Futsalroos in the the Quarters of the AFC Futsal Championships


Both sides were playing for a place in the last eight and it looked like it was to be Tajikistan’s day as they raced to a two-goal lead after eight minutes with strikes from Khurshed Makhmudov and Sherzod Jumaev.

Australia pulled one back through Greg Giovenali before Ray Miller equalised in the 20th minute.

Sherzod restored the lead for Tajikistan two minutes into the second half but Petar Rogic immediately equalised and Miller then put the Australians ahead.

But Steven Knight’s side had Simon Keith sent off after 30 minutes and Sherzod completed his hat-trick as Tajikistan drew level with 10 minutes remaining.

However, Rogic scored again with four minutes remaining to secure the win and set-up a quarter-final clash for the Futsalroos against hosts Uzbekistan.
