#TeamMelli Player to Watch: Ashkan Dejagah

Tomorrow, Iran plays its second match against Argentina. We’re a little nervous for Messidona, but we have a star of our own on #TeamMelli:

Ashkan Dejagah:

German Iranian.

attacking mid-fielder and right-winger.

His name just rolls off the tongue– De-ja-gah

Most notable achievement: scoring like a rockstar.

Ashkan scored twice on his debut for Iran against Qatar in the 2012 World Cup qualifier. He later scored in games against Lebanon and Thailand, sealing Iran’s place in the 2015 Asian Cup.

Thanks Dejagah.

“I have more Iranian than German blood in my veins,”

And he wears his German-Iranian heritage proudly. Literally.

Berlin on one arm. And Tehran on the other.

With “Never Forget Where You’re From” on his neck.

(born in Tehran).

But he’s not just a tattooed, football playing bad boy…

He’s a family man too.

He wears the Nike Mercurial boot line on the field, and has the names of his wife and daughter embedded onto the external sides of his boots.

For us there were plenty of highlights.

Iroonis all over the world were cheering on #TeamMelli in their game against Nigeria — and people were getting creative.

We asked our Joonies to send us pics of how they were showing their fan pride, and we were not disappointed.

Compiling a list so you don’t have to look anywhere else, now get to scrolling…

One word, Hugs.
