has failed to link with the strikers time and time again.
76' SUBSTITUTIONS
Masoud Shojaei is replaced by Khosro Heydari for Iran. Argentina also opt for a change with Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain being replaced by Rodrigo Palacio and Ezequiel Lavezzi.
75' GOOD BLOCK
Argentina come again as Iran get caught in possession. Angel Di Maria is the danger man, but his shot is from a tight angle and Alireza Haghighi saves.
73' SO CLOSE
Nervous times for Iran as Angel Di Maria is brought down on the edge of the box. However, Lionel Messi looks off form and sends his shot into the side netting.
71' ARGENTINIAN SUBSTITUTES WARMING UP
Alejandro Sabella has ordered all his substitutes to warm up as he looks on disgusted with his side.
68' BRILLIANT SAVE
This is a fine spell for Iran. Ashkan Dejagah gets across Pablo Zabaleta to head towards goal and it is heading into the top corner until Alireza Haghighi gets a hand to it to flick it over.
66' ARGENTINA RATTLED
Wow, could we be on for an heroic upset? The Argetinian defence look nervous and Ezequiel Garay slices a simple clearance over his own bar. This is enthralling.
63' JUST WIDE
Another glimmer of hope for Iran as a shot takes a wicked deflection and flies just wide. The resulting corner leads to a scramble in the box, but Argentina clear.
59' TERRIBLE CROSS
Argentina continue to labour. Pablo Zabaleta knocks the ball back to Fernando Gago and the midfielder lofts a woeful cross out of play.
55' PENALTY CLAIMS
Ashkan Dejagah chases down Pablo Zabaleta and the right-back takes a swing at the ball catching the Iranian player. Dejagah appeals and insists he was fouled, but the referee waves it away.
53' WHAT A CHANCE
That is brilliant from Iran. Carlos Queiroz's team carry the ball out of defence to create a chance for Reza Ghoochannejhad, who gets across the centre back and steers a diving header towards goal. Alireza Haghighi manages to save.
50' JUST OVER
Pablo Zabaleta finally gets forward on the right and brings the ball inside. However, the right-back's shot sails over the bar.
49' SLOW TEMPO
Argentina again have the ball, but they need to up the tempo that they are playing at. Rather than taking to three or four touches they need to start playing a quick one touch game to force an opening.
46' SECOND HALF
We are back underway.
45' IRAN STAND FIRM
Argentina have seen a lot of the ball, but Iran have managed to restrict their opponents to only half chances and have also created a couple of moments of excitement themselves. Lionel Messi has been particularly quiet whilst Gonzalo Higuain has looked ungainly. Argentina's best chances have been from set pieces with Marcos Rojo and Ezequiel Garay heading over when they should have tested the keeper. Jalal Hosseini had a great chance for Iran at the end of the half, but he also missed the target. Can Iran keep this up in the second half?
45' HALF TIME
The game reaches the break goalless.
44' SAFE HANDS
Gonzalo Higuain tries to curl a low ball into the box, but Alireza Haghighi does well to catch and hold.
42' WHAT A CHANCE
Iran, you won't get many more of those. Jalal Hosseini gets on the end of a corner from Ashkan Dejagah, but the defender sends his header over the bar.
40' TERRIBLE CROSS
Argentina are relying on their full backs to create the width. Marcos Rojo in particular has seen a lot of the ball, but his crossing has let him down.
36' OVER THE BAR
Another free kick for Argentina but this time Lionel Messi chooses to cross and Ezequiel Garay gets on the end of it. However, the defender steers his header over the bar.
32' WELL OVER
Argentina win a free kick on the edge of the box. Lionel Messi steps up to take it, but he spoons his shot over the bar.
28' POOR PLAY
Gonzalo Higuain has been poor thus far. The striker has shown a heavy touch and has again just given the ball away again. Each time Higuain it gives Iran a chance to get the ball forward and reorganise the defence.
24' SO CLOSE
That is the closest we have come to a goal. A lofted corner is met by Marcos Rojo, who leaps above the Iran defence but the full back sees his header flash past the post. Carlos Queiroz will not be impressed by that defending.
22' GREAT SAVE
Great play from Argentina as they knock the ball about and probe the Iran defence. Gonzalo Higuain lays the ball off to Sergio Aguero, who tries to curl his shot into the far post but Alireza Haghighi tips it round the post.
18' TERRIBLE TOUCH
Iran have a corner, but their joy quickly turns to danger as Argentina break. Angel Di Maria carries the ball forward and eventually a chance opens up for Gonzalo Higuain, but the striker takes a heavy touch and Iran tidy up.
16' PLAY RESTARTS
Alireza Haghighi is back on his feet. It was a timely break as it allowed Carlos Queiroz to do some organising.
14' GREAT SAVE
A fine ball from Fernando Gago picks out Gonzalo Higuain, but Alireza Haghighi does well to close down the striker. Higuain has no room to get his shot off and the keeper saves, but it comes at a cost as the keeper is down injured.
11' IRAN FAILING TO CLEAR
A decent spell for Argentina as Iran win the ball, but fail to clear their lines. Alejandro Sabella's side are working hard to win the ball back as Iran delay in the hope of making a killer counter attack.
8' ARGENTINA POSSESSION
Unsurpirsingly, it is the Argentinians that are controlling the game. However, Iran look well organised and are keeping eleven players behind the ball, forcing the opposition wide.
4' IRAN CHANCE
Iran will place much of their hopes on being able to get something from set pieces and they very nearly create the game's first chance. A ball is played in from the left and flicked on, but it is just beyond the runner.
1' KICK OFF
The games is underway with Iran on the ball.
0' IRAN TEAM NEWS
Alireza Haghighi has the unenviable task of keeping goal for Iran and he will need as much help from his defenders as possible. Reza Ghoochannejhad is the lone forward in Carlos Quieroz's side.
0' ARGENTINA TEAM NEWS
Alejandro Sabella goes with a 4-3-3 as requested by Lionel Messi. Gonzalo Higuain and Sergio Aguero start in attack. Angel Di Maria will also be given license to get forward whilst Javier Mascherano will sit in front of the back four.
0' ARGENTINA LOOK TO MESSI
Today's meeting of Argentina and Iran is the first time the two teams have met at the World Cup and both teams have it all to play for. The South Americans top the group, but Iran's draw with Nigeria gives them some hope of qualifying particularly if they can repeat a strong defensive performance. Lionel Messi has made it publically clear that he hopes his coach opts for the attacking 4-3-3 formation that worked so well in the second half against Bosnia and Herzegovina. The formation and form of Argentina's star player will surely be the key to breaking down the stubborn Iranians.
0' ARGENTINA CAN QUALIFY TODAY
Lionel Messi doubled his tally of goals at World Cup finals in that game against Bosnia and Herzegovina and he will be surely looking for more today. Argentina fans will have been relieved by the goal and must feel that this year could be their year. A win today would cement that feeling and confirm Argentina's place in the next round.
0' CAN IRAN HOLD OUT?
On the evidence of the opening game Carlos Quieroz has done a good job of organising the Iranian team, but the extent of that job will be tested today as they face a number of world class players. Some of the Iran team are talking up their chances of an upset as they embrace their underdog tag; however, a win is surely out of the question.
