TEHRAN - In a press conference after the game against Lebanon, Ahmad Nourollahi said that the Iranian players have a great mentality.
Ahmad Nourollahi said at the beginning: "I think the game was very difficult, because the field was not conducive to playing football. The players played very well and in the first half we created a lot of opportunities on the opponent's goal."
He continued: "Unfortunately, we scored on a very unusual ball, but we returned to the game very well, which shows the great mentality of the Iranian players. We are very happy to have taken a very important step towards the World Cup. This game was very important for us and we thank God that we scored three points in this game and we were able to get much closer to reaching the World Cup."
In response to a question about the quality of the training and competition ground, he said: "The artificial turf on which we practiced was not of good quality at all, and I could not practice well two days before the game. We expected the main pitch to be of better quality today, but I don't think it was conducive to playing on the pitch, however we were able to play very well on this pitch and I think we got a very good result but the pitch conditions were not good."
