Iran's Ezatolahi ruled out of AFC Asian Cup


Kuala Lumpur: Iran's Saeid Ezatolahi will miss out on Team Melli's AFC Asian Cup campaign due to an injury. 

The 22-year-old player suffered the injury on international duty in October.

Ezatolahi expressed his disappointment at missing the competition.

"I feel really bad about missing the AFC Asian Cup but I have to trust in God. I am very sad since I cannot be at Team Melli’s service as a soldier.

"In the 2018 World Cup, I did my best to make the Iranian people happy but I am ruled out of the AFC Asian Cup and I cannot be a part of Team Melli," said Ezatolahi in a post on social media. (Source: the-afc.com)
