The last time around at the FIFA Futsal World Cup Iran achieved their best ever result, finishing third! This will be the eighth total and consecutive Futsal World Cup for Iran which is a statement on its own. Iran qualified for the Futsal World Cup in Lithuania as the best-ranked Asian team. The Mohammad Nazemosharia team seems ready to punch its way through to the later stages of the championship and then anything is possible. A team to keep a very close eye on!
