Queiroz selects the roster for the Maldives game
The new Team Melli coach, Carlos Queiroz has announced his latest roster of players for an Austrian camp in Loipersdorf, prior to the Maldives game.
The squad is as follows.
GOALKEEPERSRahmati, Gordan, Haghighi, and Memarzadeh
DEFENDERSMahini, Aghili, Nosrati, J. Hosseini, Heidari, Montazeri, Hajsafi and Pouladi
MIDFIELDERSP. Noori, Hadadifar, Mobaali, Teymourian, Seifi, Karimi, Zareh, Zeniedpour, Baou, Ghazi, Aliasgar, and Afshin
STRIKERSH. Nowroozi, R. Nowroozi, Khalatbari, Ansarifard, Oladi and DaghighiPretty good line up of strikers, methinks. And with the return of injured Gh. Rezaei and Meydavoudi I think we’ll have a very enviable line up of forwards. Iran wil play Maldives in the second round of the Asian 2014 World Cup qualifiers on July 23 and 28, with the winner joining the top 20 teams in Asia in the third round.
