well that was too easy, but I was expecting only "one tough match" which happened yesterday. I knew they will play 100% today.
I think if you consider the whole Olympic cycle, Iran was better than other Asian teams and deserved the quota without any doubt.
but I hope Ghafour fully recovers for the Olympics, the opposite position was the weak link in this tournament, even though I really can't understand why Kolakovic played with Mahmoudi in last 2 matches, he used to be a very good player, but he is overweight and out of shape, I know experience matters in crucial matches but he was really bad, Yali couldn't be any worse.
I really think Iran will be much stronger if Fayazi's reception can be improved. Of course, Ghafour could help the offence.
China have been losing to Iran for 8 years, not a tough match to be expected.
