After 91 minutes of deadlock, Lionel Messi put his foot down and went beast mode. The Argentine attack was out of ideas—midfielders hung out on the edge of the penalty box waiting for a pop at goal as Argentine fullbacks aimlessly floated crosses for Iranian defenders to head away. A 0-0 draw seemed inevitable.
Messi wasn't having any of that, and the result was mind-melting, obviously.
Argentina is now secure and off to the next round.
