Iran Futsal Captain Tayebi Demands More from Teammates

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran futsal captain Hossein Tayebi has urged his teammates to be fully focused on their title aspirations following their 10-1 victory over Chinese Taipei in Group C of the AFC Futsal Asian Cup Kuwait 2022 on Friday.

The win sealed Iran's passage into the quarterfinals, while Chinese Taipei must beat Indonesia, who stunned Lebanon 7-2, on Sunday for a chance to advance.

“After the match, I spoke to the players and told them that we all make mistakes in the game and we should play as a group and not as individuals,” said Tayebi.

“We want to go back to Iran with the title. After our victory against Chinese Taipei, we have four more matches to achieve our target.

“The Saad Al Abdullah Hall (Kuwait) is where we will lift the trophy and it is here where we will create history,” added the two-time AFC Futsal Asian Cup Top Scorer.
