Amanov turns attention to Uzbekistan showdown
January 12, 2019

Abu Dhabi: With dust the settling on Wednesday’s narrow 3-2 loss to Japan, Turkmenistan midfielder Arslanmurat Amanov believes he saw enough positives during the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 Group F tussle to stand his side in good stead when they face regional rivals Uzbekistan at the weekend.

Amanov opened the scoring for the Central Asians with an impressive first-half thunderbolt, before Japan netted three times after the break to seal a win following what had proved to be a stern test for the four-time Asian champions.

Despite the defeat, and given that Turkmenistan still have two group stage games to play, hope continues to spring eternal for Yazguly Hojageldiyev’s charges – with Amanov now targeting all three points from the Uzbekistan encounter.

“Of course, the Japan team is a strong one and we expected that they would perform well,” declared the 28-year-old.
