Iran into AFC U16 Championship finals

TEHRAN - Iran are through to the AFC U16 Championship 2020 Finals as Group C winners after beating Afghanistan 4-0 in Hamedan, Iran on Sunday.

Iran will make their 12th appearance in the Finals as they sailed to three wins in Group C, with Afghanistan finishing as group runners-up.

Both sides came into the match needing a win, but it was Iran who took the lead through Mohammad Reza Kooshki in the 17th minute.

Iran doubled their advantage two minutes into added time with Yadegar Rostami converting a spot-kick, the-afc. com reported.

Rostami found the back of the net again in the 59th minute and Kooshki doubled his tally in the 76th to seal an emphatic win.



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