Tasnim – HANOI, Vietnam coach Park Hang-seo says beating Iran in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup is very difficult.
Vietnam has been drawn along with Iran, Iraq and Yemen in Group D of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.
The Vietnamese team will start the campaign with a match against Iraq on January 8.
“After winning the AFF Suzuki Cup triumph, the fans’ expectations are high at the Asian Cup. The first goal of the Vietnamese team is to qualify for the next round,” Hang-seo said.
“To advance to the Round of 16, you have to earn at least four points. It’s very difficult to beat Iran but we will go on if we can overcome Yemen and Iraq,” the South Korean added.
The 2019 AFC Asian Cup is scheduled to be held in the UAE from January 5 to February 1.
