Iran goalkeeper among top Asian players

The Asian media 'Fox Sports Asia' has listed the names of five best goalkeepers among whom was Iran's Alireza Beiranvand.

'Having only established himself in the national team a couple of years ago, Alireza Beiranvand really rose to prominence at the 2018 FIFA World Cup with a string of fine displays as Iran nearly pipped Spain and Portugal to a spot in the Round of 16,' Asian media reported.

'The highlight of his tournament came against the Portuguese when he saved a penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo, and – despite there being no shortage of offers from overseas – the 26-year-old decided to stay put at Persepolis.'

Michael Falkesgaard from Philippines, Jo Hyeon-woo from Korea Republic, Mathew Ryan from Australia and Dang Van Lam from Vietnam were other top listed players.

Alireza Beiranvand is an Iranian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Persepolis in the Persian Gulf Pro League. Beiranvand represented the Iran national football team at the 2015 AFC Asian Cup and 2018 FIFA World Cup.
