The Iranian national team surprised its Iraqi host with an early goal in the match that brought them together this evening, Tuesday, in the second round of the final Asian qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup.
Iranian striker Alireza Jahanbakhsh surprised the hosts with a quick goal, scoring with a superb header in the second minute of the start of the meeting, which was held at Khalifa International Stadium in the Qatari capital, Doha.
The Iranian team had started its campaign in the final Asian qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup, with a difficult victory over its Syrian guest (1-0), in the meeting that brought them together last Thursday, at the Azadi Stadium in the capital, Tehran.
On the other hand, the Iraqi national team came out with a precious draw at the stadium of its South Korean host, without goals last Thursday as well.
