    Jakarta: 32 countries have confirmed participation in men's football at the 2018 Asian Games, making it the largest ever.

    “The number of teams is amazing," said Indonesia Asian Games Organising Committee head Erick Thohir.

    The 18th Asian Games, to be held in Jakarta and Palembang, is on August 18 to September 2.

    Football is an Under-23 affair at the Asian Games, with each team allowed three overaged players.

    Korea Republic won the men's football gold medal in the 2014 Incheon edition, with DPR Korea second and Iraq third.

    “The number of football participants is equal to the FIFA World Cup."

    Asian Games ditch soccer redraw plans, will add omitted teams - KFA

    (Reuters) - The Asian Games will not redraw the men's football tournament after two countries were left out of the first draw but will instead fit the United Arab Emirates and Palestine into two of the original groups, the Korea Football Association (KFA) said on Wednesday.

    A new draw was set to take place at the Asian Football Confederation headquarters in Malaysia later on Wednesday but that plan had been scrapped following the AFC's meeting with Games organisers and the Olympic Council of Asia, the KFA added.

    With the addition of the two teams, two of the six groups will contain five sides, while the remaining four groups will each have four teams.

    The KFA said fixtures would be announced once the UAE and Palestine were sorted into their groups.

    Palestine is drawn into Group A with us while UAE is in Group E.

    What a lousy way of organizing tournament football.

    I guess Indonesia don't take any chances. Even if their weightlifters and badminton players are better athletes than their mediocre football team, football is by far biggest sport and the Asian Games will end when Indonesia gets knocked out in men's football. Because of this "draw" it won't happen in group stage and probably because of this "draw" they will also get an easy opponent on 1st knockout round.

    IFF sent u21 team and many key u21 players like Noorafkan, Shekari, Naderi, Sajad Aghaei, Reza Azari, etc. are missing the tournament because the clubs refused to release them. Anyway It is still a good experience for the players that are going to participate.
