The Syrian national football team received its first loss in the qualifiers against its Iranian counterpart, with a goal to no response, in the match that brought them together at Azadi Stadium in Iran, in the opening of the decisive round of the World Cup qualifiers in Qatar 2022.
The only goal of the match was scored by Ali Reda Jahanbakhsh in the 57th minute, and our team tried to adjust the result, but it lacked offensive focus, so the match ended with the Iranian team winning with a goal without a response.
Our team will meet its UAE counterpart on the 7th of this month at Al- Qweismeh Stadium in Jordan in its second match in this round. The lineup of our team in the match included Ibrahim Alma, Saad Ahmed, Kamel Hmeisheh, Omar Khribin, Mahmoud Al-Mawas, Muhammad Othman, Thaer Krouma, Khaled Kurdaghli, Abdul Rahman Al-Weis, Israa Hamwieh, and Moayad Khuli.
