Iran the only team from Asia that can adapt to football in the world stage. Although kudos to Japan but they seemed more lucky.

Iran in such a tough grp yet managed to push 2 world football powerhouse all the way. If that Iran striker scored at the death, they would have topped the grp. Such fine margin but Iran really won my heart
Because they have continuity with Carlos Quieroz
Other asian team like to chop and change their coach, especially Saudi Arabia.

Japan and Iran have a number of players playing in Europe as well. That really helps alot in their play. Korean may be better if most of their players weren't injured but compare to the other 2 nation, they need more players exploring their option in Europe.

At least saudi beat Egypt. Finally win after such a long time of winless streak

I wonder football is really based on genetics and physique.

I know many pple dislike China but their investment in sports is huge. Not to mention their population. Look at their Olympics gold. All their athletes train from young. I wonder what willl happen if they are super serious in football (instead of just buying old FT from foreign leagues).
