Ok, now looking at Iran's squad the result is not that bad, Iran had a pretty new and young squad for this competition(other than Abedvali), Russia in other hand came with a strong squad. Now i don't mind this defeat at all, this competition should usually be a preparation for World Champs

“We came to Iran to make up for last year’s defeat in the World Cup final. The Iranian team was young but motivated and all the matches were tough for us.” said Russia head coach Gogi KOGUASHVILI

Few wrestlers such as Gerai in 71, Ghaderian in 80 and Abdevali's younger brother Saman in 59 looked promising, specially Ghaderian who beat the world champ.

Dam tough loss to Russia but Russia has a great Greco team and we were always meh, hit or miss in Greco. I am waiting for Based on Babr's reports we have a few promising young guys in Greco Roman. I am not ready to give up at least Iran put up a fight with Russia losing 5-3 is not like you got worked, the Russian coach even gave them ups, btw good sportsmanship by the Russian coach.
