Iran drew with Qatar in Group E of the 2014 World Cup qualifier on Tuesday. The Iranian team was held to a 1-1 draw by Qatar at Doha's Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium.

Iran defender Hadi Aghili gave the visiting team a lead just one minute into the second half with a header.


Carlos Queiroz's team missed so many chances afterward. In the 56th minute, Mohammed El Sayed put the ball in the back of the net to salvage a point for Qatar.
