For the first time in its history, Syria reached the second round of the 2024 FIFA Asia Cup after defeating India last week.

It is noteworthy that the Syrian national team is participating in this tournament with a team that includes many new faces, and some of the players “do not speak Arabic” and some of them were not born in Syria.

Syria will face Iran in a match scheduled for Wednesday evening, January 31, in a tournament hosted by Qatar until February 10.

What do we know about the characteristics of this team, which plays with “remarkable harmony” under the leadership of well-known Argentine coach Hector Cuper? What are his chances of winning?
