Siamak Afrouzi, Iran's Volleyball team physician, does not think the Iranian Volleyballer will fall foul to a serious injury at the 2014 FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship, adding that only Shahram Mahmoudi would not play against France.
Shahram Mahmoudi was absent against the US after he suffered a twisted ankle in the match against Italy in the opening game of the 2014 FIVB World Championship on Sunday. The Iranian physician had announced prior to the yesterday match against the US that Mahmoudi is out of the squad because of injury, adding that the Iranian genius would definitely be out in the two matches against the US and France.
Yet, the Iranian doctor is hopeful that a few days rest would be enough for the Volleyballer to return to action when Iran will face most powerful teams of the world in the tournament.
