"First, we are going to win a medal in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup in Australia. Because of that, we need to work hard. As you know me, I am not the kind of the persons who just promises. We will have to reach our goal with hard work," Queiroz told the reporters.

"Our second goal is clear and easy. We want to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Our program is clear. We will likely hold a training camp in Portugal," he added.

Under guidance of Carlos Queiroz, Iran played out a goalless draw against Nigeria, suffered a late 1-0 defeat against Argentina, and lost 3-1 to Bosnia and Herzegovina in Group F of the 2014 World Cup.
