(Pang-masa) - January 6, 2019 - 12:00am

ABU DHABI, Uni­ted Arab Emirates — Ang 2019 Asian Cup ay may mala­king ko­lek­syon ng mga international coaching heavyweights.

Ilan dito ay sina Mar­cello Lippi na gumi­ya sa Italy sa World Cup title noong 2006 at Sven-Go­ran Eriksson na gu­magabay sa Philippine Az­kals.

Kinuha ng Philippine Football Federation ang Swede para sa Azkals.

“With this generation of players, the Phi­lippines have the chance to show that football is good in the Philippines,” sabi ni Eriksson, dinala ang England sa quarter­finals ng World Cup no­ong 2002 at 2006. “If we can go through that will mean a lot for the country.”

Nakamit naman ni Lippi ang Chi­nese Super League at Asian Champions League titles para sa Guangzhou Evergrande.

Maglalaro ang China sa Asian Cup na may isang panalo lamang sa pitong laro.

Ang runner-up no­ong 1984 at 2004, lalabanan ng China ang Kyrgyzstan kasunod ang Azkals at South Korea sa Group C.
