Iran - Macedonia 1-1 (1-0)
Friendly Match, Teheran

Goals: 1-0 Teymourian (36' / Assist by Meydavoudi)
1-1 Pandev (49')

Today's friendly soccer match was a chance to check the capacity of both squads. On such a rainy day, both teams had one half to show their skills.

Iranian coach Afshin Ghotbi played with the following team: Rahmati - Kaebi, Aghili, Nosrati, Beikzadeh - Teymourian, Nekounam (46' Mobali) - Kazemian (46' Khalatbari), Shojaei (76' Ansarifard), Madanchi (57' Heydari) - Meydavoudi (67' Borhani).

Macedonian squad led by Mirsad Jonuz selected the following players:

Goalkeepers: Tome Pachovski - Germinal Beerschot, Belgium; Kristijan Naumovski - Rabotnicki, Macedonia;

Defenders: Goce Sedloski - SV Mattersburg, Austria; Vlade Lazarevski - FK Karpaty Lviv, Ukraine; Goran Popov - SC Heerenveen, Netherlands; Nikolce Noveski - FSV Mainz 05, Germany; Daniel Mojsov - FK Makedonija Gjorce Petrov , Macedonia; Robert Popov - Auxerre, France;

Midfielders: Veliche Shumulikoski - Preston North End, England; Filip Despotovski - FK Vorskla Poltava, Ukraine; Armend Alimi - NK Istra, Croatia; Slavco Georgievski - Ulsan Hyundai, South Korea; Gligor Gligorov - Sileks, Macedonia;

Strikers: Goran Pandev - SS Lazio, Italy; Aco Stojkov - FC Aarau, Switzerland; Filip Ivanovski - Polonia Warszawa, Poland; Besart Ibraimi - FK Renova, Macedonia; Dusan Savić - Rabotnicki, Macedonia.

The few spectators saw an even first half under pouring rain, in which the Macedonians had the better chances, but faild to convert, while Iranians mainly relied on shots from far out, which mostly were all but dangerous.

One such effort led to the homeside's lead in minute 36. Meydavoudi smacked a freekick on goal and Pachovski could not hold on to the wet ball, so Teymourian tapped in the rebound from close range.

Macedonia responded just four minutes into second half, when a cross from the right side found superstar Pandev on the far post, who perfectly headed the ball past the chanceless Mehdi Rahmati.

Iran now created more chances than in first half, but Iman Mobali (51' / shot), Mohammad Nosrati (52' / header), Teymourian (55' / shot) and Masoud Shojaei (64' / volley) faild to bring Iran back in front.

On the other side Macedonia remained dangerous through counter attacks, but Pandev (49') and Ibraimi (65') were denied by Rahmati.

Iran looked more eager to win than the guests during the final minutes, but saw a Hadi Aghili header saved by the goalkeeper, seven minutes from time.
