Iran's Beach Football Team - Qualified to Portugal 2015

Iran have booked their ticket to the 2015 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, after an 8-3 victory over Lebanon in the third-placed play-off at the 2015 AFC Beach Soccer Championship in Doha, Qatar.

After a slow start, Iran took a 2-0 lead after the end of the first period before making it 4-0. Lebanon battled to reduce the deficit and scored two goals but Iran kept their foot on the accelerator as they ended the match with an 8-3 win.

Iran will be playing in their sixth FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup while the Lebanese will have to wait to appear at their first global finals on the sand. Iran joins Oman and Japan as Asia’s final representative in Portugal.
