Millions of joyous Iranians flooded the streets of Tehran on Tuesday after the national team beat Asia powerhouse South Korea 1-0 away to qualify for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.
Men, women and children, still in party mood following the victory of moderate Hassan Rowhani in Friday's presidential election, filled the streets.
"Brazil here we come," sang the fans in football-mad Iran.
Footage aired on state television showed similar outpourings of joy around the country.
