Iran cruise in AFC U-20 Futsal Championship 2017

Bangkok:  Iran confirmed their place in quarter-finals of the AFC U-20 Futsal Championship as a 6-1 win over China saw them 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.  

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

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 next game: May 20, Islamic Republic of Iran v Kyrgyz Republic

China: Wang 34’
Iran: Zhou 5’ (OG), Jamebalani 15’, Taheri 19’, Karimi 33’, Heidari 36’, Ghahramani 40’
