Glory hunters

Iraq will be bidding for a sixth title while Uzbekistan are chasing their maiden crown.

Goals hard to come by

Uzbekistan are in the final despite having scored only four goals throughout the tournament. Iraq, however, have found the back of the net six times in five matches.

Red hot

Ali Jasim will be the Iraqi player Uzbekistan have to look out for with the winger having scored in the quarterfinal and semifinal wins against Iran and Japan respectively.

Race for Yili Top Scorer Award

No player from either finalists looks likely to walk away with the Yili Top Scorer award with Japan’s Naoki Kumata on five goals, three more than the aforementioned Jasim.

Master creator

Abbosbek Fayzullaev will certainly be pulling the strings for Uzbekistan, with the forward having created 19 chances en route to the final. Iraq’s player to watch will be Jasim, with the winger having created 13 chances on top of his two goals.


The goals may have eluded Uzbekistan but the Central Asian side have had more shots on target compared to Iraq – 27 to 22.

Bunyodkor cauldron

Uzbekistan’s 12th man – their fans – are set to pack the Bunyodkor Stadium yet again with each of the previous four matches the hosts played at the venue witnessing crowds in excess of 32,000.
