According to a report by Tehran Times, Iran are planning to arrange a friendly with Bangladesh on September 5

The Bangladesh Football Federation is in negotiations with Iran to play an international friendly against the current top-ranked Asian football country in the world, likely to be held in Qatar’s capital Doha during the first week of September.

According to a report by Tehran Times, Iran are planning to arrange a friendly with Bangladesh on September 5.

BFF admitted its negotiations with Iran Football Federation, which has not been confirmed yet.

“We have been in talks with two-three higher-ranked Asian countries to play a friendly before our first game in the World Cup Qualifiers in September. The negotiation with Iran is in advanced level but nothing is finalized yet, even the date of the friendly,” said BFF general secretary Abu Nayeem Shohag Wednesday.

The men in red and green will kick off their campaign in the second round of the 2022 Fifa World Cup and AFC Asian Cup China 2023 joint-qualifiers against Afghanistan on September 10.

Qatar, 2022 World Cup host, South Asia’s top-ranked outfits India and Oman are the other teams in Bangladesh’s group.

It was also learnt that the BFF has approached two other middle-east countries, including Saudi Arabia, to arrange a friendly as Shohag said they are reluctant to play one friendly before the Afghanistan game. 

Shohag also said they are trying to arrange a training camp in Qatar before the game.

Iran are currently the top team among the AFC member association countries in world ranking, and placed 20th in the world. 

Having featured in the last two World Cups, Iran aim to make it three in a row, having been placed in the same group with Iraq, Bahrain, Cambodia and Hong Kong.
