Touching upon Beiranvand’s difficult path to success, it adds, “he has been brilliant in Russia.”

The Guardian report mentions that “saving a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty against Portugal was only one of the highlights as he has produced several high-calibre stops and started Iran’s attacks with his long and accurate throws.”
