Any ways, there are some funny stories about the game and the Iranian national soccer team.
First, I read in some Iranian papers that Mexico has sent witches to Germany to protect their team and help them win the games. And to counter this damned trick, Iran has also sent bunch of Islamic clerics (mullahs) to read Quran verses for the players and keep their spirit up. The mullah accompanying the team said that infidel's tricks won't affect the believers of Allah's will and we'll definitely deter their evil tricks. We'll see if the darn mullahs trick work or not... LoL
There will also be mass protests against the Iranian regime during the soccer match according to BBC News:
- One of the biggest fears the Germans have for the World Cup is that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will come here to watch his team play.
- Another leading member of the community said this demonstration would also be a protest against the proposals made for resolving the dispute over Iran's nuclear programme, which he described as latter-day appeasement.
Very well, the tragic part of this to me, is the treatment Iranian people often receive around the world, thanks to the mullahs of Iran, at most public places such as airports and stadiums...etc. Therefore, any Iranian citizen entering the stadiums in Germany during the tournament will be subject to police search. Well, it is offensive to me although I can understand why it is like that.
I do wish the national team the best of luck and keep my fingers crossed for the good news!
Update 1 @ 12:48 pm EST: Iran 1 - Mexico 1
Update 2 @ 1:55 pm EST: Iran 1 - Mexico 3 (( It's mullah's fault for sure)) - Beaners won the game! They deserved it...
