Carlos Queiroz insists that Iran 'will not go to Russia as tourists'

Serdar Azmoun and Mehdi Taremi scored in each half to punch Iran's ticket to the 2018 World Cup.

Carlos Queiroz has been making history this week with Iran, and he wants to do so again next summer.

On June 12, Team Melli, as the national team is known, qualified for the World Cup -- the first time they'll be in back-to-back competitions -- and now their sights are set on a debut appearance in the knockout stages.

Not long before midnight at the iconic Azadi Stadium in Tehran, the Mozambique-born manager was thrown into the air by his squad of Iranian players after they had defeated Uzbekistan...

Iran striker scores outrageous goal at Beach Soccer World Cup

As you may or may not be aware, the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup was wrapped up over the weekend when Brazil secured their 14th overall title with a 6-0 drubbing of Tahiti in Sunday's final.

However, the highlight of the latter stages came in the third-place playoff between Iran and Italy, in which striker Mohammad Mokhtari lit up the match with a truly audacious overhead kick.

Having previously come close with the exact same set-piece, Mokhtari latched onto a long throw from his goalkeeper to power...

Iran striker Reza Ghoochannejhad has scored 13 league goals in 22 matches for Heerenveen his season.

Last Sunday was memorable for Iran's football fans around the world. In the Eredivisie, two top-six teams were lining up, with both featuring a striker from the West Asian nation. Alireza Jahanbakhsh was in AZ Alkmaar's attack, while Reza Ghoochannejhad was leading the line for SC Heerenveen. The former was on the winning team while the latter ended up on the scoresheet.

Iran have been Asia's top-ranked side for four years, and are well on course for a fifth World Cup appearance in 2018. "Team Melli,"...

Carlos Queiroz opens up on Iran, World Cup qualifiers and Branko Ivankovic

Carlos Quieroz
Carlos Queiroz resigned from the Iran national team manager's job on Saturday.

Iran have been the top-ranked Asian nation, according to FIFA, for four years. They were unbeaten in 2016 and sit on top of Group A in the final round of qualification for the 2018 World Cup, well-placed to secure back-to-back finals places for the first time.

But coach Carlos Queiroz has just resigned and the situation surrounding the national team is febrile. Not for the first time, in either case. This is different, however, insists the coach who took the job in 2011.

The former Real...

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...
