 Bahrami Hope to Rewrite World Cup History: Irans Strong Group


Its exciting to be able to play in the World Cup. Its always exciting to be able to compete with high-level athletes from all over the world, Bahrami said. I hope to see high-level matches in China, as well as those Chinese fans who love basketball matches.

After winning the Asian Cup in Tianjin in 2009, the Iranian mens basketball team got the chance to participate in the 2010 World Basketball Championship (the predecessor of the World Cup), and since then there has been no lack of Iranians in the World Cup arena. Ten years later, the mens basketball World Cup began in China, which may be the best chance for Iran to reach a new height.

The World Cup is always full of difficulties. Bahrami said, Everyone here has only the goal of winning, I can say that I and my teammates will put their best efforts on the field, we will not leave any regrets in the game.

Over the past 10 years, although the Iranian mens basketball team has been a regular visitor to the World Cup, they have not been favored in international competitions. In this summers mens basketball World Cup, Bakhrami and his teammate Haddadi and others are looking forward to breakthroughs to correct their names.

In todays Iranian mens basketball team, Bahrami and Haddadi are undoubtedly team leaders, they shoulder the mission of helping the teams next generation of young players grow up.

I remember when I became a member of the national team, our dream was to win the right to participate in the basketball World Cup, but now I hear people talking about getting into the second round and going as far as possible. This shows that our generation of players has changed peoples expectations and goals.

In the World Cup, Iran has never had a precedent for promotion. They won one victory in 2010 and one victory in 2014. So far, their total record is 2-8. In this summers mens basketball World Cup, Iran was in Group C with Tunisia, Puerto Rico and Spain, who had won the championship. Bahrami believes that the team has the ability to win and surprise in the World Cup. Our goal is to win as many games as possible. Bahrami said, We need to unite and play team basketball. In the final analysis, its a basketball game. Its competitive sports. Anything can happen on the court. We wont play with the mentality of losing. Well fight with any opponent standing in front of us. Source: Netease Sports Author: Muzi Responsible Editor: Zhao Huanyu_NBJ10043
