Venezuela seeks positive end to the year with Iran friendly in Doha


The Venezuelan soccer team will measure itself against Iran to close out this year’s preparatory tour for the Copa de América 2019 at the Al Ahli Stadium in Doha, Qatar.

La Vinotinto comes into the friendly after a draw against Japan and wins against Panama and the United Arab Emirates.



With the draw against the Nipponese, who have not seen defeat since the end of July, Venezuela left a good image with a scheme that allowed improvements in handling the ball with short passes and break on the flanks.

The squad led by Rafael Dudamel will again face Iran almost 12 months after they did in the Dutch city of Nijmegen, on November 13, 2017, in a close commitment that the Iranians won by the minimum difference.

Meanwhile, Iran, under the orders of Portuguese Carlos Queiroz approaches the rematch after defeating Bolivia 2-1, who are also led under the command of Venezuelan César Farías.

Team Melli also won their recent friendly matches against Uzbekistan and Trinidad & Tobago, both 1-0 victories, in preparation for the AFC Asian Cup 2019 in Dubai, UAE.



With this commitment the Venezuelan team will complete a total of six friendlies in 2018 in preparation for the Copa América Brazil 2019 and the start of the South American qualifier for Qatar 2022.
