Thailand teenager Supachok sparks Buriram as coach Ghotbi exits

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and John Wilkinson discuss the latest happenings in Thai football, where Buriram fired coach Afshin Ghotbi and Charyl Chappuis has returned to the Thailand squad.

Narubadin Weerawatnodom hailed Buriram United's fighting spirit as a 2-1 victory at Army United took them a step closer to clinching third spot in the Premier League of Thailand (PLT).

However, the reigning champions will need a new head coach to take them over the line after the sensational announcement of Afshin Ghotbi's departure following his side's win.

Elsewhere, Bangkok United dropped what could be a crucial two points as they drew 1-1 at Nakhon Ratchasima, while league leaders Muang Thong...

Iran's Sardar Azmoun has the potential to become better than Ali Daei

Sardar Azmoun is one of the top young players in the world.

Nobody has scored more international goals than Iran legend Ali Daei. Indeed, the image of the striker wheeling away in celebration is forever stuck in the memory of a generation of fans in Asia.

Daei, who deserves his global status, found the net an amazing 109 times in 149 games before his international retirement in 2006. It is a record that could last forever, though it could also be broken by a young compatriot.

Sardar Azmoun has some time to go before we can think about records, but the 21-year-old...

Iranian giants Persepolis' top five magic moments in history

Persepolis are one of the most well-supported clubs in Iran.

They're nine-time champions of Iran and one of the biggest clubs in Asia. Persepolis not only have millions of supporters in their homeland, but they're also followed by the majority of Iranians living abroad.

Here are Persepolis' five greatest moments, according to ESPN FC:

1. That goal in 2008

The cliché goes that if you wrote this as a movie script it would be dismissed as too far-fetched. But no, anyone with any sense of drama and excitement would start casting immediately.

Which actor...

Carlos Queiroz looks for 'miracle' as Iran target World Cup return

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz is preparing to guide Team Melli to their second straight WC ahead of Thursday's qualifier vs. Guam.

Carlos Queiroz never seems to age, with only a lengthening CV providing proof of passing time.

It makes for impressive reading, but the 62-year-old still wants to do more. "I am attracted to the idea of taking four different national teams to a World Cup because only one or two guys have done that and it would be nice for my coaching career," Mozambique-born Queiroz told ESPN FC.

It would be quite a feat, but at the moment the Portuguese coach is focusing on taking Iran -- his third national team...

Japan, Iran, Qatar keep Asian flag flying after Australia's heroics

A new-look Japan took the field on Friday night in Valid Halilhodzic's first game in charge, yet it was the old guard who came off the bench in Oita to secure a 2-0 win over Tunisia. It was a solid result and a satisfactory performance.

The Bosnian, who led Algeria to the last 16 at the 2014 World Cup, had promised to shake up a team that has looked in need of exactly that over the past few months. There were only two survivors from the 11 that started the last game, the quarterfinal of the 2015...
