2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying: Third placed Uzbeks look to bounce back against China


10-11-2016 14:41 BJT

Against China, Uzbekistan are also facing a must-win situation to stay in contention in Group A as the Uzbeks look to bounce back from a home defeat to Iran on Thursday.

Uzbekistan won their first two games beating both Syria and Qatar 1-0. Following their defeat to Iran, they dropped to third place.

Against China, Samvel Babayan's men will play without Anzur Ismailov and Alexander Geynrikh, but will of course aim for three points at home, because that's just what you do.

Samvel Babayan said, "This match is crucial to both teams. We all know that China is a strong team in Asia. Speaking of Chinese football, we think of the Super League. It's one of the best leagues in Asia."

"This is why I said China is a team that keeps improving and developing. China's players are skillful and play smart football. So before the match, we've studied the China's strategy and will try to win this match."
