Group D



World Cup participations: 2
Greatest World Cup achievement: none

Iran has played a strong qualification and the world cup draw caused delight in the whole country. They believe to have a serious chance against Mexico and Portugal to go to the last 16 and to be honest, that's not completely impossible.

Playmaker Ali Karimi of Bayern Munich is the star, although he has not made the breakthrough at his club yet. Captain is the old warhorse Ali Daei and with Hashemian and Mahdavikia there are two more acquaintances.

The offence really has potential, but there are worries about the missing international experience of the team.

The odds on Iran as world cup winner were certainly extremely high
- 501.0 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner Iran you get 21.0.
