How are the Portuguese managers getting on in the Asian Cup?
Two Portuguese coaches, and two former Portugal national team managers, will be hoping to deliver glory in Asia this month for two expecting nations.
It is, of course, both Carlos Queiroz and Paulo Bento who are battling it out in the Asian Cup, Queiroz embarking upon his third Asian Cup tournament in charge of Iran since taking over 8 years ago, and Paulo Bento overseeing his first major tournament with South Korea.
Queiroz, who managed Portugal from 1991 to 1993 and then again from 2008 to 2010, has taken Iran to back-to-back World Cup finals, the first Iranian coach to ever do so, but has failed to get passed the quarter finals of the Asian Cup in either of his attempts.
With Iran the highest ranked Asian side in the entire competition, he will be hoping to deliver a trophy come the start of February for a nation craving footballing success.
Bento, meanwhile, has only been in charge of South Korea since August, and has an unbeaten record with his side, with 5 wins and 4 draws, including victories over both Uruguay and Costa Rica and draws against Chile, Panama and Saudi Arabia.
All in all, therefore, there's optimism for both managers and nations heading into the tournament - but how are they getting on so far?
Queiroz's Iran have now completed two of their 3 group games - and have already secured passage into the next round of the competition, in style.
Their first encounter was with Yemen, a clash which Iran came out comfortably in top, winning 5-0 against their counterparts, before they then defeated Vietnam 2-0.
Maximum points so far from the group, but whether they'll finish 1st or 2nd remains to be seen.
Bento, meanwhile, has also overseen a perfect start, albeit not in quite as convincing style.
After a narrow 1-0 victory over the Philippines, South Korea followed that up with another 1-0 victory over Kyrgyzstan to see them get 6 points from 6.
China, however, have also won both their games, and slightly more convincingly, meaning that South Korea are sitting only 2nd in the group.
Both South Korea and China know that they have a place in the next round, but who will get top spot and who will get 2nd will all depend on the result when the two meet on January 16.
