Iran: Tehran fans take the positives despite narrow 1-0 loss to Spain

Football fans, male and female alike, enjoyed a World Cup viewing at the Azadi Stadium in Tehran on Wednesday, even though Iran suffered a 1-0 loss to Spain. «With this play that we saw today against Spain, we have the ability to play as well against Portugal. You saw we had many good chances,» one fan said. Despite dominating possession, Spain were unable to forge any clear cut openings as... Еще an iron-willed Iranian XI camped on the edge of their box, giving them plenty of positives to take into their next game against Portugal on June 25. Another reason that fans rejoiced was that Iranian women were allowed in the stadium for the first time since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. «This was my biggest dream. I was jumping for joy. I want this to happen again so I come back again,» one female fan said.
