Masoud Shojaei offers valuable experience, as the only IR Iran player to have taken part in two separate FIFA World Cup™ finals. Limited to 13 minutes of action at Germany 2006, he played all three matches at Brazil 2014, as Iran returned to the global showcase.

He has also enjoyed an eventful club career, spending time in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Spain and Greece – thanks to his leadership skills as a captain and excellent vision in midfield.

Shojaei appeared in just seven qualifiers for Russia 2018, but the Shiraz native is sure to be among the first names on coach Carlos Queiroz's team sheet, as he vies to become the first Iranian player to feature in three World Cups.
