How do you think the asian teams will do in the WC?
Will the asian teams continue the amazing progress they had in the last World Cup? Wil teams like South Korea and Japan do good again?
And how do you guys rate Irans and Saudi Arabias chances in this tournament.
I personally feel that South Korea and Japan have been playing well after the World Cup and should continue their progress, especially due to the fact that there are many more players from these countries in Europe nowadays and they have played with some of the greats and gain valuable knowledge.
Iran has perhaps the best chances, they have ended up in an easier group than their asian nemesis, and will have fairly good chances to qualify from the group.
Saudi Arabia should have problems in my opinion. They are in a tough group with Spain, Ukraine and Tunisia (possibly the best team in Africa) and shoud have difficulties in qualifying to the next phase..
