We saw the group draw (against Qatar) here in Doha, beat Kuwait (On the planet Cup) qualifiers which is very something. Not only from an organizational standpoint, football in Asia is expanding rapidly. From a technical standpoint, I believe we will face intense competition.

As the Ministry of Interior announced a few weeks ago, anyone with a Hayya card from the World Cup can use that card to enter the country. The Hayya will be reached out until after the Asian Cup closes in February 2024. The individuals who don't have Hayya can apply now with practically no limitations. No match tickets are required. They can simply go through the typical cycle to apply for a Hayya or visa to enter the country. It's the same old thing. No additional limitations for this particular competition.
