That glorious day in June

I remember this time three years ago, we were about to play Iran in Tehran. A few months back we lost to them 4-1 in Tehran, and given the level of confidence they were having the players were predicting a great victory over our team.
I remember one of their newspapers predicting a 7-0 victory. Their coach asked their players to be cautious with the Jordanians but predicted himself a 3-0 victory.

The reason behind this great confidence is that Iran is among the most difficult teams to defeat in their homeland, especially with more than 100,000 spectators cheering for them nonstop in the stands.

This game was very serious for both teams, a world cup qualifier. Iran kept attacking but could not score. Then Anas Zboun entered the pitch , and as usual those 150 cms changed the game. He lead a counter attack and passed a ball to Haytham Shbool..... and the rest was history



We won 1-0, I still cannot believe it.
