Queiroz: Grouping with Argentina, Nigeria, Bosnia, chance for Iran’s progress

TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iran’s Portuguese head coach Carlos Queiroz said Iran’s grouping with Argentina, Nigeria and Bosnia and Herzegovina is an ‘honor’ for Iranian football, calling it a chance for making progress.

“This is an honor. We should enjoy it now. We should face against the best teams of the world and it is a great chance to make progress and show that we are now a better team,” Queiroz said.

He has already said that Iranian players should face players like Lionel Messi not J Song Park in the World Cup.

Iran will play against Nigeria on June 16. It then faces against Argentina and Bosnia and Herzegovina respectively on June 22 and June 25.
