Ali Daei’s first appearance at Karim Bavi’s funeral ceremony after closing the jewelry store and restaurant
It is a strange paradox; however, with this short leg, he opened the opponents’ gate many times, scored 10 goals in 23 games in his short national career, and was called one of the most memorable classic strikers in the history of the Iranian national team. Bowie’s first goal was scored in a very sensitive game against the South Korean national team in the 1986 Asian Games in Seoul. Another very memorable goal by Bavi was the one he scored against the proud and powerful Kuwait team in 1965, which ended the nightmare of many years of consecutive defeats by the national team against Kuwait. Karim Bavi played in Tehran’s Shahin and Persepolis teams, and old football fans still haven’t forgotten his headers, which were no less than the shots of Siros Taykaran and Karim Bagheri! But his happiness in the green rectangle did not last long, just like his life outside of football, which was bitter and indelible! Karim Bavi is relieved today. Please don’t take it lightly, because I know how much you suffered and burdened the journey with difficulty… In short, as the poet said, “Remember the flight; the bird is a mortal.” May his soul be happy, may his place be green, and may his memory be cherished.
