Iran Fans Unfurl Banner at World Cup in Support of Women

Women in Iran have been forbidden from attending all-male sporting events since a year after the 1979 Islamic revolution, but last year authorities overturned a ban on women attending volleyball games. The team's superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, was responsible for all three of his team's goals. "Spain is if not the best team in the world, then one of the best". "I think if I would have come to this press conference with a draw I would also have been disappointed given how the game played out".
