Who is Amir Ebrahimzadeh the fearsome killer of Iran U20?
Amir Ebrahimzadeh is the player who has scored 6 goals in the 2023 AFC U-20 qualifiers with 5 goals against Brunei and 1 goal against the UAE. This striker’s contribution helped Iran U20 enter the finals as the top of the table.
According to AFC statistics, Amir Ebrahimzadeh is the player who has scored the most goals in a match in the qualifying round. This young assassin scored 5 goals in Iran U20’s 8-0 win over Brunei.
However, in the final round, Amir only scored 1 goal, 1 goal less than striker Nguyen Quoc Viet on the U20 side of Vietnam. It was a goal in the 80th minute of Iran U20’s 2-3 defeat against Australia.
However, teachers and coaches Hoang Anh Tuan cannot let their guard down against this player in the upcoming match. Amir Ebrahimzadeh is currently playing for Tractor club in the Iranian league and is valued at 120,000 euros.
The 19-year-old striker has an impressive height of 1m84. This is the advantage for Iran U20 to use crosses towards this player in the next match. Amir Ebrahimzadeh is considered a potential player and the future of the Iranian national team.
He was once offered a 1-month trial by the Spanish club Deportivo Alaves. At that time, this team was playing in La Liga. However, Amir Ebrahimzadeh remained in the country because the Trator Club objected to the proposal from the bulls’ team.
Ebrahimzadeh got acquainted with the ball from the age of 5 and began to practice at many youth football training centers of Iran. In 2018, he joined the Tractor Club’s training camp.
Ebrahimzadeh is considered a smart, technical player with the ability to hold the ball and finish well. His idol is Portuguese superstar Ronaldo.
Although he plays well in the position of a striker, he is often used by coaches in many positions in midfield, including right winger. Ebrahimzadeh is receiving great expectations in helping Iran find a ticket to the quarter-finals of the 2023 AFC U-20 Championship.
At 5:00 p.m. on March 7 (Vietnam time), the two teams will face each other in the last match of Group B.
This duel took place at Istiqlol Stadium, Fergana, Uzbekistan. After 2 matches, U20 Vietnam is leading Group B with 2 wins. U20 Australia and U20 Iran both ranked 2nd with 3 points (3-3 goal difference).
Qatar U20 is at the bottom of the table after 2 defeats. If there is at least 1 draw against Iran U20 in the last match, U20 Vietnam will definitely reach the quarterfinals. For their part, the representative of West Asia was forced to win to determine his own fate.
