Paatoop.com- The Iranians have defeated Qatar 1-0 in Doha in  AFC’s Third Round of the 2018 World Cup Qualifications.

Despite a below-par performance in Doha, Team Melli defeated Qatar 1-0, with a lone goal from Mehdi Taremi (52′).

After six out of ten matches being played in the Third Round of the 2018 WCQ (AFC), Iran has yet to allow a goal against.

Things worked out well for the Iranians, as the other two matches in Group A ended in their favour: China was able to defeat South Korea 1-0, and Syria also beat Uzbekistan 1-0, therefore spreading the points out in Iran’s advantage.

Iran now sits on top of Group A, with 14 points from six matches; South Korea is second with 10 points; Uzbekistan third with 9 points; and Syria has become a new contender for qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, as they now have 8 points.

On March 28th, China will face Iran in Asia’s most intimidating arena: Azadi Stadium.
