The Dubai event was held following the culmination of the Intercontinental Beach Soccer Cup in the same city where Iran finished third after defeating Russia 4-2 in the bronze medal match on Nov. 4.
It was a revenge match for Iranian players as they had lost to Russia in a close encounter 3-4, in group stage, and had to confront Brazil in the semifinals where the Asian side was defeated 4-6.
After downing Iran, Brazil beat Portugal 2-0 in the final game to win the title for the third time (second year in a row).
After the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, the Intercontinental Cup is the biggest tournament in the international beach soccer calendar. It has been held annually since 2011.
Iran was not among the top four teams in the first two editions, but in 2013 the national team won the title after beating Russia 4-3. In 2014, Iran finished fourth following a 0-3 defeat against Portugal; in 2015, came third after a win over Egypt; and last year was the runner-up, losing the final game to Brazil 2-6.
