Narked after being doorstepped by a gaggle of reporters prying into the running ofhis team, Bahram Afsharzade, chairman of Esteghlal one of Iran's biggest clubs returnedwhat he obviously deemed a low blow (in journalistic terms) with one of his very own.
More than ayear before making his senior international debut for Japan, a young (pre-peroxide) Keisuke Honda turned out for the U23 string in a2008 Summer Olympics qualifier against Hong Kong.
