The Coach

CARLOS QUEIROZ
CARLOS QUEIROZ

The vastly experienced Portuguese coach will be in the dugout for a third FIFA World Cup, having led his native country in 2010 and Iran in 2014. Queiroz, who also won two FIFA U-20 World Cup titles with Portugal, oversaw a near-flawless Russia 2018 preliminary campaign, with Iran the first Asian team to qualify.

The Star

SARDAR AZMOUN

Touted as the heir to Iran goalscoring icon Ali Daei, striker Azmoun has enjoyed prolific form for his country since bursting on to the scene at the 2015 AFC Asian Cup. Something of a poster-boy among supporters of Team Melli, the silky-skilled Azmoun plays his club football for Russian side Rubin Kazan.
