Iran’s First Real Test against Bahrain: FIFA
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – FIFA said on Monday that Iran national football team will be tested against Bahrain on Tuesday's matchday 4 of Asia’s Round 2 qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar.
Iran national football team (also known as Team Melli) will meet Bahrain at the Bahrain National Stadium in Riffa.
“In Group C, Marc Wilmots' free-scoring Iran will likely have its first real test against host Bahrain who famously inflicted a 3-1 defeat on Team Melli on the road to Korea/Japan 2002. Any slip-ups by Iran will benefit Iraq, who can move to the top of the table with a win in Cambodia,” FIFA.com reported.
Iran has defeated Hong Kong 2-0 and Cambodia 14-0 so far.
