Players and representatives of the Federation met yesterday afternoon in Durango to try to reach an agreement, but finally the Basque selection will not play its friendly match.
Finally, the Iran and Basque selection will not play their friendly match. Players and representatives of the Basque Federation of Soccer met on Wednesday evening in Durango to try to come to an agreement after soccer players announced they would not play if the selection was not named Euskal Herria.
In the meeting, the soccer players proposed to play under the name of Euskal Selekzioa, but the Federation did not accept it since it understands that the official name is Euskadi Selekzioa.
The news has not become official until today when the Federation has confirmed the match suspension.
What's this for nonsense? Why can't we play as Euskal Herria, which is our name? Just like we over the past years?
