Iran make heads turn with Germany demolition

Share

Iran defeated Germany 4-0 on Tuesday to book a place at the FIFAU-17 World Cup Round of 16.

Wuck had expressed concerns about the heat after the Iran match in Goa and coming to Kochi, a venue where teams have suffered from humid conditions, it is not going to get easier for the Germans, especially against Guineans who are used to such conditions back home.

Younes Delfi opened the scoring for the Iranian team in the 6th minute and extended Iran's lead in the 42nd minute. Read Also: Mexico target fragile England defence The early goal seemed to have taken a toll on the European powerhouse as they struggled to keep up with the pace of the Iranians.

Iran's young players delivered a superb performance that will be remembered for long.

Costa Rica, on the other hand, started as one of the favourites to make it through from Group C. They played well against Germany for a major part of the game only to throw in the towel in the dying minutes of the game and let their opponents walk away with their first three points of the tournament. "But right now, we are over it and everyone is looking forward to the Guinea match", German coach Christian Wuck told media after the session. As for Guinea, they need a win to entertain any hopes of qualification after the loss against Iran and the draw against Costa Rica.

Brazil have been in fine form, winning both their encounters against Spain and North Korea to top the group.

Germany, who have qualified for the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup as fifth-place finisher from Europe via a play-off, began their campaign with an unconvincing 2-1 win over Costa Rica before slumping to an embarrassing 0-4 defeat to Iran.

Day five of FIFA Under-17 World Cup brings to us the action from Group C and D. In Group C Costa Rica will take on Guinea and Iran will face Germany.
