Zarqa: Syria sealed top spot in Group A of the West Asian Football Federation U-15 Boys Championship 2019 following Bahrain’s 1-0 win over Lebanon on Friday.
Bahrain, who drew 1-1 with Syria in their opening match, needed to beat Lebanon by two clear goals for a chance to advance into the next round, but only a solitary goal by Kamal Saleh separated the two sides at the end.
With both Bahrain and Syria on four points, the slim victory was not enough for Bahrain as Syria advanced into the second round-robin on the Fair Play rule.
Syria will face the top teams from Groups B and C to determine the top three spots in the championship.
