The Iranian team left here Sunday to participate in the competition which will be held in Manila, the Philippines Aug 1-11, reports Xinhua.
“We are going to win the title but five or six other teams want to do that. Teams such as South Korea and the Philippines as well as China are dangerous,” Iran‘s Slovenian coach Memi Becirovic said before leaving here.
“I believe in my team and without a doubt I am coach of the best Asian team in the competition. We have won Williams Jones Cup last month and it shows we are on the right track,” he said.
The Iranians have been drawn against China, South Korea and Malaysia in Group C of the championship. They will face Malaysia Aug 1 in Pasay’s Mall of Asia Arena and will play South Korea and China in the following days.
