Iran beats UAE 1-0 to move atop Asian World Cup qualifying group

Ferydoon Zandi scored in the eighth minute and Iran went on to beat the United Arab Emirates 1-0 on Saturday, moving it atop its Asian World Cup qualifying group.
Zandi chipped the ball over the Emirates' keeper Majed Naser after Masoud Shojaei set him up with a through pass.
The victory gave Iran _ which was held to a 0-0 draw at home by the Emirates five days earlier _ six points atop Group 5, one more than the Emirates and Syria as the third round of qualifying reached its midpoint. Only two from each group advance.
Syria will play Kuwait on Sunday.
