New Delhi:

Indian football team's international friendly against Yemen, which was slated to be played on November 14 in Guwahati, has been cancelled after the visiting team informed AIFF that they won't be able to make the trip due to ticketing problems.

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) on Thursday received an e-mail from the Yemen Football Association (YFA) stating that their tickets for the trip were cancelled by The Gulf Airlines.

"The Gulf Airlines cancelled our reservations for late notification," the mail stated.

The AIFF tried to communicate with their Yemeni counterparts but repeated efforts proved futile. The issue, however, has been reported to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

The AIFF made best endeavours to find a replacement team but failed to arrange one because of paucity of time, the national federation said in a release.
