font size    

Host Qatar beat Iran 2-0 to enter the men's soccer final at the Doha Asian Games on Tuesday.

The match began at 1900 (1400 GMT) at Al-Sadd Football Stadium which was filled with thousands of Qatari funs.

Qatar gained upper hand from the very beginning. Their two fast- paced strikers Abdularhman Hussain Yaser and Quintana Sebastian broke the Iranian defense time and again.

Qatar opened the scoring in the 28th minute when Sebastian powered the ball into left lower corner with a long shot from the right corner of the box.

After the interval, the Iranian side strengthened attacks but created few scoring chances.

Meanwhile, Iran left too much room for Qatari strikers and paid price. Qatari forward Yaser sealed the victory in the 74th minute when his powerful shot hit one Iranian defender's leg and deflected into the net.

Qatar will face Iraq, who stunned South Korea 1-0 earlier in the day, in the final on Dec. 15.
