Argentina 1, Iran 0: A charter member of Bush's Axis of Evil heartbreakingly loses to one of Thatcher's...Messi scored in his second consecutive game, after having been put in shackles for 90 minutes, with a blast in injury time.  Iran played a brilliant, frustrating defensive game (Argentina had 77% of the possession), and for the first hour was not afraid of pressing the ball forward to take chances .  The final fifteen or so minutes were almost entirely played within the final thirty yards in Iran's half, but Argentina never really threatened to score until they actually did so.
