I remember my first video episode of Team Melli Talk was about the Goalkeeper Situation for the national team of Iran.
After seeing the third goal allowed by Persepolis keeper Alireza Beiranvand against Al Jazira on 7 May, I really am concerned.
I can honestly say that I don’t feel very confident about Beiranvand being Iran’s number one keeper at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
What should Carlos Queiroz do? Is Amir Abedzadeh of Maritimo a good choice? How about Mohammad Rashid Mazaheri of Zob Ahan or Hossein Hosseini of Esteghlal?
We haven’t heard Alireza Haghighi’s name mentioned in a while and he recently just left Swedish club Sundsvall.
The 35-man roster was announced on 13 May by Carlos Queiroz and Haghighi’s name was not on the roster.
Disappointing how Alireza Haghighi’s career has gone downward since 2015.
