Iran were only once in the World Cup finals before; in Argentina, 1978.

The revolution and war with with Iraq slowed down their progress in the eighties, but the country is more stable now and Iran earned their place here after a fight back in Melbourne, to draw 2-2 against Terry Venables' side, and win on the away goals over two legs.
