International Friendlies
Date: 13th November 2017

Iran were among the first nations to book their tickets for Russia having streamrolled their way through the group in Asian qualifiers.

They saw off Panama in a friendly played on Thursday and they’ll be hoping to make it back-to-back wins on Monday afternoon when they take on Venezuela at Gofferstadion in Nijmegen.


La Vinotinto may have ended the WC Qualification campaign at the rock bottom of the South American zone, but they’ve improved their defensive performances significantly in the recent months.

The team led by Rafael Dudamel will come into this undefeated in six matches on the bounce without conceding two or more goals in each of the outings during the process.


The Asians will also enter the game in high spirits being undefeated in last nine fixtures.

The team looks rock-solid at the back under the Portuguese manager Carlos Queiroz and they kept their net untouched in nine of ten WC qualifiers.
