one attack to get 9 points;

The Iranian national team wants to win against the United Arab Emirates and take the lead in the group stage of the Nations Cup.

According to “Varzesh Se”, the Iranian national football team confirmed its promotion to the round of 16 of the 2023 Asian Cup after two consecutive wins against Palestine and Hong Kong teams and will face Al-Ryan Education City Stadium tonight at 6:30 p.m. The four points go to the Emirates, who will top Group C in the event of a draw, but Amir Qalanewi is aiming for a third win in a row and another strong performance from his team.

The Iranian national football team has scored five goals in the last two matches of the Asian Cup, and tonight they are undoubtedly expecting a worthy performance against the Emirates, and it seems unlikely that they will lose and change their path in the elimination stage, possible confrontation with South Korea . Or not have Japan.

As expected, Amir Qalanewi will use his best players against the UAE and for this purpose Alireza Biranvand will probably be in goal again And he’s trying to keep a clean sheet for the second game in a row.

Seyed Majid Hosseini was in the squad for the last game against Hong Kong but now he is injured and will miss tonight against the Emirates but Shoja Khalilzadeh trained with the players yesterday And it is not unlikely that he can return to composition; If Shuja is not used, Qalanewi will of course have Rozbe Cheshmi Mehre available, who can be used again in the same position as in the last game.


Mohammad Hossein Kananizadegan is the only core of Iran’s midfield defense to have fully participated in the past two games. And tonight against the UAE he is one of the eleven main players playing alongside Shoja Khalilzadeh or Roozbe Cheshmi.

In the first game of the Nations Cup against Palestine, Ramin Rezaian came on in the 81st minute in place of Sadegh Moharrami, was fully involved in the game against Hong Kong and will probably be in the starting line-up this evening. And it is predicted on the left Ehsan Hajsafi returned to the team after one regular appearance and one substitute appearance and be the captain of Iran against the Emirates.

Saeed Ezzatullahi came on as a substitute in the last game against Hong Kongbut it is predictable that he will return to the team tonight and play in the defensive midfielder position for Iran against the Emirates.

As always, Amir Ghalenoui enjoys the trust of Saman Qudous And while the game is a ceremonial one for Iran, it is unlikely that he will leave the starting XI and start the job all over again against the Emirates.


Alireza Jahanbakhsh was an integral member of the national team in the previous two games However, in the final moments of the game against Hong Kong he left the field due to injury, but has been in good form in training over the past few days and is unlikely to give up his place to other competitors such as Ali Gholizadeh.

Mehdi Qaidi has been the star of the Iranian national team in the last two games, scoring against Palestine and Hong Kong And he also provided an assist, which he hopes he gets such an opportunity against the Emirates tonight with his ever-present presence. Particularly due to his presence in this country’s league, he is familiar with the playing style of opposing defenders.


Mehdi Tarimi has not yet managed to score at the 2023 Asian Nations Cup But he wants to do so in the game against the Emirates tonight and with his renewed presence in the team he has great motivation to make such an event possible.

Sardar Azmoun did not feature in the previous two matches due to his late inclusion in the Iranian national team camp And he only played one game and managed to score against Palestine, but as can be seen from training, Mehdi Tarimi’s pair will probably be in attack tonight and he will have a chance to score again against the Emirates.

The composition of the Iranian national team against the UAE is expected to consist of the following:

Alireza Biranvand, Mohammad Hossein Kanaanizadegan, Shoja Khalilzadeh (Ruzbe Cheshmi), Ramin Rezaiyan, Ehsan Hajsafi, Saeed Ezzatollahi, Saman Qudous, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Mehdi Qaidi, Mehdi Tarimi and Sardar Azmoun.
