Azmoun returns as Iran beats Bolivia 2-1

Iran defeated Bolivia in a friendly match at Azadi Stadium on 16 October.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh opened up the scoring in the 17th minute to put Iran in front.

Bolivia equalized through Rudy Cardozo when his shot from outside the box beat Alireza Beiranvand in the 51st minute.

And the winning goal was scored by Mehdi Torabi just after the hour mark.

It is now two friendly matches in a row where Torabi has scored the winning goal for Team Melli.

I am glad Iran won but I was glad that Sardar Azmoun returned to Team Melli. I know there are a good amount of Iranian fans that are upset with him, but Sardar is young and I believe he has learned a valuable lesson.

The bottom line is that Sardar has done so much for Team Melli and he always plays with heart when he steps on the pitch.
