Svetlana Zhurova spoke about cooperation between Russia and Iran in sports

Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Svetlana Zhurova spoke about the sports in which Iran and Russia will cooperate.
“Cooperation with Iran will be, first of all, in a number of summer sports. Football is the easiest in terms of organization, a football match is the fastest to organize, ”Vprognoze.ru quotes Zhurova.

Zhurova also noted that due to the lack of many women’s sports in Iran, football was the easiest choice.

Earlier today it was reported that in March the national teams of Russia and Iran will play a friendly match in Tehran. The game should take place on March 22-23. The national teams of these countries were supposed to hold a friendly match in November 2022, but the game was postponed.

At the moment, all Russian clubs and teams are suspended from FIFA and UEFA tournaments. The national team was unable to compete for a ticket to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar through the play-offs, missed the Nations League draw, and was also not allowed to participate in the draw for the European Championship 2024 qualifying tournament.

Russia played three friendly matches in 2022. Wards of Valery Karpin played against Kyrgyzstan (2:1), Tajikistan (0:0) and Uzbekistan (0:0).

At the end of 2022, the RFU announced the creation of a working group on the possible withdrawal of the organization from UEFA and the transition to the Asian Football Confederation.
