Good Win against UAE, Carlos Queiroz Says
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian national football team coach Carlos Queiroz said that his men have earned a good win against the beat west Asian team, the UAE.
Iranian national football team defeated the Emirati outfit 1-0 in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup on Monday.
“In my opinion, it was a good win against the UAE as the team is the best football team in West Asia – they have good combinations and have played together for a long time. It is difficult to play against them as they play like a club team,” Carlos Queiroz said in the post match news conference.
"Iran showed good concentration and played with a fantastic attitude and were willing to sacrifice for the team," he said.
"We played a passing game and were better than UAE in terms of penetration and movement. It was a great football game, very emotional and skilful," the Portuguese coach added.
Queiroz's men will now face the second placed side from Group D in Canberra while the UAE will take on the top of Group D in Sydney. Both matches are scheduled for January 23.
