Iran rout Costa Rica

A 0-4 humiliation by Iran denting their confidence, European powerhouse Germany face African side Guinea in a must-win match of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup here on Friday. However, Germany's U-17 team, though they look fantastic as an attacking force, are not so solid at the back like their senior compatriots as shown by their performances in the U-17 World Cup so far. "This was the point from the last game against Iran; many players were surprised about the strength of Iran", says head coach Christian Wuck, after the team spent the evening getting used to the lights, the turf, and perhaps most importantly the humidity of Kochi.

According to the Newspaper, And with good reason.The Iranians reached the final of the AFC U-16 Championships here a year ago, losing only in a penalty shootout to arch-rivals Iraq and have scintillated so far in the World Cup to win both matches.But keeping superstition aside, the surge here would suggest that Iran have brought every last ounce of their experience in Goan conditions into their effervescent display at Fatorda while outplaying Guinea 3-1 and demolishing fancied Germany 4-0.Much as the ambience at Benaulim appeared relatively relaxed, Iran's philosophy after winning a match offers no let-up in intensity."When we win any match, we think more about any point of weaknesses".

"Now that we have won both our matches, we are looking to win against Costa Rica to finish our league engagement with all win", stated Chamanian. "Our defence has done a good job till now and we hope they will continue to do the same in the play-offs as well", said Chamanian.

"We played against a very strong and physical team tonight. We want to stay cool".

In the other Group D match, Spain will look to overcome North Korea to seal their place in pre-quarters.

"Of course, we got nine points, but the most important thing is that we are in the next round".

As Wueck had wished, Germans, with five changes to their starting line-up from the last game, started better and Arp put them ahead making the Guineans pay for a defensive lapse. "I think we have a team that is strong in offence".

"Kochi is actually better than Goa". Iran's Taha Shariati crashed the ball in from the spot kick to take his team two goals up before half time. "But overall, I am very happy for him", Camara said. My players played better here, and it is something I can't explain.

The scoreline might be misleading as Guinea gave a might scare for most of the match with their fast-paced game and it was only their poor finishing that let them down.
