'We will be playing the strongest team in Asia. They are technically, tactically and physically better than us but having said that, we will play to our strengths to get the desired result,' said Park Hang-seo.
'It will be very hard for us as Iran are a highly experienced side but my players have got strong mental strength and I believe we can overcome Iran,' the Korean added.
Vietnam, added Park, has forgotten about its heartbreak against Iraq, which saw the team conceding a late goal as it fell 3-2 to the West Asian in its opening Group D tie.
