Tasnim – TEHRAN, Iran national football team coach Carlos Queiroz says it is time to climb for Team Melli in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.
“This is not the time to make things easy or comfortable. This is the time to deliver, with full focus, commitment and determination. To reach excellence we need to enjoy the adversities and sacrifices of our journey,” Queiroz posted on his Instagram account.
“You climb and you go up to rise to the top and shine, or you don’t climb and you rock and roll down to the bottom of darkness,” he added.
Iran has been drawn with Iraq, Yemen and Vietnam in Group D of the AFC Asian Cup.
The 2019 AFC Asian Cup will be held in the United Arab Emirates from January 5 to February 1, 2019.
