In the AFC under-19 Championship qualifiers, Iran have dominantly topped group D, after shipping 4 late, unanswered goals to Nepal. 

Iran were held off to a goalless action by Nepal, but with 15 minutes left on the clock Alireza Monazzami broke the deadlock, before Ahmadreza Jalali doubled the lead in the 82nd minute.

Three minutes later, Monazzami rounded the keeper to complete his brace, and Aria Barzegar added a fourth just before the final whistle to put the icing on the cake.

With the win, Iran moved up to the top of Group D with six points in pocket, three ahead of the UAE who suffered a 2-nil defeat against Kyrgyzstan earlier the day.
