Beginning with Football news, and the latest from the Russia 2018 World Cup Qualifiers, where Sardar Azmoun was the Star of the Match, as Iran completed an Unbeaten Run in the Competition with a comfortable 2-nil victory over Oman at Azadi Stadium.

The Iranians came to the match with a Superior 15 goal difference compared to their Rivals, and were almost certain to finish on TOP of the Group, even if they lost the three-point lead with a defeat to 2nd-placed Oman.

However, Carlos Queiroz’s men started brilliantly and took the lead in the 16th minute through Sardar Azmoun’s powerful header.

Azmoun then made it TWO, 8 minutes later, NEATLY flicking Ashkan Dejagah’s corner into the net.

The Rostov striker’s first-half brace was enough for the hosts to win their final Group D match, securing Team Melli’s Qualification to Asia’s Round 3 of World Cup Qualifying.
