Why is Iran the oldest World Cup team?

According to the sports reporter of Fars news agency, the national football team of our country is present in Qatar with 25 players to participate in the 2022 World Cup, which, apart from being called the oldest team in the tournament with an average age of 9.28 years, is a negative record in this field. He has also registered another in his own name.

Carlos Queiroz’s team is the only team in the tournament that does not have any players aged 23 and under. In fact, all Iranian players are among the players whose age matches the age category of adults. This is due to the fact that in the previous World Cup, Mehdi Torabi, Saeed Ezzatullahi, Majid Hosseini and Sardar Azmoun were four players with this age.

This shows that during the time between Queiroz’s return to our country’s football, the cycle of using young and talented players in Iran was not carried out correctly, so that the team that was in the seventh place of the youngest team in the 2018 World Cup, is now the oldest team in the cup. Owning even one 23-year-old or under average player.

Of course, considering that Queiroz used 11 youth and Omid players in his team’s camps in the national team’s training for the last two weeks before sending it to Qatar, it is expected that if he continues to work with the national team after the World Cup, the process of youthization will meet the conditions. Better go.

In the field of using under-23 players, Ghana, which is the youngest team in the World Cup, has a special record with 13 players.
