Iran’s national football team won over Uzbekistan in a friendly match at Azadi Stadium in Tehran on Saturday.
It was the last of Team Melli’s games at home as it prepares for the upcoming World Cup in Russia.
Rouzbeh Cheshmi’s 17th minute effort secured Iran a 1-0 over Uzbekistan as Carlos Queiroz’s men kick-started their final phase of preparations, IRNA reported.
It has been two weeks since the beginning of the national squad’s training sessions for the World Cup. Due to the fact that players were playing in the league games, they could not attend sooner.
So it resulted in the lack of discipline in the beginning of the game but the team soon closed ranks in defensive and offensive situations.
