    Well, friendlies and player/coaching staff/academy exchanges don't just happen out of thin air. It's personal connections and formalized relationships that get things done (as in most businesses/organizations). This the first step, and I'm glad Taj is being proactive. The alternative is the Saudi model of paying a league/team/nation to have your players sit on their bench and learn by osmosis, but I prefer Taj's methods.

    We have signed these with Italy, Armenia, Netherlands and now Croatia. Yet the last time a Middle or Western European Country came to Iran for a football game was in 2004/2005, Iran against Germany. And that i think only happened because of the terrible earthquake Bam, so it was a charity match. My point is that the Mullahs don‘t want our people and nation to be happy, they rather steal the countrys wealth themselves and don‘t spend on football at all. Our next friendly in Korea will be sponsored by the Koreans completely! Wake up people!!! This coming from a die hard team melli fan

    Your statement is inconsistent with the facts on the ground. Why pay Wilmots a hefty salary then? Why spend money to travel to SK for a friendly? Why send our U-18 team to Granatkin tournament?

    The more logical answer to the lack of friendlies in Iran, is the sanctions and restrictions placed on EVERY nation who wants to do any business with Iran (including paying for friendlies). The European football federations (just like the European companies who pulled out of Iran) are terrified of getting slapped with US sanctions violations and penalties. Unfortunately, it's the state of affairs that we're in now.

    Same way IFF found ways to finally/ultimately pay CQ and Wilmots (though with expected delays). Iran and IFF have been doing this for 40 years and find work arounds to the sanctions (one way or another). It's the recipient who must take on the risk of delayed payment (which is why CQ, understandably, complained to FIFA). The Europeans, unfortunately, are not willing to take that risk at this time, but hopefully this will change.

    Don‘t blame everything on Sanctions. We also didn‘t have any decent sides coming to play against us in Iran before.
    If you wanna play the big guns, you gotta pay millions, which Iran could easily do. But unfortunately the country is run by a bunch of bi sawads and thieves. I‘m hoping the best for the future though! I mean we are friends with turkey, lets bring them over to Azadi for a game! You can‘t get ready for the world cup by playing against Sierra Leones Third Team 😂

    How does a team like Haiti, the poorest country in the northern hemisphere get to play a country like Chili? It happened last week. Just wondering.

    MoU for the vitrine....to justify the dinner of the different meetings..
    World Cup 2006, Frankfurt, Iran vs. Portugal, Iranian Frontpage of GOAL Sportspaper


    And on the 8.Day God created Ali Karimi, and he saw he was good!
    If Defenders were allowed to use their hands to stop Karimi
