Iran vs USA
When Iran were drawn in the same group as the USA at the 1998 World Cup, it was immediately billed as a grudge match between two nations who failed to see eye-to-eye on a political level.
Just before kick-off, the two captains exchanged gifts like it was Christmas day - but once the action got underway, it was clear both teams were desperate to win.
In the end, Iran upset the odds to prevail 2-1. The result eliminated the US and sparked wild celebrations in Tehran.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the nation's spiritual leader, said in a message to his team: ''Tonight, again, the strong and arrogant opponent felt the bitter taste of defeat at your hands.''
