Iran men's national football team, domestically known as Team Melli, is going to play a friendly fixture against Panama next month as part of preparations for the 2018 Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup.

The Panamanian Football Federation, known as FEPAFUT, announced in a statement that the match has been scheduled for November 10 in the Austrian capital city of Vienna, and will give both national teams the chance to put their abilities to the test before starting their campaigns at the world championship of association football.

On October 10, Russia held the Iran men’s national football team to a one-all draw in a FIFA World Cup warm-up match.

Team Melli defeated had defeated Togo’s Les Eperviers (The Sparrow Hawks) 2-0 in a fixture staged at Azadi Stadium in western Tehran five days earlier.

The Iran national football team defeated Uzbekistan 2-0 at Tehran’s Azadi Stadium on June 12, and became the first Asian team - and the third squad after Brazil and hosts Russia - to secure its place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Azmoun opened the scoring for the host team in the 23rd minute.

Mehdi Taremi found the back of the net from inside the area in the 88th minute, and finished off the White Wolves.

This is the second time in a row that Team Melli has won the ticket for the FIFA World Cup finals under the tutelage of its 64-year-old Portuguese head coach Carlos Queiroz.
