Iran edged past Qatar 1-0 in a Group A fixture of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in Doha.

Iran eventually took the lead in the 52nd minute, when Karim Ansarifard's through ball found Mehdi Taremi in space. The 24-year-old made no mistake and netted the winner. Iran will next take on China at Tehran' s Azadi Stadium on March 28.
