China to face the tough challenge of Iran at Tehran

Marcello Lippi

If China wants to have a shot at the World Cup trophy they must beat probably the toughest team in Asian football at the moment.

Iranian team feels confident as they did not concede a single goal in 540 minutes.

We are happy to be top of the group but there is still work to do,” Iran coach Carlos Queiroz told Associated Press.

“Lippi is a good coach and already we can see that China is better-organized,” added the former Real Madrid coach. “It will be a tough game for us but we are ready to keep trying to get the point to qualify once again.”
