East Asian Cup 2015

The EAFF East Asian Cup kicks off in China on the 1st August, and while the squads involved are stripped of the European based stars for the 4 team round robin tournament, the event will give us a greater insight into the manager’s plans for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers and which domestic gems are set to break into the national team picture over the long run.

We’ve put together a number of previews of the competing nations, exploring the key questions and players that we’ll be keeping an eye out for. Keep posted to this page for regular updates throughout the tournament,
