Joy for Vietnam, China & Iran

Vietnam, China and Iran have progressed to the quarterfinals of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 following victories over Jordan, Thailand and Oman, respectively.

Vietnam were made to play out a nerve-racking penalty shootout (4-2) with Jordan after the score was tied at 1-1 at the Rashid Al-Maktoum Stadium.

Meanwhile China fought back from a goal down to defeat Thailand 2-1 at the Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium thanks to a strike from Xiao Zhi (67′) and a penalty from Gao Lin in the 71st minute.

The night’s last Round of 16 clash saw Iran comfortably dispatch Oman 2-0 following first half goals from Alireza Jahanbakhsh (32′) and Ashkan Dejagah (41′).
