Mexico 3, Iran 1
This is the first World Cup match I watched. It was rife with political relevence. 1) The Iranian President tried to attend the match but was ruled persona non grata by Germany.

This has caused a great amount of outrage among Mexicans because "Mexico is for Mexicans". America was then heard to say, "whao, whao, whao, hold on a second..."
