Press TV - Crossing over to Asia, Iranís national team have celebrated their 1st victory under Marc Wilmots, after thrashing Syria 5-nil in a friendly match at the Azadi Stadium; Mehdi Taremi was definitely the man of the match.

But, that wasnít the end of Syria's misery, as Iran once again rippled the net through 17-year old Allahyar Sayyadmanesh on another set-piece, with 2 minutes to go. Up next, Iran is set to take on South Korea on Tuesday.
