TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Foolad Soccer Team Coach Hossein Faraki said that they want to beat the Qatari representative in the AFC Champions League group stage tomorrow.

Foolad is scheduled to face Al Jaish in Group B of the competitions in Doha’s Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium on Tuesday.

“We want to win against Al Jaish, that’s why we are here. Not only in this match, but also in all matches in the AFC Champions League we are going to win the matches,” Faraki said in the pre-match news conference.

“Al Jaish is second in the Qatari league and they are a strong team. I think to earn a draw in an away game against them is not bad too,” he added.

“I’ve already played for Al Sadd many years ago and I am happy to be here once again. I have to say Qatar football has greatly improved over the past years,” Faraki stated.

Bunyodkor of Uzbekistan will face debutant and new Saudi champion Al Fateh in this group.
