Iran vs Iraq only highlight of the group stages

A decent group for Thailand, and I expect them to progress to the knockout stages, but Vietnam and Philippines really got tough ones :( If they both can beat Yemen and Kyrgyzstan respectively though, there's definitely still a chance of progressing as one of the best performing third-placed teams. Looking forward to the tournament!

After i'd say a succesfull World Cup for Asian teams and Australia i'm looking forward to the competition even more.

Iran has done a wonderful job under Carlos Querioz competition wise and i'd hope he wins a silverware for his adopted country.

Japan will hopefully play in the same gear in Asian Cup as they played in the World Cup.

Queiroz is quitting Iran though, at least that's what he told before the tournament started...

Looking forward to the competition too.

Before the World Cup, he said he was leaving when the tournament ended. So far, though, he's not officially left. I hope he stays, personally.
