It is now the turn of Iran coach Carlos Queiroz to announce his list for the Qatari World Cup, scheduled for November 20 to December 18. Placed in group B, the Iranian selection will face England then Wales and finally the United States. While the country and its people are going through a particularly difficult period, Iran will have a lot to do to achieve the feat and get out of this group.
While waiting for the start of the competition, the Portuguese has therefore announced the list of 25 Iranian players summoned for the event. Despite pressure from the Iranian government, we can note the presence of Mehdi Taremi and Sardar Azmoun within the group in particular. The latter is indeed present on Iran’s list despite his position in favor of the Iranian people who have been revolting for several weeks now.
