Japan finished the Asian Cup with a disappointing defeat at the final against Qatar. At the end of the tournament, what Japan can learn for the next years?
It was an impressive tournament and they deserved this title. With Almoez Ali and Akram Afif, Qatar became the 2019 Asian Cup winners, winning their first ever continental trophy.
Qatar got a hostile reception in Abu Dhabi tonight, but even that didn’t stop them from defeating the UAE 4-0. After qualifying to their first ever Asian Cup final, can they win again at the final against Japan?
At their previous matches, Japan needed only one good play that was worth a win. Today, they used their advantage in any possible moment and defeated Iran 3-0, all the way to the Asian Cup final.
Iran had the best chances to make history but once again failed to do so. After a bad match of Team Melli, Carlos Queiroz ends his era at the team with a sad defeat against Japan.
