Final list of Iran’s Squad to the FIFA World Cup 2014

Iran’s football federation has announced the final list of 24 players , rather than 23 that will be sent to FIFA for the World Cup 2014 . The extra player will be decided between Khanzadeh and Beikzadeh depending on the later’s injury report. Khanzadeh will be accompanying the team in any case, but will not be part of the squad if Beikzadeh recovers in time.

The only surprise omission in this list is Mohammad Reza Khalatbary who did not feature much in the friendly games. Taking into account his pace and explosive runs on the wings, he would have been ideal fit for Queiroz game plan, however , he must have come short in other areas which the Portuguese coach found essential. Sardar Azmoun will be disappointed not to make the list , but on the bright side and as expected the other young and promising forward, Alireza Jahanbakhsh has made it.
