Coach: Yemen ready for Iran match

Tehran, Jan 5, IRNA - Yemen's national football team manager said Iranian team had a good performance at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and was one of the best teams in Asia, but Yemen was also ready for this match.

'I am very happy that tomorrow we can start the Asian Cup and set off against one of the best teams in Asia,' Ján Kocian said on Sunday at a news conference ahead of the visit with Iran in the 2019 Asian Cup.

'We know that the Iranian national football team is the claimant in this cup, and there are good players such as Mehdi Taremi, Vahid Amiri and Sardar Azmoon. But we have also analyzed the Iranian national team, and while it is not an easy match, we are looking for the result with our team's style of playing.'

He added, 'There is a big face-off with Iran, and people are talking about this competition, and we have the chance to show ourselves.'

The Yemeni national team manager, pointing to the problems of the team, stated, 'We could not train inside Yemen due to war conditions, and all the camps were held abroad, and we should coordinate between the players working inside and outside the country to make the necessary coordination.”
