    unnecessary nervousness and unnecessary emotion. Him and Hajsafi both play asabani and weird, and it impacts their technical performance big time.

    In general, I would say there are two tactics we can adopt with the lineup I posted.

    One is, building through iraqi press, by using Ebrahimi, Majid, PAGs passing qualities and giving shorter balls to strong carriers, Gholizadeh and Nourollahi. They can drive team forward. Then the combination of Kaveh, Taremi, Azmoun can be fed and combine well between each other, which I think we all can agree these three have the technical capacity and footballing IQ to do well vs most opposition (let alone IRaq).

    Another tactic to use, is more of a long ball tactic, similar to Zenit. Majid, PAG, Milad (our best bets for accurate long balls from the back) can target Sardar and Kaveh, both of whom link play excellently and are strong on aerials. The key to this tactic is having Taremi, Gholizadeh, and Nourollahi well positioned and aggressive to get the knockdowns, and from there combine quickly with the forwards and advance to goalscoring positions.

    Im not fully confident with Gholizadeh, Nourollahi building from the back yet, in such a crucial game, although I think in the long run it would be a good tactic for TM to adapt in general. I am confident in Azmoun and Kavehs abilities to link play and win aerials vs Iraqi defenders, as I am confident in Taremi's ability to connect to these knockdowns well. Key here is getting gholi and nourollahi to be well positioned to help with knockdowns as well. Once ball is under control in these attacking areas, then the qualities of Sardar,Kaveh,Taremi, Gholizadeh, and nourollahi who has shown impressive offensive skills for TM vs South Korea and Bahrain can take over. Key is ensuring that the long passes connect and they get the opportunity to do the damage enough times.

    Hopefully Wiltits doesnt go with the tactic of 4-2-4 and building our entire offensive game plan and ball advancement off dribbling, decision making, and offensive runs of Milad Mohammadi and Ramin rezaeian, two relatively weak technical players with ball at their feet, isolated in low wide areas with no support from mids or forwards anywhere in sight. That would be a mistake and lead to a certain loss, havent seen a more clueless gameplan in international football (seriously, I cant ever remember such a tactic being used. Maybe teams like liverpool who has fantastic full backs like Alexander arnold and robertson can build offensive plays through them, not us LOL).
