Shojaei, Haji Safi barred from Iran national team for playing against Israelis
Iran national football team captain Masoud Shojaei and midfielder Ehsan Haji Safi have been barred from the team duty for life after they faced an Israeli club in the Europa League.


B
oth Shojaei and Hajisafi had refused to play in the away leg in Israel, despite facing "pressure" and "financial fines" from their club but they played at the home leg on August 4, where Panionios lost the game 0-1 and the tie 0-2 on aggregate.

Iran's football federation "strongly condemned" the players last week, saying it is reviewing the case and would make a final decision after speaking with both players.

Haji Safi has made 84 caps and score six goals fort Team Melli, while Shojaei has 71 caps and eight goals.
