Coach: Carlos Queiroz

Among the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) teams fighting to get one of the 2018 FIFA World Cup spots, Iran was the first to secure a place to Russia. This is the fifth time they’ve qualified for a World Cup, but was only able to claim one victory against the United States at France 1998. Carlos Queiroz, Iran’s coach, is gunning for a place in the knockout stages and has vowed Iran will “not go to Russia as tourists.”
