AFC – ABU DHABI, Some of the greatest minds in world football will be fixing their sights on Asia’s ultimate prize as the anticipation builds towards the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019, which kicks off in just 15 days with hosts UAE taking on Bahrain at the Zayed Sports City Stadium.

Islamic Republic of Iran’s head coach Carlos Queiroz has the honour of helping three teams qualify for the FIFA World Cup – South Africa, then with his native Portugal and twice with Team Melli in 2014 and 2018.

“Eight years ago, when I came to the Islamic Republic of Iran, we faced challenges and issues. Now eight years later, we are heading to the UAE for the AFC Asian Cup and the most important legacy we leave is the infrastructure for our future generations,” said the former Real Madrid manager.

“The most important thing for the national team is to conquer the hearts of the people and satisfy the majority who quietly love the national team. I believe that all these players are doing their best and with the help of God, I hope we can have the best performance in the AFC Asian Cup,” added Queiroz.
