Again 3 points is better than nothing

As i said i don't think big teams totally ignore the friendly results, same as fans, this is like us losing against Jordan, Oman, Thailand, etc, imagine our fans reactions?

I remember few days after the game, i was somewhere and met an Iranian-Chilean guy who grow up in Chile and was more Chilean than Persian, as he was a die hard Chile fan and told me people at home were really upset about the result, we didn't take Iran seriously or not, is not an excuse and is not acceptable.
