Iranian Reaction To The Nigeria – Iran Draw #Brazil2014

share on:

While Nigerians were very unhappy with the draw and lashed out on social media (Check out ), Iranians were very content with the goalless draw and were heaping praises on their team  for the most part. Going through the Persian Football Forum, I saw comments like:

Husseini: Good defense, but Heydari couldn’t match Nigeria’s physical shape. I don’t blame Ashkan because he had n0 help on the counters, although he lost the ball a lot.

Iran needs to open up more in order to get three points from Bosnia.

Rezabmehr: I think we have if not the best but one of the best defenses in the WC. We were organized and did not allow any plays develop for Nigeria. Boys did well and Nigeria really was frustrated and started playing lousy in second half. We had our chances and could not capitalize.

Persian-eagle-13: we did well, we needed point from this game with we did. now we can focus on recover and next game

Gijscoman: I’ve got mixed feelings about this match. On the one hand, it’s one point and a clean sheet! On the other hand, Iran had the best chances. Nigeria was awful and winning this game could’ve brought Iran to the next round. Btw. I was really disappointed in Dejagah and also Nekounam disappointed me a bit. Haghighi wasn’t really great, but did what had to be done. The defence played well, though! Very well! I think that I am a Hosseini fan now. As many have already mentioned in the other discussion, Teymourian was a beast! He made me remember Van Bommel of the Netherlands. No fear for playing rough! He is a great player and really important for the team!
The attack wasn’t as strong as I had hoped, though. Gucci is not to blame, as he was standing there alone. Hajsafi and especially Dejagah made it
impossible to perform well in the attack.
Personally, I think CQ should’ve made changes a bit earlier. But I don’t want to start negativity about CQ!

gol_kuchik: Hats off to Quiroush for an excellent defense. Nigeria created only 2 goal scoring opportunity, which thankfully they did not capitalize. My only grip is why not use all 3 subs. Other than that very happy with outcome. This should solidify our defence hopefully against Argentina as well.

LiverpoolFC: What a frustrating match we just couldnt string two passes together, we needed to start Ali Reza Jahanbakhsh from the beginning i felt we didnt
have enough creativity from word go

arseces: Congrats everyone for the great performance , thank you cq and players especially ando and pooladi for his ultra iranian gheyrat

Taz: So bleeping proud of our boys. That was one of the
best tactical performances you’ll see in a long time. Every second went according to plan. Sure, shame we couldn’t get the goal and we were poor in possession numerous times but the one thing we’ve been working towards and focussing on was our defensive shape, organisation and discipline and we absolutely smashed it. They didn’t get a sniff and we had the best chance of the match. Hopes of qualification coming down to the Bosnia game is fine, we can now have confidence that our defence really is a world class unit. And we’ll make things difficult for Argentina.

Iman_Joon: Teymourian… wow what a warrior. Best today, he really showed them

persianballer: Terrible game, we played Nigeria as if it was Argentina and you guys are happy. This was Nigeria FFS, they’re poo! Also, Heydari was awful, he was so slow.

Soroush-IK: I’m satisfied. 0-0 against african champions Nigeria is a good result. I was hoping for a 2-1 victory but we have more points than the world camps Spain and Bosnia.

Hosseini: Good defense, but Heydari couldn’t match Nigeria’s physical shape. I don’t blame Ashkan because he had 0 help on the counters, although he lost the ball a lot. Iran need to open up more in order to get three points from Bosnia. 

AliCarbon: Great defense. Pouladi was outstanding out of a class D line. AShkan seemed demotivated.. .. Heydari is not in form. Good effort by Reza (Gucci). And don’t start name calling but the referee was more harsh on TM than SEs.

Many people thought that Nigeria would be beat Iran on strength and endurance, but it was the other way around. Just that is already a big victory

Dejagah: I was pleased with our overall play. We defended amazingly well, Pouladi saved me from a few heart attacks. I disliked how we gave up possession easily sometimes increasing the pressure on us. From an attacking sense we were obviously limited but Reds did well considering what he was provided with. From my POV Ashkan wasn’t very good, he gave up possession very easily sometimes trying to dribble and getting crowded out. Queiroz was right to sub him out. We started out very nervy and on edge but once we got used to the pace and the tempo we played reasonably well. I’ve had to take a couple paracetamols , I was so stressed and I had a few mini heart attacks during the game. I need to lie down 

O-ZoNe: Haghighi was very good, a bit shaky once in a while but nothing to complain about. Was very disappointed with Nekounam, I thought he was nervous from start to finish, and kept smacking under the ball. He did not command the midfield like I expected from him. Teymourian had to run his a$$ off as a result, and Dejagah was muffed out very easily. Defense was rock solid, very impressed. Gucci was Canadian TV’s man of the match, and with the little service he got, he did well. I would have liked to seen ARJ and Masoud in earlier, maybe 10-15 min left in game. I thought they had some subtle impact, and ARJ brought much needed pace. 

Camran khan: Defense was really good, especially Pouladi, who most of us doubted, damesh garm!
DEJAGAH AKA our best player was awful…Nekounam, with so many years in La Liga, playing in a previous world cup, being our captain, was more nervous than anyone I had seen.. wtf.. not the way a captain should be..Teymourian was a beast, ran like a motherfvcker..
