Iran demolished Lebanon by nine goals to finish the group phase at the AFC Futsal Asian Cup in emphatic fashion.

Salar Aqapour and skipper Hossein Tayyebi bagged a double, with Saeed Ahmad-Abbasi, Moslem Olad-Qobad, Bahman Ja’fari, Mohammad-Hossein Bazyar, and Mehdi Karimi also on the scoresheet as the 12-time champion made clean sweep of three victories in Group C, following wins against Indonesia (5-0) and Chinese Taipei (10-1).

Vahid Shamsaei’s men will take on Vietnam in the quarterfinals today at Kuwait City’s Saad Al Abdullah Hall, with the winner facing Tajikistan or two-time runner-up Thailand in the semifinals.

Vietnam beat South Korea (5-1) and Saudi Arabia (3-1) but a 2-0 defeat against Japan on Sunday saw the Southeast Asian finish second in a group that Japan and Saudi Arabia also collected six points – only to be separated by goal difference.

Japan will play Indonesia in the last-eight round with Uzbekistan, winner of Group B with a perfect record, facing Kuwait, which finished second to Thailand in Group A.
