TEHRAN - Team Melli drew 2-2 with Syria national football team here at the Azadi Stadium on Tuesday. The already-qualified Iranian football team had not conceded a single goal before this match but Syria ended their run of clean sheets.


Tamer Mohamad scored in the 13th minute before Iran equalized through Sardar Azmoun, who chested in a rebound on the stroke of half-time.

The Rubin Kazan striker, who was named Man of the Match, put the hosts ahead in the 64th minute.

Omar Al-Soma's 93rd minute goal kept Syria's World Cup qualification dream alive.

They will now play Group B's third-placed team Australia in play-offs, with the winner going into an intercontinental clash against the fourth-placed side from the CONCACAF federation.
