Iran Downs Brunei at AFC U-20 Asian Cup 2023 Qualifiers

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran overpowered Brunei Darussalam 8-0 in the AFC U-20 Asian Cup Uzbekistan 2023 Qualifiers on Friday.

Midfielder Mohammad Reza Torabi put them ahead in the 23rd minute and that paved the way for total domination as Ebrahimzadeh (27th) and Mojtaba Fakhrian (45+1) secured a comfortable lead going into the break.

Iran was relentless in the second half with Hossein Hajizadeh scoring its fourth in the 56th minute.

It was the Ebrahimzadeh show after that as he struck in the 67th, 70th, 71st and 77th minutes to complete an impressive win for Iran.
