We don't want these issues to hinder our football at the present time. This matter does not return to us. This matter goes back to our president and the ethics of FIFA.

He said: As you know, if you look at our historical records, first of all, you will see that we have to talk about Wales. I don't think it is right to speak of Iran first. As I said, we want to learn from what happened. The England team was excellent, and we were not as good as our opponents. We have to learn things, and I think we learned some good stuff, and that is the best thing to train and train to be ready to play against Wales.

The national team's head coach further said: What is important is that game shows that we are a good team, and good teams win the game. Great teams are the teams that bounce back after failure and face challenges. No team is perfect, but we have to learn from what happened. The critical issue is the day after the game. Now it's the next day, and we are excited to play Wales.

He added: "We know them, and Wales is a team, or they have a lot of interest and good personalities. It's like a football party, and they have a lot of fans. I hope we will deal with this show. I am confident that my players will play with the character they always had and have a fighting spirit, and I hope we deserve to win the game. This is what matters for tomorrow. What happened yesterday does not determine tomorrow.

About Gareth Bale, Whales Captain Queiroz said: "Bale is one of the best. In terms of personality, he is also the leader of his team on the football pitch, and the stability and management of the team depend on him. Bale is a brilliant player. Bale is the face of the Wales team. This issue shows what character and spirit he has. We have to take care of him because there is continuity and interest in their work; for them, it is not the first or the 90th minute. Instead, they play their own game. We are also ready, and I hope tomorrow we can play the football we can and have a surprise for the Wales team.

The head coach of the Iranian national football team said: " World Cup is an opportunity to introduce the culture and people of any country, but this opportunity has been taken from Iran.

Queiroz wants to introduce the culture and people of Iran to the world; what will he say? He said: "I can say that they do not respect the 3 thousand years of Iran's history. It is extraordinary that we do not learn the historical culture and history, and science of Iran that can be learned. It's remarkable what we can know. This is what I can say about Iranian people.
