Marco Octavio, Iran coach
We had a good tournament and we showed we're heading in the right direction. I've got a very competitive team that played well against some top-class sides, and we came close to beating them all. If we can carry on the good work, I'm sure we'll get the right results in the future. This win is the best possible way to say goodbye to the competition.
