All the details for the Iran v Japan Asian Cup 2019 semi-final

We’re almost there. The winner of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 will be decided by the end of the week.

But before we reach the final, there’s the little matter of the tournament’s semi-finals to get past.

And the first of those, Iran against Japan will be played in Al Ain tomorrow (Monday, January 28).

It’s a massive game between two of Asia’s very best sides.

The teams will battle it out at the Garden City’s fantastic Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium at 6pm.

Tickets for the game start from Dhs50, and go up to Dhs150.

Both of the sides played in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, with Iran doing well against Morocco and Portugal and losing narrowly to Spain before being knocked out at the group stages.

Japan also won plenty of fans at the tournament, not least for the fans’ ritual of tidying up the stadiums after their team had played.

They made it through the group stages, beating Colombia, drawing with Senegal and losing to Poland in the process. They eventually exited after a defeat to Belgium.

As well as being able to watch the game live, you can also watch it at one of the fan zones which can be found at A’l Bahar on the Corniche and in Al Ain.
