The Germans could not be more glad about that final whistle. It was getting excruciating for them. They need to go back to the drawing board before they face Guinea in their final group clash. It won't be an easy game, especially not if their defence is still the shambles we saw tonight. Iran, on the other, produced a performance for the ages. These players won't forget this night ever. They thoroughly outclassed Germany, a European football powerhouse. In the process, they have also sent a message to other teams in the competition. Nobody will be taking Iran lightly after tonight. A complete performance, from front to back.

Full time. Iran 4-0 Germany.

Iran thrash Germany 4-0 to take a commanding position in Group C. Germany were defensively poor and were punished by Iran. This is a psychologically damaging loss for Germany and it is crucial for them to put this defeat behind as soon as possible and regroup for their last match against Guinea.

90` Iran 4-0 Germany

Another free-kick from a promising position and this time it's a better one. The ball deflects off the wall and is destined to find the back of the net but keeper Ali Gholam Zadeh tips it over the bar.

85` Iran 4-0 Germany

Germany get a free-kick just outside the box. It's a poor one as the ball is blocked by the six-man Iranian wall. Iran still trying for a fifth goal.

Iran make it 4-0. Complete domination. Namdari comes off the bench and scores. He was released on through and the German defence was caught napping again. Namdari calmly sidefooted the ball past Plogmann. Germans are afraid to move forward. They keep exchanging passes in their own half and eventually lose it under pressure. They have completely failed to take the game to Iran's half. Any attempts to do so have been stifled out. Iran did not have much to defend against tonight, but when it was needed, they were alert and quick to thwart any German line of attack.

75` GOAL! Namdari scores! Iran 4-0 Germany

Now it's the substitute Vahid Namdari who gets his name on the scoresheet. Germany are guilty of giving the ball away cheaply and Iran hit them on the counter. Namdari makes no mistake as he sends the ball in the bottom corner. Iran are tearing Germany apart.

70` Iran 3-0 Germany

Germany's mask-wearing left-back John Yeboah whips a cross in towards Arp but his stooping header goes miles over the goal. At the other end, Sayyad tries his luck from a distance but it is never going to trouble Plogmann.

65` Iran 3-0 Germany

Germany win a corner from which Mai rises the highest but the ball balloons off his head behind for a goal-kick. Nothing seems to be going Germany's way tonight.

Iran replace their goalscorer Younes Delfi with Vahid Namdari. The Iranian has been Iran's best player tonight.

Preview: Germany will start as hot favourites when they take on Asian heavyweights Iran in a Group C league match of the FIFA U-17 World Cup at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Tuesday.

Both the teams registered opening victories with Germany getting past Costa Rica 2-1 and Iran beating Guinea 3-1 on Saturday.

Germany had a shaky start before taking a lead midway in the first half through star striker Jann-Fiete Arp.

Costa Rica fought back to restore parity in the second half through Andres Gomez.

With the match heading towards a draw, Germany needed substitute Noah Awuku's effort to score the winner in the dying minute to give Germany full points.

Iran, on the other hand, rode a splendid second-half show to beat Guinea 3-1.

Germany will rely on Nicolas Kuehn, Noah Awuku and John Yeboah along with Arp, who has been named in the list of best 60 footballers born in 2000 by football pundits, to deliver the goods.

Iran have a watertight defence and they would give their all to hold on and eke out an upset.

"We did not get the start we wanted. The boys were nervy at first against Costa Rica but settled down and went on to beat Costa Rica," German coach Christian Wucku said.

"They have the potential to play better and I am looking forward to seeing them play to their potential against Iran who play a tactical game and have a strong defence," said Wucku. Iran, who play a defensive game initially and slowly open up the game in the second half, will be looking to repeat the same against Germany who look strong in their attack.

Iran's coach Abbas Chamanian said: "Now that we have won against Guinea we need to counter the German as they are well organised in their attack and defence.

"We have worked out a strategy to counter and hopefully we'll succeed and win tomorrow which will see us into the round of 16," said Chamanian.

Squads:

Germany: Luca Plogmann, Alexander Nitzl, Pascal Hackethal, Dominik Becker, Jan Boller, Noah Awuku, Shaverdi Catin, Eric Majetshcek, Jan-Fiete ARP, Elias Abouchabaka, Nicolas Kuehn, Luis Klatte, Dennis Jastrzembski, Yannik Keitel, Kilian Ludewig, Lars Mai, maurice Malone, John Yeboah, Jessic Ngankam, Yann Bisseck and Marian Prins.

Iran: Gholam Zadeh Gomari, Satavi, Jalali, Esmaeil Zadeh Shahkola, Nasiri, Shariati Khameneh, Hosseinzadeh Tazehgheshlagh, Sharifi, Sayyad Manesh Shiadeh, Ghobeishavi, Delfi, Ashayer, Janipour, Davaran, Kooshki, Namdari DEhghadi, Ghaderi, Karimi Lishter, Sardari Amidabadi, Khaghani and Khoda Moradi.
