The United States vs. Iran not only had a sporting connotation, but also a political one, given the historical conflicts between the two nations. In addition, the match, which defined the qualifier for the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, came amid controversy, after the Asian representative’s request to exclude his rival from the contest for making a publication with his modified flag.

Finally, the claim was unsuccessful and the two squads saw action at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha: the match culminated in the victory (1-0) and qualification for the North American team, after Christian Pulisic’s goal, at minute 38. When their elimination from the World Cup was confirmed, the Iranian team was plunged into sadness.

After referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz’s whistle, those led by Carlos Queiroz did not hide their regret for the defeat and some could not hold back their tears. In that sense, Ramin Rezaeian, who scored a goal in the 2-0 win over Wales, was one of the most affected and his teammates could not console him.

The scene was moving and Antonee Robinson, left back for the United States, did not hesitate to intercede to calm down her opponent on duty. The Fulham player approached the Iranian’s location, gave him a fraternal hug and dedicated a few words to him. The images soon went viral on social media.

The Iranian team, despite prematurely withdrawing from the World Cup, left a good image in their presentations.
