is ready for the ‘big fight’ against hosts Korea in a 2018 FIFA World
Cup qualifying game on Wednesday.
The game will be played at Suwon World Cup Stadium with kick off
slated for 2pm Qatar Standard Time.
“It will be a tough match against a strong side. But we are ready for
the big fight,” he said on Wednesday. “Like our coach said, they are
one of the best sides in Asia. They have skillful players”.
“But we have the right focus for this game. God Willing, we will do
well. We aim to fight the entire game,” he said.

of getting three points,” he said.
