Less than a month before the 20-19 Asian Cup in the UAE, the Asian Football Confederation has released the list of 10 target men, as the most threatening strikers in Asia, whose nations rely on their goal scoring skills.

Sardar Azmoun of Iran has been included in the list. The Russia-based forward who netted 2 goals for Team Melli in the Asian Cup Australia 2015 will turn 24 just before the tournament and is in good shape to boost his record for The Cheetahs.

Football is a very popular sport in Iran and Iranian fans of this sport watch not only the national events of the filed, but also the fixtures between renowned football clubs from around the world.

Earlier in November, President of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Shaikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa visited Tehran to watch the final event of the AFC Champions League (ACL) between Iran’s Perspolis and the Japanese representative Kashima Antlers in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium.

During his stay in Tehran, Shaikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa met with Iranian First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri.

In the meeting between the two, Jahangiri expressed his appreciation to the International Federation of Football Associations for all efforts of the international body to avoid political issues in football.
