Tasnim - Despite having won all three of their games, Iran U-17 coach Abbas Chamanian says that there are still a lot of good teams in the competition.
Iran qualified for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Round of 16 with three wins over Guinea, Germany and Costa Rica.
Chamanian’s boys will face Mexico or Chile in the next stage on Tuesday.
''We have picked up nine out of nine points in the group stages, but the most important thing we must think about from now is the next round'' Chamanian said.
"Indeed, our attack has been great but our defense also deserves all the praise it can get. We have conceded only one goal in the tournament and did not allow any clear opportunities to our opponents, this is something we can build on for our future opponents as well,'' he added.
''We must not forget that we are not the only team that finished with nine points. Winning all three games does not make us automatic title contenders, there are still a lot of good teams that we must respect. However, it is still a very important achievement for the team and players,'' Chamanian concluded.
