An England fan is overjoyed after Iran scored their second consolation goal against the Three Lions.
Gareth Southgate’s troops thrashed the Iranians 6-2 in their World Cup opener on Monday.
England fans up and down the country went wild with each goal – although one supporter was more thrilled with Iran’s second match.
An optimistic bettor placed a bet on what turned out to be the correct scoreline.
Gambler’s speculative punt looked set to come deep into second-half injury time when Murtaza Pourliganji was fouled by John Stones.
Footage on social media showed an England supporter panicking after the spot kick was awarded.
As Mehdi Torabi walked into the pub with his head in his hands, ready to take the penalty, the boy was overwhelmed with emotion.
But he was soon celebrating a resounding victory when the Porto striker calmly threw the ball past a dismayed Jordan Pickford.
Blok is surrounded by his friends, who tie him up in celebration before hoisting him into the air.
As per the video, the boy won a whopping £2,500 for his speculative punt.

Footy fans were quick to comment on the surprise win, with one saying: “This bar bill is sorted.”
Another said: “It’s mint and nuts.”
And another said: “New trim and jacket straight at the top of the list babbbbbyyyyyy.”
Three Lions chief Southgate was thrilled with the team’s performance but wants them to be more defensively strong in their clash with USA on Friday.
He said: “We are really happy to start the tournament in this way and really happy with our offensive play.
“We know it is difficult to score goals against Iran, so it is a credit to the movement of our players, the quality of our passing and finishing.
“At the end of the game, the way we did it to concede two goals was not the level we needed.
“We need to be better than we were today against USA because they will come at full force for us. We have to reset.”
“I don’t like games that drift and there were a lot of extra minutes in both halves.
“I understand game drift happens, but it will not be enough for us to progress. We still have a lot to do to qualify.”
