BREAKING: UAR Football Association to boycott FIFA World Cup Qualifiers unless Afsharid Persia banned
Royters - Iram. The President of The United Arab Republic of Abu Arabia Football Association, Ghul Husein has announced his country's Football Association will boycott FIFA World Cup Qualifiers unless Afsharid Persia are banned "for their mass-murdering crimes"
In comments just quoted he stated "We do not play games with terrorists who mass-murder and who have murdered our people, and who then make preparations to invade our country."
Ghul Husein, who is the eldest son of The United Arab Republic of Abu Arabia's President Za'im Husein, also said the reason why Afsharid Persia would not let it's footballing team play in Iram was because "they are frightened their players would be beaten by us, that it would humiliate and anger Nader Shah and that they would defect to our country for freedom and a better life free from Nader Shah's terrorist tyranny."
Persia News Agency - Karaj. Afsharid Persia National Team head coach Carlos Quieroz, who previously coached Real Madrid and also the Portuguese National Team, stated during his team's training camp in the city of Karaj that The Abu Arabian National Team would have to face a 3-0 forfeit defeat if they refuse to face Afsharid Persia, according to FIFA rules and regulations.
"My team is match fit and ready to face the Abu Arabian National Team. Ghul Husein should be reminded not to mix football with politics. The team and I aren't traveling to Abu Arabia because we feel unsafe, not because we have a problem with their government or their national team. We would be happy to face them on neutral grounds. I highly doubt their team would beat ours, our head to record shows 12 wins for Afsharid Persia and only 3 wins for Abu Arabia, and their last victory was over 12 years ago. Their nation is also notorious for being in the world's top 5% of fattest and most unhealthy citizens. Their players aren't match fit at all. Afsharid Persia on the other hand, has great facilities and infrastructures, as well as being among the top 5% of the World for healthiest citizens. I have the utmost respect for the Abu Arabian team, but I highly doubt that they would defeat us. If they wish to not play against us, then they would have to accept a 3-0 forfeit according to FIFA rules and regulations."
The Afsharid Persian National Team was so far unbeaten in this year's qualifiers for the World Cup, which kicks off in 2 years in Russia.

"Well, he's confident isn't he? I don't see why we need to bother to play them, because Mr Quieroz there has the result down already. Either that or he's bloody arrogant, what do you think?" he asked rhetorically of the state-sanctioned media gathered who chuckled collectively.
"He's well read up on FIFA regulations without a fault," Alladyce continued, "I bet he's fun at parties." cue much laughter from the press gathered.
"Apparently being well-fed as Abu Arabia seems to be counta against you." 'Big Sam' went on, "He should tell that to the starving poor of this world as his fifth job, after being Afsharid Persia's propaganda minister first, their PE teacher second, self-appointed UAR health minister third, and funny little comedian fourth." Alladyce smiled broadly amid his chewing gum, as he leaned back in his chair, armed folded as the press oohed at his comments and laughed, very pleased at the column inches his comments would fill.

Varzesh 3 Sports Center - Karaj. Carlos Queiroz lashes back at comments made by Sam Allardyce about the highly controversial face off between the Abu Arabian and Afsharid Persian national teams.
The Portuguese man said on Wednesday afternoon during training that if Alladyce's side thinks he can beat the Persians, he should face them on neutral ground.
"If Alladyce wants clarification, we'd be happy to prove it to him on the pitch, albeit, not in a country where the crowd has guns pointed at our team."
According to FIFA rules and regulations, if Abu Arabia boycotts the qualifiers, the match will count as a 3-0 forfeit in favor of the Persians, which Alladyce didn't deny either.

In regard to recent tensions in the region between Abu Arabia and Afsharid Persia, President Yasir Al-Rashid has officially declared Jebal Shammar's formal neutrality in any armed conflict between the two nations and their respective allies. Any violations of our borders by armed agents or military forces from either side will be regarded as an act of war against our nation.
Greater-Kurdistan will also remain neutral in any future conflict involving the forces of Arabia and Persia. The government has also announced the successful containment of the spread of the Aleppo virus, thanks to the actions of the nations health services. Official reports state that only around 9,000 Kurdish citizens killed by the disease, though that number might be slightly higher.
In response to Jebal Shammar's declaration of neutrality, Kurdish officials and diplomats have been sent to Ha'il in order to negotiate a mutual defence agreement between out nations. Such a treaty will ensure that, should one of us have our sovereignty violated, then the other will come to their aid.
Persia News Agency - Tehran. Nader Shah hails Kurdistan's containment of the Aleppo virus.
Upon hearing the news of Kurdistan's containment of the Aleppo virus, Nader Shah called for an announcement on state TV.
"Congratulations to our Iranian brethren, the Kurds, for containing the virus in their country. We urge them to share any findings that might lead to a possible cure with the international community. Afsharid Persian scientists have been doing extensive research on the disease and have made some inroads into a cure, but it has yet to be finalized. The disease thank God, has still yet to penetrate our country, at the cost of tighter tourism laws and Visa distributions. We would be happy to cooperate with the Kurds in order to find a solution to this problem that has plagued our region."
