    Although Iranian fans are in Persian Hangout (Persian Football Discussion Community), but it is good to have this here as well. we can discuss about World Cup draw, seeding, preparation, World Cup tournaments, squad, etc. here as well.

    We are not favorite in any group, but we really need a very kind draw in order to have chance to compete for reaching round 16 of the World Cup.

    Pot 2: This is the most important pot. I am keep praying we avoid Germany and Netherlands. I am also praying/hoping to avoid Denmark. My preferences are USA and Mexico respectively.

    Pot 1: There are no good pot 1 sides for Iran, but Portugal would be better than the rest.

    Pot 4: My preferences are Ghana and Cameroon respectively.

    How about yours?

    Fair enough.

    Almost same for Japan.

    You guys played greatly against Portugal in both 2006 and 2018 WC.

    Portugal - USA/Mexico - Ghana/Cameroon/Tunisia will be the perfect pairings for you.

    Regard preparation, it will be extremely hard to organize friendly games versus European sides due to Nations League, but we really need to play at least couple friendly versus European sides before the World Cup.

    It seems that at the moment, we should look for teams from CONMEBOL, CONCAFAF, and Africa for friendly games. Also, whoever gets Saudi Arabia in its World Cup group may be interested to play friendly versus us to prepare for their game versus Saudi Arabia. At the same time, whoever gets us may be interested to play friendly versus Saudi Arabia.

    Right.

    Japan and South Korea may co-host friendlies against Brazil and Argentina in a commemoration of 20 years of co-hosting the 2002 WC (providing they will both not be drawn against either Argentina and Brazil).

    On another note, it seems everybody (Japanese, Koreans, and Iranian fans want USA in their group). I think others share the ideat that USA is weakest team in Pot 2.

    I wish all the best to you guys for your preparation. We will have tougher time compare to you for good preparation.

    That is correct. There are a few people who prefer Mexico over USA because of their results in qualifiers and their current form compare to USA but the problem is that Mexico always reach Round 16 in the World Cup and they have very good record against Asian teams. That is why I also prefer USA.

    Regard our current squad,

    1) Abedzadeh showed that he still cannot be trusted as first choice GK.

    2) We need to improve in RB, LB, and Midfield positions more than any other position for the WC.

    3) IMO Skocic should drop Hajsafi and Ansarifard from the squad. He can try the likes of issa Alekasir, Amir Arsalan Motahari, etc. as replacement for Ansarifard.
    I also think Rouzbeh Cheshmi is a good choice to be added to the team again.

    Bro, the game between USA and Iran is an excellent opportunity to show the world again the friendship that the people of those two countries have.

    Iran
    Group B:

    England, Iran, United States, UEFA Path A winners (The winner of Wales vs Scotland/Ukraine)

    It could be better. It could be worse as well.

    Anyway, the draw is done. Now it is time to focus on ourselves/preparation.

    It is as tough as any other group. It is good that this year Iran is not in the group of death. Iran vs USA round II, should determine who advances with England. Navy vet, born and raised but irooni roots go Team Melli
    Goals Mehdi Madavakia, Hamid Estili, side note both got military different

    This is true but sometimes you might not have another choice but to go to an expensive 2nd party. What if they don't have a 3rd draw or are they going to have a 3rd draw?

    Interesting are you sure about that because 1- I haven't heard anything on the news about that and 2 well Iran probably doesn't mind playing Russia but would fifa allow Russia to have a friendly game, even as Russia football union? I do know the only game in the books for Iran so far is Japan.

    Also for anyone who would like to discuss Iran football and have an alternative to PFDC or ISP, well, I decided to create my own Iranian football forum. it is at its infancy but we all have to start somewhere.I would need moderators and writers, specifically on the Farsi-Persian side. Feel free to DM me if interested, hope this is ok with the mods, I can post here.
