Why ? you sound like he had a choice and made the bad decision. this happens when a country has 0 friends in the world. how many times can you play Syria and Djibouti? oh sorry, Djibouti cut their ties with us recently. under the current circumstances, these are top notch friendlies, let's hope they don't call it off ...

I doubt you follow TM news, CQ has dropped 3 important players so we got 0% getting out of this group.

iran's friendlies are not that bad compared to some other countries.

I think the friendlies are nowhere as intense as they used to be prior to the world cup, maybe to avoid injuries, to avoid opposing teams to assess players more ... or plain shortage of funds.
We are playing Greece as well, so Turkey, Greece and Lithuania... Not bad considering.
