Minute's silence to be held before Iran World Cup qualifier

June 12, 2017

A minute’s silence is set to be observed ahead of Monday’s World Cup qualifier between Iran and Uzbekistan as a mark of respect to those who lost their lives in terror attacks in Tehran.

They will be remembered by a moment of reflection before the Group A fixture with Iran and Uzbekistan’s players in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium.

Iran stand on the brink of advancing to successive FIFA World Cups for the first time in their history.

Unbeaten in seven qualifying games, Iran have been in dominant form in Group A, having yet to concede a goal on the Road to Russia.
