Iran eager to play Japan

TEHRAN, July 4 (MNA)--Iran’s Football Federation (IFF) is making effort to arrange a friendly match with Japan prior to South Korea and North Korea matches in the 2010 World Cup qualifying round.

Announcing this, IFF’s secretary-general said, “Since Iran was drawn with the two Koreas in the 2010 World Cup qualification we are going to face Japan as a team with the same tactic. Meanwhile Japan is scheduled to play Australia in the competition, as a result, the warm-up match will be worthwhile for them as well.”

Iran is to participate in more warm-up games ahead of the competitions, Mehdi Mohammad Nabi added.

Iran has been drawn with Saudi Arabia, the UAE, South Korea and North Korea in group B of the 2010 World Cup qualifications.
