Iran’s Arzani Undecided on International Allegiance
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Melbourne City young gun Daniel Arzani has not yet decided which nation he would like to represent at international level, if called up.
Born in Iran, Arzani, 19, is eligible to represent that country as well as Australia.
His consistent ability to wow fans has seen Arzani touted as a possible inclusion into Bert van Marwijk’s plans for the World Cup, with friendlies upcoming this month against Norway and Colombia.
Iran, like Australia, qualified for world sport’s biggest stage in Russia.
“It hasn’t really been a conversation that’s come up yet,” Arzani told Daily Football Show.
“But I think the most important thing for me right now is just to be playing the games. If I don’t do well, then none of that would be a possibility anyway,” he added.
Just the thought of international football, however, was exciting the youngster.
“It’s really exciting, even thinking about it. I’m happy that people are talking about it and that it’s even considered a possibility.
“But it’s just important that I focus on playing the games, focusing week in, week out on performing,” Arzani stated.
