TEHRAN - Bolivia head coach Cesar Farias says the friendly match against Iran will be a good opportunity for their young players to show their potentials.

“We play our rivals at La Paz which is around 3,650 meters above sea level. Playing Iran in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium (1,173m above sea level) will be a different situation for us and we want to experience that,” he added.

“We’ve had a long trip to reach Tehran and I think it will be good for our players to test their bodies in this condition,” he added.

Praising Team Melli as a strong Asian football team, Farias said, “Iran played very well in the 2018 World Cup. They are a well defended football team.”

“We’ve analyzed Iran’s matches in Russia and they are a strong team. I think we will have a good friendly on Tuesday,” he added.

Iran national football team are ranked 33rd in the FIFA ranking and Bolivia are 58th in the ranking.
