Following a modest start to his career with a number of second-tier Iranian clubs, Omid Ebrahimi raised his profile when he joined Sepahan in 2010. Within two years, the midfielder had received his maiden call-up to the Iran squad from coach Carlos Queiroz.
Ebrahimi had to settle for a marginal role during the qualifiers for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, claiming only two minutes of action. However, it was a different story on the road to Russia 2018, with Ebrahimi spending 727 minutes on the pitch. In superb form for Tehran club Esteghlal, he now hopes to hit the same heights on the biggest stage of all.
