    with CQ we have been to 2 back to back world cup, could we say this is harder than 3 consecutive asian cups?if 2 back to back world cup qualifiers is bigger and harder can we say this is the golden period of TM football?

    Winning the Asian cup is harder than qualifying for the world cup.

    That should be enough to answer your question.

    Three Asian Cup Championships. Especially now that 4.5 teams from Asia make it to the World Cup while only one team can/could be the Asian Champion.
    I went to Sharif University. I'm a superior genetic mutation, an improvement on the existing mediocre stock.

    Both answers above are very logical. I want to make some additions. Back then, it was harder to qualify for the world cup. AFC and OFC had only one spot. We didn't enter 1970, we probably would have qualified if we did. In 1974, from what heard we had an unlucky first leg semi-final game against Australia and lost it 3-0. In the return leg, we won 2-0 and that was not enough. Iran was a powerhouse in 1970s. There was a huge gap. The B team was able to beat any other Asian team.
    Anyway, I think the team we had in the late 90s and early 2000s was much stronger than this team. Australia was a superb team and we eliminated them. Some might say we were lucky but, we were very unlucky not to qualify from the group and the playoff against Japan. I don't even want to talk about 2002 (that Bahrain game). We could have eliminated Ireland if Karimi didn't miss those two one on ones in Dublin.
    The team we have now is good but not the best.

    For me winning a silverware is a more special occasion that gives more memories than qualifying especially if you follow a big team that is expected to qualify.

    There are some qualifying moments like yours vs Australia or England vs Croatia that are an ever lasting memory for the fans but a title win is memorable every time.

    I don't think when you guys booked your place for the last world count as the top three memorable games of Iran ?

    the reason i am comparing is because back in the late 60s to end of 70s, there were not alot of strong asian teams, and we won 3, but the 1970 world cup ,1974 world up we failed to qualify. however now there is more spots, however now teams have improved and is not as easy as long time ago. that is my atgument i believe qualifying for world cup is harder and is a bigger achievment.

    We didn't enter the 1970 World Cup qualifiers. We were in the round of 16 of the 1978 World Cup.

    3 AC .… hands down & without a second wasted


    Now, if you had said 2 consecutive round of 16 WC, then I'd have chosen that.
    but mere qualifying for WC, vs 3 championships? AC
