#1 Iran's Defense
Without any doubt, Iran was fierce in their first match. They were constantly scoring points throughout the match. Mohammad Nabibaksh, Mohammad Malak, and Mohammad Maghsoudlou shone for the defensive side of the team. They might prove as a nightmare for the other teams in the future.
