though the first half we played was very well, an easy goal scored by both teams at 28 minutes and 36 minutes 8 minutes apart
but the second half bronco didnt sub daei with borhani and didnt put any fresh players in. He also put EVERYONE in defence, it was literally 1-10-0-0 formation. After the managed to get passed the defence once, the score reached 2-1 with 25 minutes left on the clock. Then with the slow reacting Branco, he pulled everyone into forward which resulted in LACK of defence which also resulted in Mexicos easy 3rd goal with a header in the top rigth corner of the net. After all this with 10 minutes left of the clock Borhani came in.
"They came first for the Communists, And I didnít speak up because I wasnít a Communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didnít speak up because I wasnít a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, And I didnít speak up because I wasnít a Jew;
And then... they came for me... And by that time there was no one left to speak up."
Iran self-destructed. It's as simple as that. At this level, you simply cannot afford to take a goal-kick like that. And as for Rezai.. that was terrible control of the ball. Technical inadequacy cost us this match, because until that point we looked good for a draw.
