2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers - Iran beats Cambodia by 14-0

Iran beats Cambodia by 14-0 in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers Group C match on Thursday. The match was played at the Azadi Stadium having the capacity of 100 thousand people in the Iranian capital, Tehran.

Iran players were ruthless from the very beginning as Ahmad Nourollahi opened the scoreboard in the fifth minute.

Ansarifard (4) and Azmoun (3) help the team Iran to a remarkable score line in Tehran.

This was the Cambodian side’s 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.

It was the historic moment for the women in Iran, who got to watch a FIFA soccer game from inside a stadium for the first time in almost 40 years.

Last month, a woman died after burning herself over a jail sentence for violating Iran’s male-only policy for stadiums. As she watched the match disguised as a boy.
