Iran promise FIFA woman can attend match

Fifa has been “assured” by Iranian government women will be able to attend the October World Cup qualifier in Tehran, Gianni Infantino, president of the body said on Sunday.

A female Iranian fan died earlier this month, after setting herself on fire to protest against her arrest for attending a match.

Fifa officials have been in Iran this week discussing preparations for the Oct 10 World Cup qualifier against Cambodia, their first home game of the 2022 qualifying competition.
