188 Views Iranian legend Mehdi Pashazadeh had some words to share after Iran’s victory against South Korea.

After Iran’s excellent display of football against South Korea, former Team Melli defender and current Rah Ahan coach, Mehdi Pashazadeh expressed, “We played very organized, and in my opinion this is the best team Carlos Queiroz has put together. We were so good that we did whatever we wanted against South Korea. We defended well, we attacked well, and we created chances well. Whoever watched the game will agree that we didn’t allow South Korea to do anything. Perhaps, if Sardar Azmoun didn’t lose his chances, we could have scored two or three more goals.”

The former Esteghlal and Admira Wacker player added, “In an interview three years ago, I had said that we are not good offensively and that don’t defend in a logical way, but to be fair we were truly flawless (against S. Korea); we were at a European level. If you look at the stats, you can see that we didn’t give them a chance to do anything, although they have 15 legionnaires playing in top European clubs.”
