1 min read

Iranian footballers have erased a 3-goal deficit to post a 5-4 win over Ukraine in their opening Group C game of the the 2019 World Beach Games in Qatar

The Asian powerhouse who were trailing 4-1 by the end of the first period, pulled 1 back through Mohammadali Mokhtari in the middle frame. Mohammad Ahmadzadeh then made it 4-3 with no more than a minute into the third period.

Parity was restored once again as Mehdi Shirmohammadi’s header found its way into the net. And in less than a minute Mokhtari bagged his second to complete the comeback.

Iran will next play Senegal, who beat Paraguay 3-0.
