Ricardo Quaresma Scores Physics-Defying Goal For Portugal Vs. Iran

But a tenacious and ambitious Iran, masterminded by former Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz, can still go through if they win, a feat that is not beyond them if they play as they did in their narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of former world champions Spain.

It had been an enjoyable evening for Cedric until the dreaded late moment.

To state that Spain and Portugal went through to the last 16 of the World Cup on Monday, and will face Russian Federation and Uruguay, respectively, is true. In fact, the Portuguese superstars have been only one of the few players who have stood for Portugal in this year's World Cup with the rest of the team's performance bordering on mediocre status.

"I don't think he has caught him in the face".

"We deserved to win the game", Queiroz said.

He said: "The reality is you stop the game for VAR and there is an elbow".

A team like the Rockets with a James Harden could be one, but until James makes a decision, it's all speculation for now. We do, however, believe they need to pull out all the stops to convince LeBron to stay.

After missing a second half penalty to double his country's lead, the Real Madrid man clashed with Morteza Pouraliganji, throwing an elbow in the direction of the Iran defender. The rules don't say if it is Messi or Ronaldo it's a little bit. It is a red! It is about the attitude and the bravery and the character. The decisions must be clear for everybody.

"So in my opinion, Mr. Infantino and Federation Internationale de Football Association, everybody agreed that VAR is not going well". There's a lot of complaints. "We believe in what we're doing and we've had a pretty good start to this competition, but there is room for improvement", added centre-back Jose Fonte.

"We don't know if it was the referee or the guys upstairs [who decided]". Players make mistakes, coaches make mistakes, and referees make mistakes. "Give me a break".

Five minutes into the second half, Portugal were awarded a penalty following review from the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

After 16 minutes, Ronaldo tried his luck from a long-range free kick but the ball cannoned off the wall and over the bar with the Portugal captain appealing in vain that it had struck an arm.

Suarez also joined a select list of six players to have scored multiple goals in three World Cups - Germany's Miroslav Klose (who did it in four), Uwe Seeler, Jurgen Klinsmann, Rudi Voller, Ronaldo of Brazil, and Italy's Roberto Baggio. Iran set up defensively frustrating La Roja, and could have come away with a famous draw had Saeid Ezatolahi's goal not been chalked off for being offside thanks to VAR.
