Iranian U17 (Nojavonon) team beat Netherlands 1-0 to finish first in Group C. Milad Gharibi scored Iran’s goal in the first half.
This is a significant achievement for the Iranian football since Holland has one of the top youth programs in the world.
Iran’s two central defenders, Goudarzi and Shirazi played a flawless game and may prove to be the stars of this team and among the best in this tournament.
This team can go far!
