Tehran Times - Iran national football team coach Carlos Queiroz has announced his 24-man squad for the 2018 World Cup.

It seems there is no place on the plane to Russia for Persepolis captain Jalal Hosseini and Esteghlal winger Vouria Ghaffouri.

These two players as well as Esteghlal keeper Hossein Hosseini and Charleroi striker Kaveh Rezaei are on a four-man standby list.

The final squad will be named by June 4.

Team Melli will travel to Istanbul on Monday to hold a training camp in the European country. The Persians will face Turkey football team on May 29 in a friendly match as part of preparation for the 2018 World Cup.

Iran have been drawn in Group B of the 2018 World Cup along with Morocco, Spain and Portugal.

The Iran national football team will open the campaign with a match against Morocco at Saint Petersburg on June 15.

Great squad. By far the best Iran team in decades. Jalal Hosseini is too slow for the World cup. Kaveh Rezaei is the only player that should of made the list.
