It will be a long journey but before talking about the 2020 Summer Olympics, Iran U23 will need to take care of business against Turkmenistan, Iraq, and Yemen.
The ten group winners and six best second-placed teams will qualify to the 2020 AFC U23 Championship that will be played in Thailand.
We know the rest: the top three teams will qualify to the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
We need to face the facts and realize that it is difficult to qualify to the Olympics, but the journey starts on 22 March when Iran hosts Turkmenistan at Azadi Stadium.
Good luck to Team Omid!
