Like all of the national teams competing at the World Cup this year, Iran recently released a series of team photos...
...and let's just say it's proof that soccer is, indeed, the beautiful game.
First of all, there's this hunky striker, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, who is welcome to get ~forward~ with us any day:
And if that isn't enough for you, here's a close-up of another fetching AF forward, Karim Ansarifard:
And before we forget, Reza Ghoochannejhad is a striker, too, and also very casually smokin' hot??
In the midfield, we have Saeed Ezatolahi, who clearly moonlights as a Calvin Klein model in his free time:
As well as Masoud Shojaei, who gets mistaken for a soap opera star at least every other day, we are pretty sure:
Over on defense, let us introduce you to Ramin Rezaeian, whose tongue alone should be enough to win this entire shebang:
As well as Morteza Pouraliganji, who is 2000% smoldering at us here and we can't even do anything about it:
And last but most DEFINITELY not least, this is the goalie, Amir Abedzadeh.
So, to recap: Iran's World Cup team is absolute #goals, and you bet we'll be cheering them on to go alllllll the way.
