Hmm, was hoping that the Iraqis can replicate their run in 2007. From the looks of things, likely it is going to be South Korean, Japan or Saudi Arabia. The dark horse for me is Kuwait.

I'd say Australia has more of a chance than Japan, due to the fact in our peak of summer we do get conditions like Qatar.

You have a point there. I have to say though, we just have to wait and see of any of our predictions come through. One thing I learn about these competitions, expect the unexpected as nothing usually goes according to plan.

Don't forget that a lot of the Australian squad plays most their football in Europe (just like most the Japanese squad). I doubt it would give Australia any real advantage. At least not compared to countries like Qatar and Bahrain.

Qatari football is one giant joke that nobody outside Qatar finds funny.

I saw the game last evening. It was shocking to see that NOT EVEN THE HOST NATION can fill up a stadium in Qatar. It's a shame that such a country gets to organize a World Cup, just because of money, instead of other football loving nations. In any other country, where football has tradition, there would have been a boom of enthusiasm, after being awarded with such an event, like the World Cup. Qatar has nothing to do with football whatsoever!

Its incredible.Apparently ,in the WC bid pitch there was a pool of 700 million in close proximity and the Arab world being totally united by the decision on Dec 2 have voted overwhelmingly not to back the tiny tiny tiny tiny host country by attending

And apparently there were at least 9 nationalised players for Qatar in that match

Pretty sure even the FIFA World Cup doesn't allow 10,000 seats for media and I've been to quite a few WC matches

Just love to know how many people are paying for tickets-or are people getting in free or even being paid to go??

Khalifa International Stadium
Capacity: 50,000-10,000 =40,000

Al-Gharafa Stadium
Capacity: 25,000-10,000 =15,000

Ahmed bin Ali Stadium
Capacity: 25,000-10,000 =15,000

Qatar SC Stadium
Capacity: 20,000 -10,000 =10,000

Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium
Capacity: 17,000 -10,000 =7,000
Any person will common sense would guess that the Opening and Final matches have their own specifications.

I have to say, it is only the first match. It is hard to judge if this event is going to be a success or a failure. You know, maybe the other matches may attract the crowd. Don't forget a couple of neighbouring countries are also participating so a lot of supporters could be on their way there. We just have to wait until the end of the Asian Cup to pass any judgement.

Great opening ceremony and excellent official song.

As for many comments made on here so far, many still do feel bitter about what happened a month ago, and that will not go away easily. Expect many sly remarks about this event from many, as in the eyes of many, Qatar have so much to prove, and will likely have to work miracles to overcome the perceived way that the WC bid was won.

Lets hope this Asian Cup is a great one though.

The Opening ceremony and the song is okay I guess but the part about praising the emir in poetry, well, not my cup of tea. Like I said, it is still an okay opening. Anyway, I am looking forward to Iraq-Iran match on Tuesday. Would also like to see how China fares against Kuwait tonight.

I liked the light show, the flag section and fireworks most. That poetry thing was the lowlight of it all, but overall was a good start. Openings of the WC and Asian Cup are never really show stoppers, unlike an Olympic games for example.

I agree. I would also like to see of China have any improvement. In the end though, I think Kuwait would still win it at least 1-0. Just being a little conservative on my prediction.

Yup....in the presence of players such as Mosa'ed Nada, Fahd Al-Aneezy and Badr Al-Mtawa'a, Kuwait will not be an easy opponent for China

Is there 10,000 media there????

And so by that logic your telling me capacity will be far greater at the other matches at Khalifa or whatever its called.We should see a crowd of 46,000 for the only other 2 matches there in the group stage-Qatar games.

I note Australia play 2 group matches at Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium, Doha which will having seating for 7,000 after the media take up residence.We had 14 times that in Germany in 2006 and 5 times that at SA2010 yet it(7,000 and 8,250) was the crowd size when Australia played Qatar in WCQ in Doha

Surely 17,000 capacity(minus the massive media contingent) devalues the Asian Cup

I dont think big numbers of Australians are heading to Doha for this event TBH. I would rather the matches be played in full, smaller venues, than 1/4 full bigger ones.

The Asian Cup is not the WC by any measure, and Australians are still getting used to being in this event, and what it entails for us. It will take time, but as we are hosting the next one in 2015, that may be the turning point in public opinion.
