Caught on Camera: AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 

Saturday, May 2, 2020

Kuala Lumpur: Ever since it burst into life just over six decades ago, the AFC Asian Cup has been a constant source of joy for football fans throughout our Continent.

From Korea Republic’s triumph in 1956 to Qatar’s success last year, the competition has come to represent Asian football at its finest, the embodiment of all that is good about the game we love so dearly. Of course, much has changed since the AFC Asian Cup’s inaugural event.

Both on and off the pitch, the continental gathering has moved with the times and morphed from its somewhat humble beginnings into a showpiece tournament which is now admired around the world.
