Female fans from Iran who have traveled to Russian Federation for the tournament have been shown in photos at the stadium supporting the team in its 1-0 opening-match win against Morocco, which was only the second victory ever in the World Cup by an Iranian side.

On Friday the Iranian diaspora from around the world flocked to St Petersburg for Iran's curtain raiser in Russian Federation against Herve Renard's Morocco. We know we have a very strong group.

Mexican Manuel Rosas was the first to score an own goal in World Cup. They now have a chance in a group where they must now face favourites Spain and Portugal.

Jose Gimenez scored the winning goal for Uruguay with a brilliant header in 89th minute of the match.

Morocco will now need a positive result when they play Portugal on Wednesday, before Iran play Spain on the same day. "We are happy to enjoy the pressure", he said.

Suddenly, Iran's blighted and frustrating World Cup buildup - the scrapped friendly matches, the sportswear sanctions from the United States that prevented players from wearing their favorite soccer shoes - didn't matter anymore.

Russian Federation leads Group A on goal difference after beating Saudi Arabia 5-0 on Thursday in the tournament's first match.

Former Real Madrid coach Queiroz was handed the Iran job in April 2011 and has qualified the country for the last two World Cup tournaments, the first time they have appeared at back-to-back finals.

The Iranian player Reza Ghoochannejhad supported Aziz Bouhaddouz on Twitter: "I do not know you personally but in life, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose". This was in sharp contrast to the scene witnessed at one of the main squares in Tehran where no women were seen in the crowd of fans cheering for their team.

"You can play all the Champions Leagues in the world, you can win as much as you want, you can do whatever you want in the world of football, the nation goes before everything", Hadji told Goal .
