Freindlies & preparation games
Iran really needs at least 6 good friendlies for WC-preparation.. But as usuall IFF officials will wait and waste time till it is late.. Carlos Queiroz seems to already be angry at IFF officials...
IFF can't bring their stupid excuses anymore: Even some Western nations wouldn't want to Play friendlies vs IRAN, there are lot of good alternatives:
Russia and Iran have currently very good relations(specially after cooperation in Syria). Russia would be ready to Play vs IRAN
The relationship between Turkey and Iran also has improved in lst 2 years, and Turkey has a solid team so Iran can have a good preparation game with them
Also some other countries with good relations to IRAN could be good potential candidates for Iran: teams like Greece, Venezuela, Balarus, Bosnia, Croatia, Armenia, Algeria, Iraq
And if IFF is ready to spend more money even some top south american teams like Brazil or Argentina could be possible..
But I'm really fraid IFF would once again waste so much time so at the end Iran could only Play very weak teams like Lebanon
