Following good results in last year's futsal tournaments, Iran's futsal team has been chosen by Futsalplanet as the best national team of the world in 2009.
The "Persian Kings" demonstrated a good performance last year and tied 2-2 with the world powerhouse Brazil.
"We're saying nothing new if we
mention the Iranians dominance in the Asian continent; the Persian Kings keep on
denying victory to Japan, Thailand, Uzbekistan and all the other opponents with
ambitious intentions. Iran gained a new role in worldwide futsal, starting with
the World Cup 2008 and going on with brilliant results last year. Iran wants
more. New names of young and talented players keep popping out on the
international stage. Great expectations." Futsalplanet wrote in a statement.
