Iranian national football team's striker Sardar Azmoun has made Champions
League Team of the Week.
He has been called the "Iranian Messi" and perhaps the reasons are a little
bit clearer now. The stage for Rostov's 3-2 victory over Bayern Munich was set
by Azmoun's superb first half equalizer, ESPN wrote.
He twisted inside Jerome Boateng, leaving arguably the world's best central defender floundering on the turf, and slotted coolly past Sven Ulreich. Azmoun is just 21 and has been linked with a move to Liverpool; this was certainly the goal that announced his ability to perform on the biggest stage.
With the penultimate round of fixtures complete, here's a look at the best Champions League XI.
Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris (Tottenham)
