#TeamMelli Player To Watch: Reza Ghoochannejhad

Reza Ghoochannejhad: plays forward for Team Melli.

In today’s game against Nigeria, Ghoochannejhad will be the key player in Iran’s counterattacking play.

All about that defense… and making sure he can break it through.

His last name might be a bit of a tongue twister (no complaining there), but it’s okay ladies…

he goes by Gucci for short.

In June of 2013, Gucci scored the only goal for Team Melli in the World Cup qualifier against Qatar. Then he scored against Lebanon in the game that ended in 4-0 (in favor of Iran… duh).

And finally, he scored the winning goal in the match against South Korea (1-0), which led to Iran’s qualification at the top of their group for the 2014 WORLD CUP.

Thanks Gucci.

 And don’t let those football legs fool you, he’s a also a whiz at the violin.

(because what Persian family allows you to grow up without playing/attempting a sport and an instrument).

In fact, he hopes to be part of a philharmonic orchestra when he retires.
