  1. Qatar is just another third world dictator country with no shame! There is no human right or freedom of speech . They didnโ€™t let Iranian to bring their flags or wear the clothes they wanted & did everything to ban & censure everything due to their great relationship with Islamic regime. They even allowed the Islamic republic to bring their own man in the stadium & in Doha to arrest & harass the people .. they should be so ashamed for how they have bow down to Iran regime & their request & demands & has become their puppet! A puppet of a terrorist government while the whole world is trying to sanction & cut ties

  2. Iranians are happy for this team lost. They didnโ€™t consider this team as their national team . These players at the end stood with the terrorist regime instead of their people. Itโ€™s a big celebration in Iran streets now because of US win !

  3. US players should have been banned from the game! According to section 13 of FIFA rules, any person who offends the dignity or integrity of a country, a person or group of people … shall be sanctioned with a suspension lasting at least ten matches or a specific period, or any other appropriate disciplinary measure!

  4. This is a propaganda campaign against Iran. Inciting deadly riots, burning police officers alive, burning schools/buses/hospitals are not protests. There is a different between protest & violence.

  5. Our hypocrisy is shameful/endless! USA/We've placed illegal/inhuman sanction(economic warfare/collective punishment)on a nation with 80M people making it difficult 2 buy food/medicine during a pandemic. We've interfered in Iran's domestic affairs 4 many years(1953, CIA-assisted coup overthrows government of Iran), & provided military support 2 Sadam during Iraq-Iran war killing millions of Iranians. USA has no credibility!

  6. USA has no credibility! BlackLivesMatter protests reveal so much US hypocrisy! GOP is quick to support protestors in Iran but tries to diminish American grievances & calls protestors criminals! Hypocrites!

  7. US regime has no credibility! We spend $740 billion on the Pentagon, but somehow we don't have enough money to provide health care, housing and childcare to all Americans!

  8. US regime has no credibility! We support the barbaric regime of Saudi Arabia(butchered a journalist into pieces/supported 9/11 perpetrators killing 3000 Americans/funds every terror groups in the ME such as ISIS/Al Qaeda/Al Shabab/Al Nusra, beheads anyone who criticizes mBS, & suppressions of women's rights!The double standard is shameful!

  9. USA's credibility has image problem! Since 1948 the apartheid regime of Israel has murdered/brutalized/dehumanized/oppressed, & mass incarcerated Palestinians! Our tax dollars are paying to destroy Palestinian lives. Hypocrites!

  10. Let's focus on human rights in US and leave the rest of the world in peace! We have created enough war, pain, and conflict across the globe! Our double standard and hypocrisy are shameful!

  11. ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  12. The USMNT passed a stern test to reach the Round of 16 in Iran.

    Even if Tim Weah's goal counted to make it 2-0, Iran still refused to quit and the USMNT held down the fort despite running out of gas late.

  13. Us win is match and know one in Qatar ๐Ÿ‡ถ๐Ÿ‡ฆ party with them ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  14. I wish politics had No room in sports.
    Iranian players were emotionally down due to the current situation in their country.

  15. Itโ€™s football. What does FIFA stands for? Whereโ€™s the โ€œSโ€. You will lose Saturday and your women will stop getting paid for nothing either. I canโ€™t believe the women get paid based on how good the men do. Disgrace. ๐Ÿ˜ก
