    Alipour may get the call if he continue to perform well, he has a great stamina, just like Kaveh. The issue is we have too many options up front or even as wingers.

    As much as fans like to see the up tempo games, we will have a hard time winning anything in the worldcup if we get trapped into an attack mode strategy. Watching the Iran-Russia game, we were vulnerable the moment we decided to switch to a free flowing game in the 2nd half. Same thing with Syria. We are strong when we slow down the pace, play a physical and disruptive game with our DM and rely on mistakes from our opponent. The Argentina game is a perfect example, and had we been awarded a penalty kick, who knows what could have happened. Against Bosnia, well, we all know how that turned out
    In one sense, I couldn't agree with you more... we are a counter attacking team. It's what we do best and it's how we get our results.

    On the other hand, we have to have a plan B. You reference the Bosnia game. We had to win that and you don't go into must win games setting up the way we did against Argentina.

    3rd place is not a success for us. I'd rather we finish 4th having made an effort to qualify in the final game rather than draw every game playing defensively without taking risks. New Zealand did that in 2010. What do they have to show for it.

    I don't expect much difference in the way we will play in comparison to the 2014 World Cup, especially in our opening game.

    We are too vulnerable when we play an open game and in the first game this is a suicidal thing to do. Theoretically, if you get 1 point from your first game you are still in the race for a 2nd spot in the group till the last match day.

    We got a very diffrent team now compared to when Cq took over TM. We dont nere to play ultra defensive anymore with the player we got. Altough cleensheets are important i Think we can play the same game with one less DM 4-1-4-1 is the same as 4-2-3-1 its all about tactics. . I rate this TM very high we got the players. the key Will be stamina to play för 90 min.
