Iran coach Reza Farjad:
My team played better than Russia. We saw it over eight matches and there is no question about it. We do not have any losses.
We prepared for 11 months for this championship. In the Asian Championship, we only finished fourth behind Japn, Korea and China. This was a good motivation for us in the World Championship because we needed to go higher than any other Asian team.
Two years ago, we got the bronze medal in the World Championship with a 3-1 win. Now this has happened and tonight I am very happy see the Iran flag being raised.
