Looking forward to this one. I hope we do not get to tough of an opponent in our group!
Also nice to see that we're not in POT 4!
That by itself is a huge huge power move by TM!

Iran chances might not be very big to make it to next round(even I really wish Iran would make it)

well this year the top teams might be following teams:

A) Brazil (their chaotic Problems of 2014 seems to be solved)
B) Germany ( a super smart coach and experienced team)
C) France and Spain are back to their good forms
D) Portugal should never be underestimate

so if Iran would be in a group with any of These teams than it might be very hard to even dream of a possible qualifications for 2.round

Ideally Iran would face argentina from pot 1 (Argentina seems to not be in their best forms and even Messi is a very good player, but outside Barcelona he is less efficient (I still think Pele and Maradona were more outstanding than MEssi, since they were in any team outstanding, while Messi really Needs a perfect structure around himself to be a real game changer (even today forwards are lot better protected by new rules comparing to Pele orMaradona, which often heaviely were injured by defenders)

if you look at the current 4 pots.. it would be the best for IRAN to face Argentina or Belgium from Pot 1. and from POT 2 Peru would be cool (memories on 1978) and from POT 4 Panama or Australia

in such group IRAN would have some realistic chances for making to 2. round but it would be a nightmare to face Brazil and Germany from pot 1 and than have Spain or Croatia from Pot 2


But to be realistic I think the chances for IRAN are small to make it to second round, but I would love to be proven wrong and such miracle would be of course amazing

Felt like a punch in the gut when i heard them call out Iran for Group B but still can't wait to watch the matches :irani:
Will be good to see how we perform against them.

Ohhh boy! :eek:

Well well folks! :eek:

I think the feeling among Iranian fans is along the lines of feeling gutted. BUT if we fear any team, why even come to the World Cup? This is the stage to play the best in the World.

Having said that, the majority of viewers see us as a weaker link than Morocco. Performing well may not equate to advancing but I trust our TM will not make it easy for these 3 teams. Let's give them hell!

Actually, the frustrating part for me was KSA getting the opening match with the hosts?! My goodness, talk about luck. Already a twitter storm talking about the shit of an opener. http://www.irankicks.com/ikboard/images/icons/icon11.gif

Honestly and realistically I doubt we will, however I have always believed in miracles, especially when it comes to TM haha. We have a very slim chance of making it to the next round.

The best case scenario would be Spain's slip up in their first 2 matches (Highly unlikely, but again not impossible).

I am just hoping that Portugal by their last match against us, have already secured their first spot in the group, so that they may rest some of their key players, such as Ronaldo against us. But again these are all over-optimistic speculations.

Nonetheless I hate giving up, and hope TM mentality would be the same!
