Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - The Iranian national team will visit the Rose Bowl on Wednesday, April 28th to participate in an international friendly match with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

"The match against Iran will give us the chance to play against one of Asia's most talented and exciting national teams," said Galaxy GM Doug Hamilton. "We are always looking to bring our fans top international opponents and a team in the midst of World Cup qualifying as Iran will be."

The Galaxy has never lost a match to a team belonging to the Asian Football Confederation. In February of 2001 China was defeated 3-1 by Los Angeles in its home country and in September of 2003 it drew 0-0 at the Home Depot Center.

Iran is at the top of its group in World Cup qualifying and 24th place in FIFA's World rankings. The team is coached by Branko Ivankovic who was in charge of the squad for a third-place finish the 1998 World Cup.
