Congrats to our boys as It was not a walk in the park as many would have thought... and the main point here is that Iran has to overcome their mental fears and deficits that had previously made them lose to China most of the times as China had a mental superiority over Iran due to the fact that they have defeated us more often. But this time coming back from a set down especially after recent Asian championship and the recent strong showings against the real big boys of Volleyball, was all we needed to clear our minds and understand that we ARE the best in Asia and with this mind-set we could continue our dominance in Asia for years to come. I salute the coach as well because Iran's defense was really great. Now lets just concentrate to defeat the two underdogs and go to the Olympics.
Iran's toughest Asian opponent has been defeated. Now Iran has to beat Japan and Australia and we will be in the olympics.
Next game on Monday vs Australia.
Its not that simple. The games against the non-Asian teams count as well. Iran must beat the Asian teams along with Venezuela, Puerto Rico and Serbia. Serbia will be the toughest. Australia and Japan can not be taken lightly.
