Kosovo has canceled the pre-planned friendly match against Iran and this is the fourth time Team Melli is suffering from a match cancellation as it prepares for the FIFA World Cup Russia.
Initially Iran was due to play Greece on Saturday in Istanbul, but the European side called off the game last week.
According, the Greek Football Federation claimed the game was canceled due to recent political problems between Greece and Turkey, but said they are ready to play with Iran in Athens. The two sides did not reach an agreement in the end.
The Iranian federation has said it intends to report the Greek FA to FIFA regarding the cancellation, Varzesh3 reported.
