Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may visit the national soccer team during the World Cup, the head of Iran's soccer association said Sunday as the squad arrived to a colorful and boisterous welcome in this southern German city. A visit by the Iranian leader would create huge security headaches for both the German government and the organizers of the tournament, and could possibly spark violent protests from exiled opposition groups such as the National Council of Resistance of Iran. Dadkhan's statement was the first indication that Ahmadinejad might attend the tournament. Previously, both German and Iranian officials had reiterated that this would not happen.
