Iran Loses to Turkey 2-1 in Friendly

Iran produced a fighting performance as it went down 2-1 to Turkey in a 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia warm-up friendly match at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium in Istanbul on Monday.
Cenk Tosun, of English Premier League club Everton, fired a brace but Carlos Queiroz and his players were pleased with their performance, the AFC reported.
Iran, Asia’s top ranked team, suffered an early blow as Tosun fired Turkey ahead after just six minutes, beating Rouzbeh Cheshmi before unleashing a powerful shot which found the back of the net.
Nine minutes later it was Yusuf Yazici attacking Beiranvand’s goal but his shoot was perfectly saved.
