Carlos Queiroz Dedicates Qatar Win to Iranian Fans
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Iranian national football team coach Carlos Queiroz has dedicated Iran’s 1-0 win against Qatar to the Iranian fans.
Team Melli advanced to the 2015 AFC Asian Cup quarter-final on Thursday in Sydney’s Australia Stadium thanks to a 52nd minute goal from Sardar Azmoun.
“We defeated a strong team and I dedicate the victory to all Iranian fans, who supported us in the match. They believe in our team and trust us in the Asian Cup,” Queiroz said in the post match news conference.
“We could have scored more goals against Qatar. When my team scores one goal, I would be happy but when my team scores the second goal I would be happier. I would like to score three and four goals,” the Portuguese coach added.
Three-time champion Iran, who began the competition with a 2-0 victory over Bahrain, will play the UAE in the final match of Group C in Brisbane.
Persian Gulf Cup winner Qatar will take on Bahrain in Sydney.
