However, Queiroz and the Iran football federation have yet to put pen to paper on extending the Portuguese coach's stay.Queiroz is revered in Iran after taking the country to the World Cup in Brazil in 2014 and Russia four years later – the only time the nation has qualified for back-to-back World Cups.However, his relationship with Iranian officials has been fractured throughout his 7 1/2 year tenure.Iran picked up four points in their three games in Russia, including the country's second-ever World Cup win with a 1-0 victory over Morocco, to narrowly miss out on a place in the last 16 despite being in the same group as Spain and Portugal.Captain Masoud Shojaei praised the impact Queiroz has had during his time in charge and stressed the players will not allow the former Real Madrid and Portugal coach to leave without a fight.
