Messi’s Late Goal Lifts Argentina Into Round of 16

Messi’s Late Goal Lifts Argentina Into Round of 16

Jean Catuffe/Getty Images(BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil) -- Lionel Messi was once again the hero for Argentina, scoring an injury-time winner to defeat Iran 1-0 on Saturday. Messi's goal was his second of the tournament, pushing Argentina into the knockout stage.

Both goalkeepers played impressively well, each making multiple saves to keep the scoreless at 0-0. Argentina's best chance came in the first 15 minutes when Fernando Gago fed a ball through to Gonzalo Higuain but Iranian keeper Alireza Haghighi came out from net to deny the opportunity. Haghighi made another athletic save on Sergio Aguera in the first have.

Looking for a stunning upset, Iran played tremendously for 90 minutes. Reza Ghoochannejhad had a pair of chances, both of which were denied by Sergio Romero. After missing a free kick wide of the net, Ghoochannejhad's header was saved by Romero's low dive to keep the game scoreless.

Messi finally broke through just moments into stoppage time. The Barcelona striker received the ball at the top left side of the box, where he made a quick move to the inside and curled a shot inside the far post for the win.
