Carlos Queiroz: “Stadium St. Petersburg is fantastic!”


The Iran manager and former boss of Real Madrid and Portugal spoke about Zenit’s home arena after the game with Morocco.

The stadium is fantastic! The changing rooms, the pitch, all of it, everything! I would like to say that the Russian people and the organisers and everyone who’s helped us has been very kind and I congratulate your country on this wonderful World Cup!

The Iranian national team beat Morocco 1-0 with an own goal in injury time. The match was attended by 62,548 fans, a new record for Stadium St. Petersburg.
