coaching staff Tahmasebi & associates
U15 best Players are Asadabadi ( #11 team C) and Nokhodkar ( #10) both play for Saipa u16.
Asadabadi & Nokhodkar played for TM U16 months ago during U16 Championship ( iran lost in Final to Iraq by PK).
i doubt they will be able to play again for U16 games.
Will they wear UHL, Givova, or Adidas?
