Syria draw with Iran to keep Russia 2018 qualifying hopes alive

Syria scored an injury-time equaliser to earn a 2-2 draw against Iran and keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The visitors took a shock lead through Tamer Haj Mohamad’s stooping header – the first goal Carlos Queiroz’s Iran had conceded in 10 qualifying games.

But on the stroke of half-time, Sardar Azmoun headed Iran level before giving them a second-half lead.

Syria looked to be heading out, but Omar Al Somah coolly slotted home.

South Korea’s goalless draw with Uzbekistan allowed them to claim second place in Group A in the Asian section and automatic progression to Russia.

It means Syria will face Australia in a playoff in October, before having to face a Concacaf side in another two-legged tie the following month for a place at the World Cup.
