Iran’s national football team upsets Madagascar 1-0 in a friendly match at Azadi stadium in Tehran today.
The game was Carlos Quiroz’ first official game as Iran’s national team head coach.
On a weekend full of upsets where Brazil and Argentina were eliminated from Copa America and the Americans were upset by the Japanese in the final of 2011 Women World Cup, Iran managed to narrowly defeat Madagascar in a friendly match!
Yes, they play football in the jungles of Madagascar! Now if we can only find Madagascar on the map!
Iran’s next match is against Maldives (yes, they play football there too) on July 23rd and 28th for the 2014 WC qualifiers.
