Mani: Dreams of football glory
Mani is a 16-year old student from Karaj, just west of Tehran. He plays football as a centre forward and trains every day after school with his coach.
When I ask him about his dreams he explains he wants to play in Europe.
He says Iran has some very talented players, but that they don’t play well together, thus scuppering the country’s chances of international success.
