Team Melli is scheduled to play Japan in the final match of the 2022 AFC Futsal Asian Cup and Shamsaei believes that his team wants more achievements.

"It's so hard to replace some legends with young players. But the first day I got this position, our vision was to be in the final of the World Cup," Shamsaei, who has won the AFC Futsal Asian Cup eight times as a player, told

"We know it is a long road ahead, but that's the target and we want to achieve that. We have 14 Vahid Shamsaeis in our team," he added.

"We can't predict the next match, but we made it for this game. Whenever I come to the press conference, everyone always asks how many goals you (could have) scored or are going to score. Let's accept that Thailand, Japan, Uzbekistan and Vietnam are all tough teams in Asia," Shamsaei concluded.
