Its just hard to be disappointed when you know what to expect, given the recent performances that does not indicate that much improvement. Im not disappointed with the result and match itself, as much as I am with the current state of our football with major problems such as lack in a creative playmaker, defence issues, not to mention stamina/fitness problems. This issue is rooted in our national league at club level. So what can we expect from our national team? Last week we lost against KUWAIT with one of the worst performances that I had the unfortunate to witness, but our performaces against the other teams were not even that good either. Decent at best. Brazil is a world class team (and they did not even give 100 % in this match, from my book). Iran is simply NOT. This is the reality. But its of course regrettable that Iran played such a ugly game passing the ball among themselves in the backline. As if they were trying to keep the score down, or just lacked options and creativity. But the result does not bother me. Its a friendly match. If there is something to be gained and can be learned from this exhibition then hurray. The question is WILL we adress our issues that so increasingly more became evident after WAFF and this friendly? Unfortunately I dont think so.
