Iran-Argentina World Cup match in the eyes of Iranian cartoonists

Here is how Iranian cartoonists see the Iran-Argentina World Cup match which was played in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on Saturday June 21st. Iran played a great game, and the score was tied at 0-0 after 90 minutes of regular play time. Then at the 91st minute (during 4 minutes of injury time), Lionel Messi scored a goal to give Argentina a 1-0 victory. It is also widely believed that the Serbian ref Milorad Mazic did not call a penalty for Iran during the second half when Iranian forward Ashkan Dejagah was tackled by Argentina's Pablo Zabaleta in the penalty area.
