Iran not underestimating Myanmar: Zlatko Kranjcar

August 18, 2018 - 15:22

TEHRAN – Iran U23 football coach Zlatko Kranjcar insisted that they will not underestimate Myanmar in the 2018 Asian Games.

On Monday, Iran will face Myanmar at the Patriot Chandrabhaga Stadium in Bekasi, Indonesia.

Myanmar have a little chance of qualifying for the next stage.

“We had a good performance against DPR Korea but we are not allowed to underestimate any team. We will take nothing for granted against Myanmar,” Kranjcar said.

Iran started the campaign with a goalless draw against Saudi Arabia.

The Persians defeated DPR Korea 3-0 in their second match.

Now, Iran will face Myanmar to determine the group winner.

Iran have a strong legacy in men's soccer, having won gold on four occasions.

Zlatko Kranjcar's footballers will look to end a drought that extends back to 2002.
