Qatar vs Uzbekistan 16:15GMT

Qatar vs Uzbekistan

This will be the fourth successive Asian Cup appearance for Qatar but their record in the tournament leaves much to be desired with the Middle Eastern side managing to progress past the group stages just once in their history.
Qatar has not won a game in the competition since securing a shock win over Japan back in the 1988 edition and have drawn eight and lost five of their last 13 games in the tournament. However fans will be hoping for a successful Asian Cup both off and on the field this winter. 

Uzbekistan on the other hand will be hoping for a victorious start to the Asian Cup on Friday against a side that is placed 16 places below them in the FIFA rankings. The White Wolves have successfully progressed to the quarter finals of the competition on the last two occasions and a similar result is the minimum expectation from coach Vadim Abramov.
