    oofff...a nightmare indeed. However 3 great games which our young players would never get to play against in such a short time. Definitely 3 scenes for some of our players, like Azmoun, to get exposure in.

    Aslan that would be the dream draw. Takes all the pressure off Iran and puts it all on other teams. Brings the best out of Iran's crappy defensive game too.

    Iran looks its worst against Pot 3 and 4 teams. No ability to attack, but a huge insistence on making the game as boring as possible

    Rare we agree, but yes, this is exactly right.
    Our best games are against the "big" teams. Its against the midlevel teams that we struggle. And people complain about why CQ wants to play friendlies versus teams like Panama and Ukraine instead of Brazil and Spain.

    Both Tunesia and Senegal just qualified in front of us.
    We are so lucky to take the very last spot in 3rd pot (24th)
    which means we made the first goal of being in pot 3, but... only just

    That has always been the case guys, look at even the last WC our best game was VS Argentina, we seem to be the tam that plays to the level of our opponent. If we play a big dog then Iran will go all out but if we play against a mediocre team, then they will match that effort. Today's 1-0 win v Venezuela was not a bad result, against a very good defensive team. Usually, we are due for one good game, one ok game and one stinker. If we can avoid that stinker and just have it be ok then Iran should be in good shape. Panama, Venezuela and Russia were all good tests. I am getting excited for Iran v Serbia and Ukraine, both should be good games.

    Are there any confirmations that Iran is playing either team?

    I haven't heard any confirmations yet but based on the fact that we played Russia, Panama and Venezuela so far I think it's a go. I will let you know, once I hear about any confirmations.

    This month's FIFA rankings decide which pot Iran will be in.


    Will it be pot 3 for first time ever for Iran? Will Iran be among top 24 teams of total 32 teams to qualify?
    Instead of counting teams from top rankings, it is easier to say Iran must avoid being among last 8 teams of the world cup.
    So we need at least 8 teams below us at the group draws.


    So far for Iran:
    Asia (3 teams)- All 3 Asian teams are below Iran (KOR, JPN, KSA)
    Africa (5 teams)- All 5 qualifiying candidates are below Iran for now.
    North America (1 team) - either Panama or USA, both are below Iran.
    Intercontinental A (0 team) - (Oceania vs S. America) NZL are below iran but the other team, the S.Americans, are above Iran, and will must likely also be the team to book ticket for wc (CHI, ARG)
    Intercontinental B (1 team)- (Asia vs N. America) AUS/ SYR and USA/HON/PAN are all below Iran


    So at this moment, 10 teams are below us, which will place us in 3 pot.


    But the problem is this.
    N. American and African teams are very close to Iran (fifa ranking).
    While Iran plays a low ranking point friendly vs Russia, even if Iran wins, the amount of points Iran gains will be dwarfed by the WCQ points N.Americans and Africans gain.


    In order to reach the first world cup Goal of being in pot 3, Lets hope Iran beats Russia, and manage to stay ahead of near rivals of N.America and Africa.

    We got a bit unlucky

    We drew the absolute strongest team from pod 2, Spain
    We drew a medium team from pod 1. Lucky not to get Brazil or Germany, but unlucky not to get Russia or Poland
    From pod 4, we had 4 options. Panama, Serbia, Senegal and Morocco. Panama would have been a lucky draw

    We actually got the next weakest one! We were not that unlucky there either!
