Since first taking part in Asian Cup qualifiers in 1972, Jordan reached the Asian Championship three times. "I won't say it's an easy group but we have the ability to win against some of these teams and on our day, we can beat a lot of them", Constantine, who attended the draw along with team manager Shanmugam Venkatesh, said.

Speaking at the draw, Chhetri said: "The AFC Asian Cup is an enormous opportunity for us and we are looking forward to it". The top two pots consist of teams who has progressed to the final round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup for AFC countries.

Shaikh Salman on Friday signed an agreement with Japanese sports equipment manufacturer, Molten Corporation to be the Official Match Ball supplier for AFC's national and club events, including the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019. Chhetri was happy to talk to them and advice them but when asked, how the kids can be like him, he said they should aspire to be even better. But then, this time, we have UAE, Thailand and Bahrain - all good sides. India had finished runners-up to Israel in 1964. "We know we will have to beat the best to get to the top and that's what we will do". "This is more of a new team but I hope all the youngsters go and grab their chances", Chhetri told. I have never taken ranking seriously.
