The Iranian team faces a serious issue ahead of the World Cup.
According to ESPN, the American Nike Company, which had to supply the Iranian team with boots, did not fulfill its obligations.
“US sanctions mean that, as a US company, Nike cannot supply shoes to players in the Iranian National team at this time,” Nike said.
The Iranian Football Federation has already applied to FIFA to resolve the issue. Despite the fact that the Iranian team is wearing Adidas uniforms, the German company is not one of the team sponsors because it simply sells its goods to Iranians.
It should be noted that the Iranian team must hold the first round of the World Cup on June 15 with the Moroccan team.
