Iran National Football Team
Iran v Lebanon Football Match – 06.02.2013 – Asian Cup Qualification Group B Match Preview
Iran v Lebanon Asian Cup Qualification Group B Football Match will be in 06.02.2013 at Tehran, Iran. Iran National Football Team haven’t got good and expected results in 2012 but I still believe that they are one of the strongest teams in Asia. In 2012 Iran 2 wins 2 loses and a draw in World Cup Qualification group. They have met with Lebanon in an away match and they have lost against them 0-1. That was only win of Lebanon in WQ. I believe it was just an accident for Iran. Portuegese head coach Carlos Queiroz has called-up ideal squad of Iran for this match. Just 29 years old experienced goalkeeper Mehdi Rahmati haven’t called-up. He had capped 74 times for Iran National Football Team. I think Alireza Haghighi from Rubin Kazan will replace him in this match. Alireza Haghighi capped 5 times for Iran.
Lebanon National Football Team hadn’t good performance in 2012 as same as Iran and they got their only victory against Iran in home. That was a lucky win against Iran and Lebanon scored first goal against Iran in their history. Youssef Mohamad is the most important player of Lebanon National Football Team and he will play in this match. He is playing in defender position.
