Of course, the FIFA World Cup 2018 scheduled during this month is a matter of enthusiasm for the players and the football lovers alike. While each squad will leave no stone unturned, the fans expect their favorite team qualifies for the next level.
It is a fact that a majority of the football lovers expected Iran in the World Cup 2018 with their impeccable performance at the qualifying rounds. The unbeaten 10 games and only conceding twice, it was a credit for Iran to have achieved the entry into Russian soil this June 2018.
This achievement would not have been possible without the concerted efforts of Carlos Queiroz, who is the coach for the squad. The 64-year-old requires the credit for the position of the squad it occupies today. The responsibility of the coach is to ensure that the team is reaching the next level in the ensuing fixtures.
Though he is known to be incorrigible in his approach, he should not show his cranky behavior with the players on the field which would be detrimental to the team.
No doubt, the first mention goes to Sardar Azmoun, who is considered as the best striker in Asia. Next comes the name of Reza Ghoochannejihad, who has been instrumental in scoring a host of goals in the recent encounters.
We cannot miss out Mehdi Teremi, who scores a goal when they are in dire need, though there have been some adverse remarks at home.
Similarly, the defender Jalal Hosseini has been a veteran player in the majority of the matches he represented.
It is a fact that football lovers would feel the absence of JAVAD Nekounam and also the midfielder Andranik Teymounrian at the events during FIFA 2018. At the same time, all eyes must be on debutants Saeid Ezatolahi, who is being applauded as the prospective stars of the squad.
No doubt the Julen Lopetegui, who is the coach for the squad has a lot of potentials to guide the team.
The captain Sergio Ramos is indeed an outstanding player who is termed as the bedrock defender on the field.
You cannot undermine the attacking midfield of Andres Iniesta and David Silva. We need to wait and watch whether Pepe Reina to contribute at his representation for the fourth time at the FIFA World Cup.
The skillful play on the field by the Spain squad should eclipse the ignominious exit of the team at World Cup 2014 followed by European Championship 2016.
