Iran beats Syria in AFC Asian Cup

Iran's national football team powerfully defeated Syria at their match in the AFC Asian Cup on Wednesday night.

Team Melli players and their Syrian rivals scored a goal, each, in the first and second half of the game, respectively.

Mehdi Taremi was brought down by the Syrian defender and he converted the penalty with a right-footed shot in the 34th minute at the Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium in Doha, Qatar.

Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand fouled on Pablo Sabbag and the Korean referee awarded a penalty to Syria after a VAR check.

Right-footed Omar Khrbin sent his to the center of the goal to equalize the match in the 74th minute.

The condition went from bad to worse just after the 90th minute after Taremi received his second yellow card.

Team Melli won 5-3 in the shootout after the match had ended 1-1 after extra time.

Iran will meet Japan on Saturday in the competition’s quarterfinals.

Previously, Iran beat United Arab Emirates 2-1 in the last match of the Asian Cup group stage.

The Iranian team has already qualified for the next knockout stage by gaining two wins against Palestine and Hong Kong in their group.
