ABU DHABI: Yemen coach Jan Kocian was left scratching for positives after the war-torn country’s first-ever Asian Cup football tournament outing ended in a 5-0 thrashing by Iran.

“We have to live with this result but we have two more games to play and we can play better,” said the Slovakian, striking a defiant tone despite their Group D mugging.
“Iran were physically superior to us — they are a team that plays at the World Cup.
