More Than A Goalkeeper

Legend, is what he was called in his native Iran. Nasser Hejazi was capped as the national goalkeeper 62 times including capturing 3 straight Asian Cups and a World Cup Berth in 1978. Considered to be the bet Asian goalkeeper of all-time, Iran is currently mourning after laying The Legend to rest after a 2-year bout with lung cancer. There are plans to name a stadium in his name in the capital of Tehran.
