PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Iran’s national team for the World Cup will not be receiving cleats, according to Nike.

Nike said due to U.S. sanction on Iran, and as a U.S. company, Nike can’t supply gear to the Iranian national team.

A spokesperson said this has nothing to do with President Trump’s recent announcement to re-impose economic sanction of Iran as previous sanctions already existed.

Iran plays its first match against Portugal on Friday at the World Cup held in Russia.
