International career[edit]

Sadeghi playing for Iran against Argentina national football team striker Sergio Agüero

He was named one of 23 members of Iranian national football team in 2006 World Cup in Germany. He became a regular player for the 2007 AFC Asian Cup qualification but could not play any match in the actual competition as there were few arguments and differences with the coach Amir Ghalenoei in Malaysia. He was called to Team Melli again for the 2010 World Cup qualification but never played any match and while Carlos Queiroz was in charge he was invited again for the last 3 matches of 2014 World Cup qualifications where Iran qualified for the tournament while Sadeghi played all the three games. He scored his first international goal on 19 November 2013 against Lebanon in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup qualification. On 1 June 2014, he was called into Iran's 2014 FIFA World Cup squad by Carlos Queiroz.[3] He played the full 90 minutes in all three matches for Team Melli, and was one of Iran's key players in defense. He was called into Iran's 2015 AFC Asian Cup squad on 30 December 2014 by Carlos Queiroz.[4]
