Iran v Bahrain Match Preview – WAFF Championship 2012

Iran National Football Team

Iran National Football Team will play with Bahrain in Kazma Stadium in Kuwait. Iran and Saudi Arabia is favorite teams of Group B surely. Both teams had a draw in first matches of WAFF Championship 2012 and their incoming matches will show that who will get to first place in Group B. Iran head coach didn’t call up a few important players for WAFF Championship 2012.







Masoud Shojaei from Osasuna, Ashkan Dejagah from Fullham and Reza Ghoochannej had from Sint Truiden haven’t called up for WAFF Championship 2012.  Head coach Carlos Quieroz generally gave chance new players in WAFF Championship but Iran still is very stronger then other WAFF National Teams with current squad. Iran got a draw against Saudi Arabia National  Football Team and they played well football. I think they will do more then they have done in Saudia Arabia match against Bahrain National Football Team. The most valuable Iran players are Alireza Haghighi from Rubin Kazan, Ehsan Hajsafi from Tractor Sazi and Ghasem Dehnavi from Tractor Sazi.


Bahrain National Football Team

Bahrain National Football Team got a win against Yemen in the first match of WAFF Championship 2012.  Yemen is the weakest team of Group B at the moment and I don’t think that Yemen National Football Team will get any points in WAFF Championship 2012. Bahrain opponent is more dangerous then Yemen incoming match and I don’t think that they will able to play good football against Iran. Because Iran doesn’t their weaker opponents to passing, playing good football and find goal positions.



Bahrain players are generally playing in local league teams, Oman teams and Kuwait teams. The most valuable player of Bahrain National Football Team in Bahrain squad is Ismail Abdul-Latif. He capped 61 times from Bahrain and he scored 29 times for national team.


Match Prediction: There won’t be more then 3 goals and Iran Wins
