According to FIFA report, Iran coach Carlos Queiroz told AFP he hopes his side can overcome poor preparations to make an impact at the FIFA World Cup™ finals in Brazil, but admits that the draw has left them facing a huge task.

“This is our mission impossible once, twice and three times,” Queiroz, the 60-year-old who took charge as head coach in April 2011, told AFP in Tehran. “But that is what makes the tournament attractive.”
