Oman friendly on the card.

The Iranian football federation has requested a friendly international match against Oman in May 2017.

Team Melli is one win away from the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. The match against Uzbekistan in Azadi Stadium will be a decider and the countdown for qualification. Three match points against the tough Uzbek , who themselves  have a chance of qualifying , will take Iran directly to the World Cup. The victory will raise the points tally of Team Melli to 20, leaving the third place Uzbekistan 8 points behind with two matches left. That is an unassailable lead for Team Melli regardless to the result of the last two matches. 

In case of a draw against Uzbekistan , Team Melli will still need one point from the two remaining matches against Korea (away) and Syria (home) to qualify.

FFIRI proposes 24th or 26th of May for the match. Oman football federation has not responded yet.
