Carlos Queiroz calls up 38 cheetahs for Armenia camp

TEHRAN, Jun. 10 (MNA) – The head coach of Iran’s national football team, Carlos Queiroz, named 38 players to form his squad for the preparatory 10-day trip of the Cheetahs to Armenia.

Alireza Haghighi, Alireza Beiranvand, Mohammadreza Akhbari, Rashid Mazaheri, Danial mahini, Ramin Rezaeian, Pouria Ghafouri, Pejman Montazeri, Morteza Pourali Ganji, Mohammad Tayyebi, Ezzatollah Pourghaz, Jalal Hosseini, Mohammad Hossein Kan’anizadegan, Milad Mohammadi, Ehsan Hajisafi, Mohammad Ansari, Hashem Beikzadeh, Saeid Aghaei, Andranik Teymourian, Omid Ebrahimi, Khosrow Heydari, Darioush Shojaeian, Kamal Kamyabinia, Saeid Ezzatollahi, Mehdi Torabi, Morteza Tabrizi, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Bakhtiar Rahmani, Soroush Rafiei, Ashkan Dejagah, Masoud Shojaei, Vahid Amiri, Ehsan Pahlavan, Rahim Zahivi, Mehdi Taromi, Sardar Azmoun, Karim Ansarifard, and Reza Ghouchanejad, have been invited to the preparatory trip of Iran’s national football team to Armenia by Carlos Queiroz, as the official website of Iran Federation of football announced on Thursday.

Four players of Persepolis, Alireza Beiranvand, Jalal Hosseini, Ramin Rezaeian, and Kamal Kamyabinia are included in a new-look 38-man party - captained by 29-year-old midfielder Ashkan Dejagah- for the preparatory tour of Armenia. This may go head-to-head with Branco’s decision to start Persepolis’s new round of exercises on Saturday and the boss of the reds is expected to postpone the new round of preparation.

Soroush Rafiei, the 26-year-old midfielder of Tractorsazi of Tabriz who had been banned from national team for using a fake military service card, has earned a call-up too. An inclusion that is more of a surprise and it may be a sign that the officials have compromised with the guilty ones or have decided to condone the wrong conducts of young players.

Afshin Peyrovani, Queiroz’s aid, has told the local media that after the friendly matches of the national team against Macedonia and Kyrgyzstan, the authorities decided to let the national players rest and that is the reason why the clubs are not allowed to use their national players.

Peyrovani also recounted that during the ten day trip to Armenia, the national squad will be slated for two friendly matches.
