Sardar Azmoun (IRN)
2015 AFC Asian Cup
Qatar v Islamic Republic of Iran (15.01.2015)

Sardar Azmoun scored a fabulous opportunistic goal which earned Iran a 1-0 win over Qatar and a place in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup quarter-finals.

Solid Qatari defending had kept Iran at bay until shortly after half-time in Sydney when Azmoun's instinctive touch and shot ended their resistance and sent a partisan crowd wild.

Younis Mahmoud (IRQ)
2007 AFC Asian Cup
Iraq v Saudi Arabia (29.07.2007)

One of the most iconic moments in the history of Iraq’s 2007 AFC Asian Cup campaign was their triumph over Saudi Arabia in the final at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta.

The deadlock was broken in the 71st minute when Iraq midfielder Hawar Mulla Mohammed sent in a corner from the right and Younis Mahmoud rose high to nod home the winner past Saudi Arabia goalkeeper Yasser Al Mosailem.

The poll has ended. Thank you for voting.
