- Fans are crazy about Twitter after seeing the monster pitch of Alireza Beiranvand
- The Iranian goalkeeper threw the ball an incredible 70 yards in their draw with Iraq
- One Twitter user responded to the video: & # 39; Mental! He should concentrate on discus! & # 39;
Ederson, the Ederson in Manchester City, may have built a reputation for his brilliant distribution from the back, but there is an Iranian goalkeeper who may have outdone him.
The Brazilian is known for his sparkling feet and hammer-left foot, with which he broke the Guinness Book of Records for the longest drop-kick last May, but imagine a goalkeeper who could throw him just as far.
Meet Alireza Beiranvand, the keeper who sends his fans wild on social media with his monster pitch and accuracy.

Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand threw the ball more than 70 meters during their match with Iraq
His throw flew in half of the opponent and found a teammate to launch an attack
The Iranian goalkeeper grabbed the headlines in his 0-0 draw against Iraq on Wednesday-evening in their Group D-clash in the Asian Cup.
But it was not because of David possessing the Gea-like reflexes or to make a series of excellent saves to keep the scores goalless, but to throw the ball more than 70 yards.
The 25-year-old, who was the first goalkeeper in history to save a World Cup penalty from a Portuguese player last summer – Cristiano Ronaldo denied it – showed his incredible balactiv skills during Wednesday's game.
One especially overwhelmed fans and is the longest ever mentioned in football history after Beiranvand's throw beat the way to half the opponent and found a teammate to launch a counterattack.
Ederson has a hammer, his left foot and great spread, but Beiranvand may have surpassed him
He also made a name for himself in the summer by saving a penalty Cristiano Ronaldo
& # 39; That must be a record & # 39 ;, wrote a fan on Twitter. Another user said: & # 39; Mentally! He plays the wrong sport. You have to focus on discus! & # 39;
The story of Beiranvand about rags of wealth went viral in the summer. The keeper walked away from home as a youngster and temporarily lived on the streets to pursue his dream of becoming a professional footballer.
He worked in a clothing factory, a car wash and a street sweeper before he finally made it.
Now his long throw can make him a star and will undoubtedly be a useful weapon for Iran, which stood on the top of group D with the draw of Wednesday and awaits the question of who they will meet in the last 16 of the Asian Cup.
