AFC – DUBAI, The-AFC.com took a look at the players who could make a difference for their teams in Group A over the coming two Matchdays of the 2022 World Cup qualification.

In a team packed to the brim with attacking talent, there is perhaps no Team Melli player in better goalscoring form than FC Porto spearhead Mehdi Taremi.

Pivotal in last month’s 3-0 win over Iraq, his booming header against Liverpool in last week’s UEFA Champions League action was his 51st goal in less than 100 matches since moving to Portugal in 2019 and there is nothing to suggest the 29-year-old striker is even close to slowing down.

Iran is scheduled to meet the UAE in Dubai on Thursday and will host South Korea in Tehran five days later.
