  • This rating system is embarrassing to put Messi that high, just shows how missleading it can be.

  • argentina was nothing,,,nothing,,,nothinggg

  • messi was statistically better against iran than bosnia, yet his rating against bosnia was 9.2. how can 'but whoscored.com ratings are based on algorithms' explain this?

  • This game can not really be compared, or used as a measure in any other game. No other team in this sport is playing around with a tired game as Iran plays so the Argentinean attack will work a lot better when your opponent is trying to attack even.

  • I'm proud of my team. Argentina was the huge favourites but we controlled the game perfectly for 91 minutes. We could have a penalty kick and ofcouse we could have scored in open play when Dejagah Head kick went just milimeters wide. Argentina got lucky. I do not think they can go far after this stage. They have no plan. They just pass it to Messi and wish his natural talent to win the game for them. Sorry. Germany, Holland or France will destroy you.

  • @Sinaj Ludicrous. How can a team control a game with just over 100 passes completed, no goals and 3 shots from open play? I'll never join the overenthusiastic people who say putting 10 men behind the ball and aiming only to defend is "genius" tactics. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the point is to WIN the game right? You can't have different standards for different teams. As a not so great American football coach once said: YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME.

  • @jnsbstn you know greece won the european championship in 2004? and spain was beaten 5-1 regardless their 'dominant' passing. even finland managed to defend a 1-1 draw against spain in the qualifiers!

  • @Sinaj I don´t know if Iran controlled the game, but have the most the clearest scoring plays, Argentina plays to nothing, good display of heart by Iran but bad luck

  • Oh yeah, great game Iranians! Dejagah, I mean - totally penalty, right?

  • Iran are going home without scoring a goal

  • GOD DAMN THE REFEREE

  • @mahdibelly The Referee hit the ball 3 times in the game,Two of them happened while IRAN was agressing into Argentina....& He DIDN'T WHISTLE for TWO PENALTIES for Iran.Iran could win the game,But two people brought about this outcome: firt:The referee & second LEO MESSI

  • iran>argentina

  • proud of ur performance Iraninans> Eeven though Im not even Iraianan it goes to show outsiders like appreciate good football frm unexpected sources. well i agree wid majority here that IRianins could won this match given 2 penalties. but hey this football. Still im root for either germany and argentina for this tournament. Hey TEAM IRAN ur awesome play made a fan ur team.

  • Lavezzi played well

  • the sum of Iranian player price in transfer market is less than 1/3 lionel messi price. But they played really well and even could win the game in referee got the penalty on Dejagah. however I tink Iran deserved atleast a drew. we proud of you Princes of Persia :*

  • im from argentina but it is fairly to say iran as the winner.

  • iran should have got two penalties.

  • So sorry for FIFA .... The referee changed the result, penalty yyyyyyyyyy Sorry for FIFA Viva Iran

  • @mahdibelly The Referee hit the ball 3 times in the game,Two of them happened while IRAN was agressing into Argentina....& He DIDN'T WHISTLE for TWO PENALTIES for Iran.Iran could win the game,But two people brought about this outcome: firt:The referee & second LEO MESSI

  • Thank you Messi!

  • On a serious note though. How Di Maria's rating is over 8 is beyond me. He constantly kept giving the ball away, poor crosses, poor touches, etc. Higuain is an overrated piece of crap and had is usual poor game. Gago kept giving the ball away. Aguero was invisible. Argentina were lucky but Iran were always giving them a chance with their deep defending.

  • Messi's pulling a Maradona, he's gonna carry Argentina to the final, just watch

  • @bradley.panton better to stop and try to hesitate about your rubbish words,,specially messi

  • @bradley.panton It wont happen. I promise. Argentina is just too weak to win this cup.

  • @Sinaj we'll see.

  • I would really like to see what the algorithm is for figuring out player ratings. Should Messi be MOTM? Sure, I won't argue with that, but how can you say Messi was better than Suarez the other day? Messi took 6 shots, but only 1 was on target. Does he get bonus points for being Messi?

  • @hamburglar players are not rated on how beautifully they played or how hard they worked. they are purely rated on how they contributed to the team's victory be it defensively or offensively. the goal earned the win, simple as that

  • @hamburglar My guess is maybe they give extra for a late winner? Or maybe goals outside the box? Who knows but no one on the field deserved a 8.9 rating.

  • @TheFactsProvider The best I can figure out is that they overvalue dribbles. Who cares if he can dribble past Iranian players only to completely miss the goal or lose the ball.

  • @hamburglar Definitely a lot of weight given to dribbles, players with high dribbles always get high ratings, even though they might not do much else

  • @hamburglar Well that might be it but I still think it has a lot to do with the goal because his rating was hovering around 7 before he scored. I think they give bonus for late winners.

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • @hamburglar I think this is more of a question of why Suarez' rating was so low, but yeah 8.9 seems generous

  • messi will take struggling this cup.:DDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  • Hahaha suck it Iran

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • @wpittman u say that when u'r balls was in u'r throat

  • @wpittman and enjoy it :)

  • That little guy is so f... incredible

  • I'm really proud of Team Melli! we should have had a penalty but...

  • Glad Iran lost. That's what happens when you park the bus for 80% of the match.

  • @TheFactsProvider back to the match and see the second half again!!! a misssing penalty and 3 100%

  • Argentina gets exposed badly on counter , a good offense can ruin them

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • IRAN Just The Best

  • gooooooooooooooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • Iran threatened Argentina for the first time and suddenly yellow card for Iranian captain for soft foul and no penalty given. Leo Missi(g) the whole game, one shot - 8.7. And even better with Di Maria - 8.2 :D:D:D

  • @El_Duderino difference between 1pts and 3pts

  • gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllllllll

  • Great goal by Messi. But Iran have played very well. Some of you are really pathetic on here and need to give credit when a team defends well. It's clear some of you aren't football fans and just idiots and trolls. Iran's defending was brilliant in this game and only the best player in the world could unlock them.

  • @RelentlessPressure Agreed. just... The best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo.

  • Messssssiiiiiiiiiiiiiii <3

  • LMAO with those ratings. Dejagah > Messi.

  • @El_Duderino If we are referring to bitching about every call: Dejagah > everyone

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • even 20+ shots unable to score!

  • messi suddenly became ronaldo as taking shot from distance

  • messi 10.1 !

  • finally, the world's most boring football disappears.

  • YES LIONEL MESSI YES. THE BEST. come back at home iranians HAHAHAHA

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • LOL Messi just broken Iranian hearts.

  • More like ref did that job better.

  • What a pitty....the better team loses

  • @neumi17 ahahah

  • MESSI GOLAAAZOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • BOOOOOOOM

  • GOLAZOOOOOOOOO

  • QUE LAZO

  • The commentator keeps saying that Messi is one of the weakest on the field, yet Whoscored.com rates him 7,7..LOL

  • Ref is the man of the match.

  • I hope that all teams start 2 play like Iran. Then we see lots of good games :)

  • @Jyrgen Iran are a boring defensive shitty team.

  • @Villa And yet they had more clear chances for goal than Argentina.

  • Great game and stamina of Iran, well done...

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • Minuto 74: Messi 7.5. Algo no funciona.

  • Or Iran, Costa Rica and Chile are stronger than Argetina Spain and Italy, or is it going the way I said... oh yes, thousands times ballon d'or winner is weak than dejagwhat?!

  • I hope that Iran ever qualify again. Iran style kills football. FIFA, do something.

  • @Jyrgen when just messi's price is 10 times of iran's total team what u expected???????????

  • @Jyrgen simply disgusting

  • @Jyrgen Iran is the team playing in RED not blue and white...maybe thats explains something...

  • @Jyrgen Get out of here dude. Go watch Barbie, and Justin Bieber on youtube, because football is obviously not for you.

  • @DelJuve You seem to be smart acording to your analysis and off topic comments.:-)

  • @neumi17 sorry, was meant for Jyrgen

  • @DelJuve LOL, is this football? i dont think so, this is a joke.

  • Iran > Argentina

  • Iran have been all over Argentina the last 15 minutes

  • Iran have really put an incredibly talented Argentine side to shame. The tactics are very very effective, and the Iranian players have a lot of nerve.

  • Zabaleta played the ball.. I don't think that is a penalty. Though Dejagah should be happy not to be punished for attacking the referee.

  • Lol Di Maria plays frustrating, few meaningless dribbles and rating of 8.0, whoscored nfix something because those ratings are getting more and more ridicolous...mainly due to absurdally high value of "dribbles won"

  • @Zootball whoscored.com is lots of dribbles = good player, good game.... They have no clue what counts in football

  • @Zootball Well, I can't see a better player in the Argentina side.. Messi is the only one that comes close. Also, di Maria has made quite a nice amount of tackles. Also 3 key passes..

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • I don't know why Nekounam was booked for such a soft foul. It was his first foul. That's also a penalty.

  • Iran deserves the lead by now against a totally dull argentian side.The refs were probably told not to decide against the "big teams" in order for them to keep their chances high to advanc...

  • Obvious penalty, stupid ref!!

  • Yeah, @Jyrgen how was that from most boring team???

  • How did Iran qualify? You need to score goals to qualify...

  • @Villa and u need refree to not lose

  • What did you expect, with this absurd climate is impossible to play. In the second half will be the same thing and worse. We thank the fifa for this! The ball can not turn quickly and teams barricade in defence have the better. And who based the game on the dribble is disadvantage. Italy against Costa Rica, Spain against Chile and Netherlands. Argentina against Iran. etc

  • @KingSchultz Italy and spain don`t dribbel at all in their games as you can notice when you take a look at the stats... The Netherlands dribbel a lot and are succesfull !

  • @KingSchultz Most of the early kick-offs have been like this. Belgium - Algeria was similar to this game. But it's no excuse for Argentina really.

  • @excalibur 0-1 at 70'...won by a cross header... yes..

  • @KingSchultz Just because the temperature is not what some teams usually play in doesn't mean it is an "absurd climate". Argentina should be use to playing in these temperatures anyway so they have no excuse. Qatar is where there will be absurd temperatures.

  • @TheFactsProvider some of argetina players live in europe by many years. it's not an excuse, this is reality.

  • Iran defends well on ground but aerially they are weak

  • Bring in Lavezzi , take off higuain

  • @commandozap Higuain is having his usual poor game. He needs to be given at least 10 chances before he finally scores.

  • @TheFactsProvider Plus he has a poor touch on the ball and can`t rarely controll it when passed to...

  • Iran is the world's most boring football team.

  • And yet another big shot who can`t live up to the expectations and plays quite harmless...

  • @neumi17 anything wrong with my analysis ? it`s quite obvious...

  • Iran can win just need one fluke

  • I want to see Ricky in action instead of gago :(

  • this is the world cup of warm and difence.... plof

  • Iran should be banned from World Cup. You can't play like this...

  • @MoshEne Congrats , just when i thought i was missing MHoY

  • @MoshEne like what, defending well ?

  • @MoshEne I totally agree.

  • @MoshEne You should be banned from this site noob

  • @MoshEne Why? They have every right to. This is how Greece plays. It's boring, but you have to adapt when the squad is not good enough. The scoreline shows that it has worked so far.

  • @MoshEne What do you expect them to do? Play an expansive 4-3-3, with wing backs, and play right into Argentina's hands? Clueless idiot.

  • Argentina HA -2 @ 2.05

  • Who do you think will be WhoScored's Man of the Match? Everyone knows who it going to be and i that could happen

  • @sun If Messi touches the ball more than 10 times he will be motm

  • Look, Holland won 5-2 vs Spain, everything can happen. This could be a Argentina win, draw and loss. Everything can happen at this World Cup!

  • 1-0 Iran, don't belittle Iran, there is something spiritual in this team. Unfortunately Argentina players don't be aware about hand of god in iranian team. let's watch this unpredictable part of WORLD CUP 2014.

  • 3-0 I guess

  • I think 2-0 is probably the right prediction. Iran will be hard to break down but I think Argentina will eventually score. At the end Iran will attack, open up and Argentina will get the 2nd on the counter. This is probably the most likely outcome.

  • Will win $230 if Iran win. Come on IRAN!!!!!!!!!!!

  • There is no way Iran players can stop Messi

  • It would be a total travesty if Iran win this game.

  • 3-0 or 4-1 for Argentina ! Vamos Albiceleste !

  • I reckon it will be a 2-0 win

  • should end something like 5-0 but you never know...

  • 1-0

  • sir Yousef prediction: iran1. arg3. he watched this match in dream, last night!

  • IRAAAAAAAAAAAAN...IRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN

  • اگه یه وقت معجزه بشه و ببریم و نیجریه هم بوسنی رو ببره صعود می کنیم! چون اگه آرژانتین نیجریه رو ببره که صعود می کنه و اگه ببازه نیجریه و ما صعود می کنیم.

  • Hope to will be Draw

  • El jugador del partido va a ser messi

  • Gana Argentina 3-0 o por ahi 3-1

  • @matiase.saraniti you you need both hands,both legs and head of GOD to score a goal. although Iran don't have a good attacker but Iran defensive line is perfect

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • It's gonna be another 0-0 for Iran! If Mehrdad Pooladi and Jalal Hosseini Perform like the last game even LEO can't breach that defensive line.

  • arg 0-1 iran goal by guchchi <3

  • خدا کنه خسرو حیدری رو نذاره توی ترکیب

  • ARG 5 IRN 0? uhh.. Careful messi, iranian president is a big fan, if iran thrashed, they will launch atomic bombs to buenos aires!

  • @SoccerAnalyst ridi baba. messi is going to be a clumzy potato in front of Iranian difencive line.

  • @SoccerAnalyst I don't think Iran would be that stupid.

  • @Villa lol at villa taking this comment serious

  • Iran 1-0 Arg

  • I bet Argentina can't score any goal. just see how many goal Iran has received in last year and you'll admit it. 0-0 ,and if the game have goal, or goals its for Iran ;)

  • @mostafa.v68 Highly improbable that Argentina do not score.It's one thing to not allow Qatar, Lebanon, South Korea and Nigeria to not score. And a totally different ball game to not allow Argentina to not score. Once there is one goal (which would be the toughest one for Argentina to get) there will be many more following it.

  • @mostafa.v68 How about a bet? I will never log in to this site again if Argentina fail to score...

  • @Villa OK we will see ;)

  • @Villa did you see? just luck and REFEREE ;)

  • @mostafa.v68 Yes we will see :-)

  • @Villa did you see? just luck and REFEREE ;)

  • ایران اگه نترسه با ایمان به خدا و دعاهای مردم حتما میبره

  • argentina wins 5-1

  • iran <33333 0 - 0

  • اگه بچه ها بدون ترس بازی کنن میتونیم امتیاز بگیریم از ژاپن که کمتر نیستیم که آرژانتینو برد

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • iran 2-2 Argentina آرژانتین مسی رو داره اما ما خدا و مردمو داریم که دعاها پشتشونه زنده باد تیم ملی ایران
