‘Great wall of Iran football’: AFC extends birthday wishes to Beiranvand

The official Instagram page of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has extended birthday wishes to Alireza Beiranvand, calling the legendary goalkeeper “the great wall” of the Iranian national football team.

Alireza Beiranvand, currently a player for Persepolis Football Club, has contributed significantly to football in Iran.

Notably, he stood as the last line of defense for Iran in two consecutive FIFA World Cups—2018 in Russia and 2022 in Qatar.

His remarkable feat of saving a penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo during the 2018 World Cup remains a standout moment in Beiranvand’s professional football career.
