The Iranian National football team visited England for the first time in July 2005. They were to play three friendly matches with Queens Park Rangers (QPR), Millwall and Portsmouth Football clubs.
The Iranian National team had already qualified for the World Cup 2006 in Germany and they are currently ranked 15th in the world. For their first game on 23rd July 2005, Amir took 11 of his young players to the game against QPR. During the half time interval Persian FC juniors had a penalty shoot out against the QPR Junior side. Persian FC won 9-8.
Unfortunately things did not fare so well for the Iranian National team, although a thoroughly enjoyable game was played, the Iranian team lost 3 - 0 to QPR (most of the Iranian team were from the under 23's and not the first team). However it was said that the Iranian supporters were the best they had ever seen at the ground.
The Iranian team organizers asked Amir to spend one to two weeks with them to help the coach and team during their stay at Bisham Abbey, where the English National Football Team is based as their headquarters.
