World Cup Stories : Chapter 9

WRITTEN BY JAMES MONTAGUE PRODUCED BY TIFO STUDIOS

Every World Cup qualification has its stories and so far we have heard amazing tales from Iceland (the smallest nation to ever make it), Panama (who overcame the murder of one of their players to also make their debut) and Egypt (a team that has been on a twenty year journey that has seen revolution and counter revolution play its role).

But for arguably Asia’s best team, World Cup qualification was something of a breeze. Iran were the third team to qualify for Russia 2018, after the hosts and Brazil.
