The command towers of each country have issued a “show” for the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup카지노사이트.
First of all, Qatar national team coach Carlos Queiroz said, “The most important thing is to join the ranks of the best team in Asia and the best team in the world.”
According to the Associated Press, Queiroz said, “Our goal is to compete with the best teams and beat them. It’s time to move. When the Asian Cup starts, we will prepare well to defend our title.”
Qatar defeated Japan 3-1 in the Asian Cup final held just before in 2019 and lifted the championship trophy for the first time ever. Qatar, the ‘defending champion’, appointed ‘Asian football expert’ coach Queiros in February after being eliminated from the group stage at the World Cup held in their country last year.
Portuguese coach Queiroz was recognized for his ability while working as Manchester United (England) head coach under Alex Ferguson in the early and mid-2000s, and since the late 2000s, he has coached several national teams.
In 2011-2019 and 2022, he made achievements, such as twice bringing the Iranian national team to the World Cup finals for three consecutive times. Following the World Cup, Qatar, with Queiroz as its coach, is set to host the Asian Cup as well. The competition, featuring 24 countries, will open on January 12, 2024.
Qatar is tied in Group A along with China, Tajikistan and Lebanon.
Coach Graham Arnold, who led Australia to the World Cup round of 16 for the first time in 16 years last year, said, “The next World Cup qualifier is important, but this tournament is also important to me and Australia.”
Coach Arnold added, “You always have to expect to win in a tournament like this,” and added, “As you know, we are going into this tournament with a great mindset and expecting good results.”
Australia compete in Group B with Uzbekistan, Syria and India. Japan’s coach Hajime Moriyasu, who is tied in Group D with Iraq and Vietnam, as well as Indonesia led by Shin Tae-yong, also expressed his aspirations, saying, “The goal is to win,” Kyodo News reported.
“We are in a very difficult group,” Moriyas added. Coach Amir Galenoi, who took over as head coach of the Iranian national team after Queiroz, who left for Qatar, expressed his confidence, “We must respect all teams. Everyone will prepare 100% for this tournament, but we are also a very good team.”
Iran were drawn in Group C with the United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong and Palestine.
Coach Klinsman, who leads the Korean national team, also said through the Korea Football Association after the group draw, “Our goal is to pass the group stage and go to the end of the tournament.” Then, when asked to pick a candidate for the championship, “In last year’s World Cup, Saudi Arabia beat Argentina, and Japan beat Germany and Spain.”
