Azkals draw Korea, China, Kyrgyz Republic in 2019 AFC Asian Cup

Indian football has been on the rise since the last couple of years. Their last appearance came in 2007, where they were co-hosts.

"There were also a couple of them who missed out last time and really kicked on the last few years". Serbian tactician Milovan Rajevac, who took Ghana to the quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup was appointed in April 2017 to lead the South-east nation's charge in UAE.

The Official Draw for the AFC Asian Cup was held at the Armani Hotel Ballroom of the Burj Khalifa, at Dubai on 4th May 2018.

Meanwhile defending champions Australia have drawn in Group B with 2004 and 2011 quarter-finalists Jordan, Palestine, and Syria, who return to the competition following their absence in Australia 2015. But I don't give too much importance to Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings. We'll do our research and treat all three opposition teams equally. I am happy with the kind of performances that we have put, but at the Asia Cup, we are talking about a different stage and a different level of competition. "But I hope these young boys can grab onto the chances they will get". Our home record, they have always been good. "We all will have to be at our best", he added.

"I know by winning the Asian Cup at home what it means to be playing at home", Milicic said. The other 12 qualified teams were placed in the remaining two pots, on the basis of their AFC and FIFA Rankings.

The top two teams from each of the six groups will progress to the second round, as will the best four third-placed finishers.The final is in Abu Dhabi on February 5.

Group A: United Arab Emirates, Thailand, India, Bahrain.

"We need to test ourselves against better opponents because what we are facing is some of the best sides in Asia".

"What I'm really anxious about and looking forward to is winning games for our country, winning games outside our country".

Bahrain coach Miroslav Soukup said: "What can I say, we have a very interesting group".

Shaikh Salman said: "Since 1956 we have had the same trophy and in keeping with the new and exciting future of the competition, the AFC chose to commission a new trophy, one that captures the excitement and drama of the tournament ahead".
