Iran booked a ticket for the quarter-finals at the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup, underway in Goa, India, with a convincing 4-0 victory over Germany in the second match in Group A, on Tuesday.
The Group C match-up belonged to Team Melli, who dominated a German side that looked out of sorts during the opening 45 minutes.
Younes Delfi scored twice for Iran in the first half while Allahyar Sayyadmanesh and Vahid Namdari rounded of the scoring for the Asian champions. He doubled after converting a free-kick for a deserved two-goal lead three minutes to the half-time.
Report claims iPhone X suppliers struggling to produce 3D sensor components
A big part of the new iPhone, the TrueDepth camera powers the Face ID recognition feature, animoji, and Portrait Mode selfies. Many reports have actually referred to this issue as the major production bottleneck for iPhone X production.
Germany will thank their goalkeeper Luca Plogmann for helping them avert further embarrassment with several important saves as Delfi and Allayahr Sayyad ran their defence ragged. "Germany is always a tough opponent for any team in the world but we showed a brilliant team performance; we defended excellently and were great in attack", Iran's head coach Abbas Chamanian said.
Both teams are in an identical situation with one point from two matches each. "But right now, we are over it and everyone is looking forward to the Guinea match", German coach Christian Wuck told media after the session. Costa Rica have a point against Guinea and could have easily carried home another against Germany. Spain also gained a 4-0 victory against Niger.
DPR Korea frustrated Brazil by sitting deep and relying on counter-attacks in their previous match and Spain will expect a similar experience in a must-win match for the La Rojitas.

Following the incident, local villagers gathered at the spot, set the vehicle on fire and held a rasta roko at the accident spot. Three friends of the Sena leader, who were inside the vehicle at the time of the accident, were arrested, a police officer said.
The first match between Iran and Costa Rica is as crucial as the second as a win to the latter could see the latter in the next round or at least qualify through the back door if Germany keeps leaving their fans in shock again.
Iran will play Costa Rica on Friday while Germany meet Guinea.
