#3 Morocco 0-1 Iran ~ Group B

Postby Puff Daddy on Wed Jun 13, 2018 6:56 am

Or Burnley v Bournemouth

Morocco are a bit like Burnley, difficult to break down, whereas Iran are a bit like Bournemouth, enjoying the experience, but not likely to trouble the big guns

This is the game we've all been waiting for.

Thanks to bloody work this'll be the first one I get to see, if I can get to the pub quick enough.

My dream team is reliant on an Iran clean sheet! Come on the Princes of Persia!

Iran conceded twice in their qualifiers and Morocco concede zero in theirs. Both teams solid defensively, i think this will weirdly be a goal fest. 4-3 Morocco.

Sardar Azmoun of Iran is definitely worth looking out for.

Very good striker imho, would love him over the hammers.

Women are not allowed to go and watch football matches in Iran. :shock:

Therefore imho Iran should not be allowed to compete in the World Cup.

The commentary team here in America is so damned cringeworthy. don't usually mind our announcers, but these.... lordy. Might have to find a Mexican feed.

Hang on. You just started another thread moaning about how the cameras at the world cup are no longer able to objectify female spectators. Yet you want Iran banned from the World Cup because of how they treat females? :P

I'm deaf in one ear, but is that Dowie co-commentating.

Sam Matterface the commentator, is the best in the business imo, describes the game brilliantly.

Believe you're right about the Rocket Scientist. Decent commentary from both so far.

No hammer1972, I personally don't care if "attractive" women in the crowd are not shown, I think their logic however is silly. Who on earth would be offended by that.

But there is a big difference between that and what Countries like Iran are doing.

Russian security has been very lax. Vuvuzelas have been allowed into the stadium.

Lacking a bit of finesse in the final third, I think it's fair to say.
