Iran hammered Cambodia in what turned out to be a massive 14-0 victory for Team Melli in the Asian 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers encounter at the Azadi Stadium in Tehran, Iran.
Marc Wilmots’s men were ruthless from the very beginning as Ahmad Nourollahi opened the scoring for them in the fifth minute. It was all one-way traffic after that as seven Iran players combined to send 13 more goals past Cambodia.
This was Keisuke Honda’s side heaviest defeat in their football history. The worst-ever defeat they had suffered before this was a 10-0 loss against Indonesia back in 1995. And understandably, fans trolled Cambodia after the shambolic performance!
Women in #Iran attend a football (soccer) game for the first time.

After a 40-year ban, female fans have been allowed into the stadium to watch Iran’s national team play Cambodia 🙌

Maybe Iran actually will let women into the stadium more often now given they are 12-0 up against Cambodia after 67 minutes

68 mins played. Iran 12 Cambodia 0.
The first match in Iran where women can attend.
Do we read anything on this.

Gotta love Cambodia’s dedication to keep the ball on the ground, play out from the back, really just do what Iran are doing on a whole different level. That’s how you grow despite bad losses…

Got a bit nervous at the end there
