Jordan drawn alongside Australia for 2019 Asian Cup

AFC Asian Cup Draw : As It Happened

The 2019 Asian Cup will be played at eight venues in four cities in the UAE - Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Al Ain - in a tournament that will run from January 5 to February 1.

"What I'm really anxious about and looking forward to is winning games for our country, winning games outside our country". Our home record is fairly good but outside home we have really struggled.

"I was part of the National Team in 2011 in Doha where we last played in the Continental Championship".

Sunil Chhetri said Team India will be concentrating on preparing well and hard to put up a fight in the 2019 Asian Cup in UAE.

Australia will face Syria, so almost their nemesis in the recent World Cup qualifiers, Jordan, who beat Ange Postecoglou's men in Amman in one of the earlier group games in qualification for the 2018 World Cup, and Palestine.




The team coached by Stephen Constantine topped their group consisting of the Kyrgyz Republic, Myanmar and Macau in the third playoff qualification round to earn an entry into the draw from Pot 3. This time, India has been grouped with UAE, Thailand and Bahrain. You should judge your own team first, how we are doing and how we will be in 6 months and then you form your opinion.

"We're going to look to now do well away from Australia, away from home with different tests and challenges but it's one we're definitely looking forward to and will be well prepared for".

Asia's most prestigious worldwide football competition will kick-off in the UAE on January 5, 2019.

Sunil Chhetri, who turns 34 this August, does not agree with the view that India has got an easier group this time as compared to the 2011 edition. We are 14th or 15th in Asia, it's very important to stay there and go into the top 10. The Azkals qualified for the quadrennial meet for the first time in late March following a 2-1 victory over Tajikistan at the Rizal Stadium. "We know we will have to beat the best to get to the top and that's what we will do". "What we have to deal with is a much bigger stage and it will not help by what we have done before", he said. "I could not have asked for anything more".

Bengaluru FC, established in 2013, are now in a hard position to qualify for the knock-out round of AFC Cup after losing 0-2 to New Radiants of Maldives in Male in a group match. I have never taken ranking seriously.
