Asian Cup Football: Iran vs Uzbekistan… Ooops.

11 07 2007

AFC Asian Cup… did he just score an own goal?National Stadium Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – So this game began about as inauspiciously as any football game could: with an own goal. At a little after the 16 minute mark, defender Rahman Rezaei slotted one home for Iran – into his own goal. Ouch.

For the vast majority of the game, that was the scoreline: 1-0, Uzbekistan’s lone strike coming off sheer ineptitude. Then lo & behold, the tenor of the game changed – Iran definitely looked like a different team in the 2nd half. Dashing defender, Seyed Jalal Hosseini, found the net (this time the right one!), and equalized at the 55 minute mark! Iran continued to press the Uzbekistan defense, and nearing completion of the game, moved ahead with a great goal from Javed Kazemian (78 min). Time ran out for the Uzbekistan boys, and the Iranians ran out due winners… with three goals to their name… just 1 in the wrong net.
