FilGoal | News | Things that never happened before.. Italian report: The Azzurri may participate in the World Cup because of Iran


The Italian “Sport Media Set” network claimed that there is a possible scenario for the Azzurri to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, although it admitted that the scenario is very far from happening.

So what is the story?

According to the report, the International Football Association “FIFA” may exclude Iran from participating in the World Cup because they prevented women from entering the stadiums.

According to the report, Iran prevented 2,000 women from entering the stadium against Lebanon in the Asian qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup, despite having purchased tickets.

Thus, the Iranian Federation did not listen to FIFA’s warnings in 2019 to stop banning women from entering stadiums.

The Italian report indicated that Mehrdad Seradsky, a member of the Iranian Football Association, hinted through his account on the social networking site “Twitter” that he had heard “disturbing news from FIFA and the AFC about Iran’s position.”

Accordingly, and if FIFA decides to exclude Iran, FIFA will choose the highest-ranked player who did not qualify for the World Cup to participate in the tournament, in which case it will be Italy.

The Italian national team failed to qualify for the World Cup after losing the semi-final match against North Macedonia with a goal without a response.

Never before has FIFA excluded any team from the World Cup after qualifying for it throughout history.
