Group C is one of the most interesting groups as Asia’s top-ranked side Iran will be facing tough challenges from Iraq and Bahrain. Iraq and Bahrain both have a history of causing upsets and producing surprising results. If Iran is not able to perform consistently, this group can be very wide open.

Group B includes Jordan and Australia competing once again at an international stage. Both the sides have won once against each other, Jordan recently defeated Australia 1-0 in the Asian Cup. Chinese Taipei must be having its sight set on the runners up spot looking at this group.

Group E includes our team India that will be facing tough competition from the World Cup hosts Qatar. Qatar will definitely be having an advantage over the other teams. Considering Qatar will likely end the group as table toppers it should be an exciting race between Oman and India for the second spot.
