With just two weeks to go until the World Cup kicks off in Russia, our partners Gol Bezan Podcast are back with another great podcast to discuss Team Melli and their tournament preparations.

Following the team’s 2-1 loss to Turkey on May 28, the panel discussed the poor performances of defender Roozbeh Chesmi as well as captain Masoud Shojaei.

Is head coach Carlos Quieroz asking too much of his out-of-position players? Was Chesmi to blame for his performance? And can the team get it together ahead of Russia? Listen to find out!
