TEHRAN – Iranian international forward Mehdi Taremi scored an extraordinary last-minute goal for Porto but it was not enough for the Portuguese giants to book a place at the UEAF Champions League semifinals.

Sérgio Conceição’s side had lost 2-0 to Chelsea last week at Seville’s Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.

Taremi played in the last 30 minutes and did something magical.

“I think we played a good match but we were a little bit unlucky. Porto had a good performance against Chelsea but it was not enough to qualify for the next stage,” Taremi said in the post-match news conference.

“We started the campaign with the aim of winning title but we failed to do that and it’s part of football,” he added.

He became the first Iranian player to score a goal in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.
