Colombia, Argentina call for friendly football with Iran

Tehran, Colombia and Argentina national football teams have asked for playing friendly games with Iran, according to Homeira Asadi, head of international affairs department of Iran's Football Federation.

Noting that all requests for holding friendly games are sent via e-mail to Iran's Football Federation, Asadi said that the requests are examined by the Federation and the head coach of Iran's national football team.

The request by Colombia and Argentina teams are also being mulled over like other requests made by other teams, Asadi said.

As the mentioned teams have asked for friendly games in March 2019 after the end of AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019, their requests require more time to be examined in the Football Federation to cope with the goals of Iran national team, the official added.

Iran is preparing for AFC Asian Cup which is due to be held in UAE early in 2019.
