Iran advance to 2020 AFC U23 Championship

TEHRAN – Iran and Iraq football teams ended the 2020 AFC U23 Championship qualification with a goalless draw on Tuesday.

Iraq advanced to the 2020 AFC U23 Championship as Group C winners and Iran booked a place at the competition as one of four best runners-up.

The 11 group winners and four best runners-up joined hosts Thailand in the 2020 finals in January.

The 2020 AFC U23 Championship will be the fourth edition of the AFC U23 Championship, the biennial international age-restricted football championship organized by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) for the men's under-23 national teams of Asia.

The tournament will be held from Jan. 8 to 26, 2020 in Thailand.

This AFC U23 Championship will act as the AFC qualifiers for the Olympic football tournament.

The top three teams of the tournament will qualify for the 2020 Summer Olympics men's football tournament in Japan as the AFC representatives.



Mount Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in Asia.
