The Iranian national team notched the top spot in their group for 2015 AFC Asian Cup Qualifying today. Quakes defender Steven Beitashour earned his second start and third cap with the Iranian national team, playing the full 90 . 

Iran may have defeated Lebanon 4-1 this morning, but not without heavy hearts. Hours before the match, the Iranian Embassy was bombed in Beirut, killing 23 people. The match still went on as planned, but spectators were not allowed into the stadium. 

The final round of group play for Iran continues next March. The team returns to Tehran and hosts Kuwait on March 3.
