    What did the coaches say before their campaign opener?

    "We've come here for a reason - to win this Asian Cup. It's the only tournament that we probably can win. It is difficult, but we're coming here to Qatar where we have a lot of familiarity, all the boys love coming here. You've got to reach for the stars and have high expectations, we'll do that right from the start," coach Graham Arnold said ahead of their AFC Asian Cup opener.

    "We definitely didn't come here to defend on the edge of the box. We're going to go out there and try to enjoy football, as we did in the last four years. That's been the process we've been working on and if the defeat comes through that process, I have nothing against it," coach Igor Stimac said ahead of their AFC Asian Cup opening game.
