Beikzadeh Makes Final Iran Squad

Hashem Beikzadeh

Hashem Beikzadeh has overcome a troublesome calf problem to feature in Iran’s 23-man FIFA World Cup squad.


FIFA published the finalised squads for each nation on Thursday, ending any doubt over Beikzadeh’s involvement at the Brazil showpiece.

Iran had previously named a 24-man squad, with Mohammad Reza Khanzadeh on stand-by for coach Carlos Queiroz.

Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Nigeria await Iran in Group F at the World Cup.

Queiroz’s men face the African nation in their first match, to be played in Curitiba on June 16.
