    Get to know our opponents in the upcoming Qualifiers



    Meet your Persian Love Today
    Sorry to make a new thread for this but I thought it would get lost in the TM thread and I dont want to clutter that thread even more. For those unfamiliar with these nations and want to see them in action, I've compiled a few videos of full length matches that are fairly recent. I couldn't find anything with Guam and being last seed, I feel that we should pick up the 6 points without too many obstacles. It is likely that the other teams will not have friendlies before their first games on June 11th so I hope that our TM staff will use these videos/match footage and not just assume that we will coast through them(like the mistake we made versus Lebanon last cycle)

    It's true in football anything can happen and upsets do happen but it wont be the case with these teams. Only real test will be Oman and Afghanistan will obviously play their hearts out against us but not enough to cause an upset. We can use our young upcoming players for most matches and let them gain some international experience IMO.

    The video Nepal vs. India Persepolis#1 posted was played at a Nepalese stadium.

    India has a few decent large capacity stadiums, they hosted Bayern Munich in Oliver Kahns farewell match at the Salt Lake Stadium:

    They have invested in football facilities in recent years, especially as this year was the inauguration of the India Super League in order to increase the sports popularity with many big investors.

    In any case, I would consider Oman the only major threat in the group. However we should not underestimate any of our opponents. Just like previous qualiying for Brazil, many expected us to destroy Maldives, in the end we only beat them 4-0 in Azadi and 1-0 in Maldives.

    I guess for India it will be the match of the year against us! And the stadium will be full!

    And please don't forget Oman's Al-Habsi, although Oman isn't really a big deal in Asia, but Al-Habsi is really a good Asian goalkeeper with a lot of experience!

    This is what the indian coach is saying about the draw

    "Yesterday afternoon in Malaysia the draw for the 2018 World Cup in Russia took place as well as the first stage of the 2019 Asian Cup in the UAE. Sitting at home in Cyprus I waited to see the draw live and online and was joined by my wife and the 3 girls. Waiting for your team to be drawn is almost as exciting as seeing the other teams drawn in your group and well am really looking forward to the challenge.

    Starting with team Meli Iran what can you say about this team they are one of the giants of Asian football consistent and full of quality all over the pitch. I have had the pleasure of going to Iran several times; the warmth of the people is what strikes you the most although I don’t think we will see this at the Azadi stadium !!"
