After a meeting that already will remain for the forget, the ones of Iran heaved with the triumph with a goal in the 88'.

The team trained by the legend of the FC Barcelona began with good foot the meeting. The players knew that they had to do at all times and his game based in the order and the discipline so much in the defensive line as in the one of mediocentros. In spite of dominating with correction these appearances could not drill the defence of the Iranian group, that from the first moment, shut backwards.

Xavi is totally conscious of the upper that is Santi Cazorla with regard to his rivals and mates; by this reason, organised all the game from a more delayed position that the one who occupied in the group 'groguet' the past season. It was the best of the party, left to his alone mates with big assistances that, alas, did not finish in goal.

The technical and tactical difference between the two teams was evident; but there is a factor that can equalise any meeting: you win them. The Persépolis put hands to the work, in an exhibition of physical resistance and perseverance. With his actions to the contragolpe achieved to generate danger by bands with his sides and his leading centre, Issa Alekasair.

An unexpected end for the To the Sadd of Xavi

It was the Iranian forward, mentioned previously, the one who was able to open the tin in the minute 88 of the meeting. When both teams began to go down the intensity taking into account an extention that seemed unavoidable, finished a balloon after a good kickoff of corner that finish in the network of the goal of Saad to the Sheeb, goalkeeper of the To the Saad.

The team of Xavi Hernández will not be able to follow competing for being the best team of Asia. Curiously, they had been the team more goleador in the phase of groups of the competition, with fourteen so many. It is a penalty not being able to enjoy of a hypothetical meeting between the To the Saad and the Vissel Kobe, still live in the competition, of the mate of Xavi, Andrés Iniesta.
