Iran, Saudi Arabia Draw 0-0 in Asian Games

Iran U23 football team representing the nation at the Asian Games drew 0-0 against Saudi Arabia on Wednesday in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Saudi Arabia, quarterfinalists in the 2014 Asian Games, put early pressure on the opponent and attacked Iran’s defense and Haroune Moussa Camara came close when his effort hit the post in the sixth minute, the AFC reported on its website.
Iran players found themselves in trouble again in the 14th minute but Awn Muylaq Alsaluli’s free-kick was off the mark.
Saudis had their chances to score but were denied by Iran custodian Mahdi Amini Zazerani, who saved efforts from Ayman Shafiq Alkhulaif in the 36th minute and Ayman Shafiq Alkhulaif a minute later.
Four-time Asian Games champions, Iran, however, continued to struggle in front of the goal as the first half ended goalless.
Iran performed better after the restart as its passing improved but Mohammad Moslemipour and Mehdi Qaedi wasted golden opportunities in front of the goal.
Iran will face North Korea on Friday while Saudi Arabia will take on Myanmar.
