Carlos Queiroz searching for a '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...

Many factors favour South Korea in Asian Cup semi but don't write off Iraq

The 2015 AFC Asian Cup has come to life after Iraq and the United Arab Emirates' shock wins against their much-fancied quarterfinal opponents, Iran and Japan. The question now is: can the West Asian giant-killers keep the fairytale going in Australia?

Iraq face South Korea in the first of the semifinals in Sydney on Monday night.

With both teams having played 120 minutes in their respective quarterfinals, the Koreans will look to make their extra day's rest count.

"We have to play the fast ball,...

Iraq hold nerve in sudden death to defeat Iran in epic Asian Cup QF

Canberra is a quiet kind of place, especially in January when the politicians are on holiday. It's pleasant, green, spacious, with plenty to do, but it is not a city that buzzes. The stadium is still quite a distance from where the action usually is.

But not on this balmy Friday evening when West Asian giants Iran and Iraq came together in a clash that would be too easy to describe as explosive. Shuddering would perhaps be better.

Let's just keep it simple. It was an epic. An instant classic. It...

Joy for Mahmood as Iraq beat Iran in AFC Asian Cup quarterfinal

Iraq striker Younus Mahmood proved he is still a force to be reckoned with in the Asian Cup quarterfinal victory over Iran.

Iran and Iraq set for high-profile Asian Cup quarterfinal showdown

Iraq forward Younis Mahmoud, the hero of the 2007 title triumph, will be hoping to turn the clock back against Iran in the quarterfinal.
