Cartoon recreates Lionel Messi’s match-winner during Argentina’s narrow 1-0 win over Iran

The good people at 442oons have created a new cartoon after Argentina narrowly beat Iran 1-0 on Saturday.

The match was settled by a solo special from Lionel Messi in injury time, after the Iranian defence has repelled the Celeste for an incredible 91 minutes.

Putting a comedy spin on the match, the new cartoon paints the Iranian keeper as Darth Vader, while Lionel Messi receives coaching tips from Diego Maradona on how to breach the Persians backline.

Enjoy the cartoon on Argentine 1 – Iran 0 below.
