Iran 0-0 Syria: Iran troubled in Tehran

TEHRAN, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Iran got their 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign off to a disappointing start when they were held to a 0-0 draw by part-timers Syria on Wednesday.

The three-times Asian Cup winners failed to score for a

fifth successive game, despite being at full strength and having

the advantage of their imposing Azadi stadium.

Iran, three-times World Cup qualifiers, are still without a

coach, with former Spain boss Javier Clemente stalling on

signing a contract.

Surprise third round qualifiers Syria ditched their Italian

coach Antonio Cabrini last month after failing to secure funding

for his salary.

Iran and Syria contest the all-Middle East Group Five with

the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, who play later on Wednesday

in Abu Dhabi.
