Profile: Karim BAGHERI, #0
Karim Bagheri is one of the true legends of Iranian football.

Bagheri began his football career in his hometown club Teraktor Sazi Tabriz F.C. where he was discovered by Teahrani scouts which lead him eventually to sign for Keshavarz club , one of the more affluent clubs of that era.

Karim Bagheri had an amazing run with Team Melli and freely scoring against the opponents. In the match against Maldive , he managed to score 7 goals out of the 17 to post a world record for a World Cup game.

After a hard campaign he was again one of the stars that lead Team Melli to the World Cup 1998 when he scored the first goal in the famous "Battle of Melbourne" against Australia , when the host was comfortably leading 2-0.
