Iranian Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs Masoud Soltanifar said that they want to move up in the 2018 Asian Games, Tehran Times daily reported on Sunday.

The Iranian delegation came fifth in the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea behind China, South Korea, Japan and Kazakhstan.

Now, the Iranian minister says they are going to improve their previous ranking in the upcoming Asian Games and ascend to the fourth place.

"We have a busy year ahead of us. First, we will take part in the 2018 World Cup and we want to book a place in the knockout stage for the first time," Soltanifar said.

"We know it will be a difficult task but we will do our best to provide facilities for Team Melli to qualify for the second round," he was quoted as saying.

"We will vie with Indonesia, Thailand and Kazakhstan to finish in the fourth place in the competition," the minister added.
