Iran striker Mehdi Taremi likely to miss Morocco match

Tasnim – Team Melli striker Mehdi Taremi will likely miss his first World Cup game against Morocco, scheduled for Friday June 15.

Al Gharafa’s striker is considered as one of the best assets of the Iranian team.

The football player sustained an injury in Iran’s last friendly game against Lithuania on June 8.

If his condition does not improve, Queiroz is seriously thinking of replacing him with Reza Ghoochannejhad, the striker of SC Heerenveen.

Taremi told the reporters he suffers an injury against Lithuania but everything is ok at the moment.

Iran has been drawn in Group B along with Morocco, Spain and Portugal.
