Carlos Queiroz Takes Second Chance With Iran

In contrast to four years ago, Queiroz will not have an emotional reaction from fighting against his former home team, Portugal. This time, Iran will face the US, which has actually doubled their enthusiasm.

Soccer Football - World Cup - Group B - Iran vs Portugal - Mordovia Arena, Saransk, Russia - June 25, 2018 Iran's Karim Ansarifard scores their first goal from the penalty spot.

DOHA, KOMPAS – Iran coach Carlos Queiroz is very excited ahead of his team's final World Cup Group B match the against the United States, to be held at 2 a.m. Western Indonesia Time (WIB) on Wednesday (30/11/2022) at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha. The Portuguese strategist is on the verge of making history for Team Melli if he can finish the group stage with a win.

At Russia 2018, Queiroz came close to advancing Iran to the big 16 for the first time. However, his side could only draw with Portugal 1-1. Iran's big chance to win failed to produce a goal through striker Mehdi Taremi in the 5 minutes of extra time, even though he had faced off Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio before.
