Uzbekistan beat Oman 1-0 to progress to the AFC U23 Championship China 2018 Quarter-finals at the Jiangyin Sports Center Stadium on Monday. An own goal from Thani Al Rushaidi in the first half was enough to give Uzbekistan a second place finish in Group A, while Oman exited the tournament with no wins to their name.

Pakhtakor left back Khojiakbar Alijonov’s first half strike proved the difference as Uzbekistan secured a vital 1-0 win over China PR in Group A of the AFC U23 Championship 2018. The win leaves the Uzbeks level with China on three points and, ahead of the day’s later game between Oman and Qatar, both teams can still genuinely harbour ambitions of sealing a spot in the quarter-finals with one game apiece still to play.

Almoez Ali's goal leaves Qatar second in Group A behind table-topping China PR who beat Oman 3-0 in the day’s earlier game.
