FULL TIME: Argentina come away from the Estadio Mineirao with three points, thanks to their captain and goalscorer Lionel Messi's last minute heroics. Iran must be commended as they played some of the most disicplined football we've seen in this entire tournament. Team Melli can be proud of the effort they put in today and even had a couple of good looks on goal to maybe score themselves. But Messi, as he is known to do, shows some sublime skill and his shot was never going to be saved by Haghighi. The South Americans, now on six points, have secured passage to the Round of 16 with the win.
