Iran finish the first round of Group B games top of the pile, after a dramatic 1-0 win over Morocco.

The winning goal came deep into injury-time, with the unfortunate Aziz Bouhaddouz, a second-half sub, heading a cross into the back of his own net.

It really was a calamitous, if rather well-taken goal.

Not surprisingly, the  St. Pauli attacker was distraught at the final whistle, with his team-mates consoling him.

This Tweet from his club didn’t do any good, did it!?

After the game, Iran striker Reza Ghoochannejhad, an unused sub in the game, took to Instagram to console Bouhaddouz, saying:

I don’t know you personally but in life, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Don’t let this own goal bring you down.

We are all professional sportsmen and this is a part of football. I am so happy and proud of my team and my country, but wanted to wish you also all the best in your career.

Quite a nice gesture from the former Charlton forward.

As for Bouhaddouz, let’s hope he can bounce back from the own-goal and get on with his career.
