After a rather mediocre performance in the friendly series against Uzbekistan, Iran beat Bangladesh and Jordan in AFC Women's Asian Cup qualification matches to make their debut continental appearance. Iran drew goalless with India in the first game, thanks to the heroics in goal from keeper Zohreh Koudaei.
After a below-par campaign at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the Chinese women's football team will be confident of taking the momentum from their Asian Cup opener forward.
The 4-0 win in the first game over Chinese Taipei was their first win after a four-match winless run which included a World Cup qualifying draw with South Korea, two Olympic Games defeats to Brazil and the Netherlands, and a draw with Zambia in Tokyo.
