Lebanese coach Theo Buecker has said that his team has no chance to beat Iran in its away game; however, Queiroz believes that Lebanon match can be dangerous for the Iranian team.

"We are an experienced team and must take the match seriously. These potential trap games could sink your team's chances," the Portuguese said.

"At the moment, we are just thinking about booking a place for Brazil. I and my players are concentrating on the match," he added.

"I hope that our fans will come to Azadi Stadium to support us against Lebanon. We will wear white jerseys against Lebanon and I want the fans wear white," Queiroz concluded.
