AFC Asian Cup: Azkals grouped with China, South Korea

However, Chhetri who will turn 34 in August will be the first Indian player to have played in two editions of the continental tournament when he takes the field in January. However, we have to study the opponents very carefully.

Advancing to the 2019 Asian Cup set for the UAE in 2019 was not a hard task against relatively unknown teams in the Asian continent.

But Jordan also have recent success against the Socceroos, defeating them in World Cup qualifiers at home in both 2012 and 2015 - though equally also losing heavily to the green and gold on Australian soil in each cycle. He's going to develop at a faster rate than I or others did. "Right now we are far but it's moving in the right direction", Chhetri explained.

Australia assistant coach Ante Milicic says he expects the UAE to represent formidable hosts when the Asian Cup kicks off in the Emirates early next year.

This is for the first time that an Indian footballer was asked to be associated with the draw ceremony for the Asian championship.

"Now they have a chance to get a little bit of revenge against us", Milicic said.

"2011, we had an established team where we had seniors and where the team had been playing for 3-4 years".

Chhetri, India's all-time leading scorer, will be the lynchpin of the team.

Obviously it will not be easy but I think there are possibilities to qualify from this group". Thailand is the most improved nation in the last 6 years. We would also have to adjust our own style of play.

"I am happy with the kind of performance we have put into".

The Bengaluru FC captain is the poster boy of Indian football and he has inspired tons of kids of take up the sport. They are competing with the best in Asia. "The AFC Asian Cup gives us the opportunity to rub shoulders with the best of Asia and play against players who many of whom play in many a Premier League across Europe, and other parts of the world".

"Don't be like me, be better". We have to make sure we use the tournament exposure well. KIA is providing a massive opportunity.

THE Philippine Azkals will have a tall mountain to scale in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup after being grouped with South Korea, China and Kyrgyzstan in the draw on Friday evening in Dubai.

"The players are very professional and we're going to think only about the football", he said. "What we have to deal with is a much bigger stage and it will not help by what we have done before", he said. But I don't give too much importance to Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings. Our home record, they have always been good.
