MNA – TEHRAN, Iran football team is scheduled to play a friendly match against Nigeria on November 17 here at the Azadi Stadium.

“Nigeria will travel to Iran with its big stars. Nigeria’s ban from international football has been provisionally lifted by FIFA and the Super Eagles have no problem to play Iran,” Abbas Torabian director of the International Relations Committee of Iran Football Federation said.

Iran, who is preparing for the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2011, lost to Brazil 3-0 in a friendly held in Abu Dhabi, the UAE last week.
