The Portuguese head coach of Iran national football team, Carlos Queiroz, says his side is ready to defeat Qatar in Doha. Tomorrow, Qatar will host Team Melli in Doha and both teams need to grab all three points of this match in order to increase their chances for getting qualified for Brazil’s 2014 FIFA World Cup.
“The team is fully prepared to defeat Qatar in upcoming match. Fortunately, all invited players are available to serve the team. I expect to get a good result from this match, because the points are really important for the destiny of Team Melli.” Carlos Queiroz addressed the pre-match press-conference in Qatar.
“This match is important for Iran, but it is far more important for Qataris. There are three more games left in the way of reaching 2014 FIFA World Cup, and we will try to do our best to get qualified for World Cup.” Queiroz added.
Carlos Queiroz also went on to criticize the behavior of Qatari Football Federation toward Team Melli. Qatari side didn’t provide any buses to Iranians for transferring the players from the airport to hotel. “It is disappointing. Qatar will host 2022 World Cup, and they must consider allocating all facilities to visitors.”
Javad Nekounam, the captain of Team Melli, also said that his fellows are looking to grab all three points from the upcoming match.
