English football is regularly panned by the unenlightened continental hordes for its long-ball sensibilities, but Iranian side Naft Tehran demonstrated against opponents Tractor Sazi on Friday afternoon that, when done properly, taking the “route one” expressway can be a thing of high art.
After collecting the ball in his own six-yard box, Tehran ‘keeper Alireza Beiranvand unleashed an absolute monster of a one-handed throw up the pitch for striker Gholamreza Rezaei, who duly slammed a shot past the Tractor goalie from 40-plus yards…
What a lob! Must’ve been all of 50 yards!
