Protests abound inside Iran because the nationwide staff performs on the World Cup.
The final time Iran confronted the USA on the World Cup, again in 1998, the streets of Tehran erupted in celebration after Iran gained. This time round, emotions are way more difficult.

Since then, foreign-based rights teams say a whole bunch have been killed by safety forces and hundreds arrested.
