Tasnim - Germany U-17 football coach Christian Wuck said that Iran is a physically and mentally very strong team.
Germany lost to Iran 4-0 in Group C of the FIFA U-17 World Cup on Tuesday.
"I told my players that during their careers they will face many setbacks and this is probably one of their biggest setbacks but we have to come back strongly against Guinea," Wuck said in the post-match news conference.
"We knew in advance that Iran is physically very strong so we also wanted to field strong players. They are also mentally a very good team. All the players, not only the goalkeeper (Luca Plogmann) were not at their best," he lamented.
