The 2023 AFC U20 Cup competition has reached the quarter-finals and this is the decisive round for the four teams that want to win tickets to the 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup which will be held in Indonesia in May.
The competition in the quarter-finals will be very fierce as all the teams want to show their best abilities and appear on the biggest stage in football for the U20 age group.
The first match in the quarter-finals brought together two neighboring countries that have close ties in all fields, including football. U20 Iran managed to qualify for the quarter-finals as the winner of group B after gaining 3 points in the group stage after defeating Vietnam U20 with a score of 3-1 against.
The U20 Iran national team managed to excel in the first half with a goal from M. Hazbavi in the 36th minute. However, Vietnam U20 was able to equalize early in the second half through a goal from Khuất Văn Khang in the 56th minute. Iran U20 continued to attack and managed to score their second goal in the 75th minute through S. Saharkhizan. M. Hosseinnezhad then added his third goal in the 90th minute to seal victory for Iran U20.
History records that the Iranian U20s once dominated the Asian region by winning 4 consecutive championships in the 70s. However, since the tournament is held every two years, they have only managed to qualify for the Asian U20 World Cup quarter-finals five times and even in several tournaments they have not made it past the qualifying rounds. Of the four previous occasions, Iran’s U20s have only managed to qualify for the quarter-finals twice and have never won a title.
On the other hand, U20 Iraq is in second place in Group A after hosts Uzbekistan, although they are only ahead of U20 Indonesia who are ranked third in head-to-head. In fact, in the last match, it was unclear whether U20 Iraq would go home if U20 Indonesia managed to beat Uzbekistan with a victory, because they only managed to get a draw against Syria.
The U20 Iraq national team drew 1-1 against Syria U20. Hayder Abdulkareem managed to score the opener for Iraq U20 in the 17th minute, but Syria U20 were able to equalize in the last minute of the match through a goal from Zakaria Al Ramadan.
Although Iraq’s U20 record in the Asian U20 Championships is still a bit behind, they have won three regional titles and reached the semifinals three times since the first tournament was held in 1978.
