‘Ace’ Taremi who came out after taking a break… No presence at all, humiliation of valid shooting ‘0 times’
Iran’s leading striker Mehdi Taremi (Porto) showed no presence at all. Earlier, he was able to rest because he was not able to play in the match against Japan due to “disciplinary action”, so he had a lot of expectations as he was physically able to afford it, but he finished the game without hitting a single effective shot.
Taremi started in the semi-final of the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup against Qatar at Altuma Stadium in Doha, Qatar on the 8th (Korea time), but failed to show any significant performance and was replaced in the 8th minute of extra time in the second half.
Earlier, Taremi was not able to play in the quarterfinals against Japan on the 3rd. It was because she was suspended after being sent off for accumulated warnings in the match against Syria in the round of 16. The Iranian Football Association (FFIRI) protested over Taremi’s warning, but it was not accepted.
Despite Taremi’s absence, Iran advanced to the semifinals with a thrilling 2-1 come-from-behind victory as it dramatically reversed the game with Alireza Jahanbakhshu’s penalty kick (PK) goal in the 6th minute of extra time in the second half against Japan. Taremi, who had wiped away tears, smiled brightly when Iran was confirmed to advance to the semifinals.
Taremi started the match against Qatar on the day after her retirement penalty was lifted. Iranian fans had high expectations for Taremi, who was physically relaxed as she rested. However, Taremi failed to show any presence on the day.
Taremi led offensives along with Jahanbakhshu, Sardar Azmoun (AS Roma), and Saman Godos (Brentford) at the frontier. However, Taremi repeatedly failed to overcome Qatar’s defense. In fact, Taremi hit three shots but failed to connect with them due to effective shots.
Taremi, in particular, failed to meet Iranian fans’ expectations by scoring two big chance misses. She lost her ball as many as 17 times and only won four competitions in the air ball competition. Amid such sluggish performance, Taremi received a 5.6 rating from Sofa Score, a soccer statistics magazine. It was definitely the lowest rating. 헤라카지노도메인
Despite Taremi’s silence, Iran maintained a tight balance with Qatar, where Jasim Gaber (Al-Arabi) and Akram Afif (Al-Sad) scored with Azmoun and Jahanbakhshu’s scores. However, Iran lost its fourth career opportunity to become the top in Asia as it failed to pass the last gateway to the final by conceding a come-from-behind goal to Al-Muiz Ali (Al-Duhail).
