Street celebration for a pleasant win against Wales
WANA (Nov 25) – The Iranian national football team was able to get out of the pressure with an excellent win in the Qatar FIFA World Cup. The defeat with the result of 6-2 against the strong UK team had made it very difficult for the Iranian team mentally and physically. MORE
The football-loving Iranians did not expect such a defeat from the Iranian team against the British football team, although they did not hope for victory either. Most Iranians thought that the Iranian team would leave the field with two goals conceded in its first game.
Politically, the players of the Iranian national football team were also under pressure. Following the recent protests, a number of protesters inside and outside Iran wanted to boycott the games and considered the members of the Iranian national football team traitors for participating in the Qatar World Championships and put pressure on them not to play in numerous messages. In many cases, they were even threatened with death. The verbal and textual violence that was sent to the Iranian players during these days by rioters caused their mental condition to suffer a heavy defeat against the UK team.
From the point of view of some football experts, today’s beautiful game of the Iranian football team proved that the Iranian national football team is still one of the best teams in Asia. A lively game that delighted Iranians.
Moments after the Iran team won 2-0 against Wales, people came to the streets and celebrated this victory. Even the security forces and the police, who are present in the streets these days to deal with rioters, celebrated with the people. Beautiful and interesting scenes were created in the streets. The clerics gave sweets to women who did not wear Islamic hijab and congratulated them on this victory. Women with full Islamic hijab celebrated this victory alongside women without hijab.
Mrs. Eslami, a citizen of Tehran who came to Vali – E – Asr Square to participate in the victory celebration, says that she came to share this joy with others. Mr. Mousavi, a 60-year-old man with eyes that show tears and a smile, tells WANA reporter about the moments of the Iranian team’s victory and all the moments that passed with tears of joy. A 25-year-old young man named Amir Hossein talks about the ease of winning against the American national football team with the same youthful enthusiasm. He believes that Iran has a high motivation to advance to the next round of the competition.
It seems that if the Iranian national football team does not get involved in another political sidelines and plays the next game against America with the same motivation, they can win the game. Undoubtedly, the next game between Iran and America is very exciting. Which one of these two old enemies will win this game, which is held in the green triangle? Certainly, the citizens and politicians of the two countries, Iran and the United States, have a political view of this sports competition. A fact that cannot be denied so easily.
