Iran books place in AFC futsal quarterfinals

Iran books place in AFC futsal quarterfinals

The Islamic Republic of Iran confirmed its place in quarterfinals of the AFC U-20 Futsal Championship as a 6-1 win over China saw Iran cement top spot in Group D with one game to go.

The victory was Iran’s third straight three-point haul in Bangkok, a fine run of form that has now set up a last eight showdown with either Uzbekistan or Lebanon, reported.

A Zhou Xu own goal after five minutes set Iran on its way at the Hua Mark Indoor Stadium, before strikes from Mohammed Jamebalani and Mohammad Taheri further strengthened Iran’s position going into halftime.


Hamidreza Karimi grabbed Iran’s fourth on 33 minutes, and despite Wang Jiahao finding the net for China, further goals from Mohammad Heidari and Hamid Ghahramani rounded off yet another scintillating Iranian display.

Iran faces Kirghizstan later on Saturday in the last round of group fixtures.
