The Iranian national team is seeking to overcome the events taking place in the country at the present time, after violent protests erupted there as the team prepares for the World Cup competitions in Qatar.

“We also have our duties towards Iranian society, but we are here to focus on football,” the team’s striker, Mehdi Taremi, said on Saturday.

He added: Regardless of the protests, I have already made my point, but here it is about football and fun for the fans.

Over the course of weeks, Iran witnessed massive popular protests after the death of the 22-year-old woman, Mahsa Amini, who was arrested in mid-September by the Iranian morality police on charges of violating the rules of Islamic dress and died at the police station shortly thereafter.

The current events in Iran affected the national team’s preparations for the World Cup in Qatar, where it is in Group Two, which includes England, the United States of America and Wales.
