TEHRAN – Iran national football team striker Mehdi Taremi says they must stay focused on achieving collaborative success at the 2018 World Cup.

Iran have been drawn in Group B of the 2018 World Cup along with Morocco, Spain and Portugal.

The Iran national football team will open the campaign with a match against Morocco at Saint Petersburg on June 15.

Team Melli, meanwhile, face Spain in Kazan on 20 June before meeting Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in Saransk five days later.

“We must stay focused on achieving collaborative success in the 2018 World Cup. We are in the training camp in Istanbul now and are preparing well for the World Cup,” Taremi said in an interview with ffiri.ir.

“We need to be united ahead of the competition because we can be stronger. For me and the other Iran players the 2018 World Cup has started four months ago. I am truly surprised how some people don’t care about the World Cup,” Al Gharrafa striker added.

“We have to put aside our differences and support our national team. Without a doubt, World Cup is the most important event in the world and all players take advantage of this opportunity and are committed to succeed,” ex-Persepolis striker added.

“The friendly match against Turkey will help us and the coaching staff to be more prepared for the World Cup,” Taremi concluded.
