Tehran Times – AMMAN, Iran’s Shahrdari Sirjan defeated Bunyodkor of Uzbekistan 2-1 at the 2021 AFC Women’s Club Championship on Sunday.

Roghayeh Jalalnasab abd Zahra Alizadeh were on target for Shahrdari Sirjan.

Shahrdari is scheduled to meet Indian Gokulam Kerala on Wednesday and play Amman SC of Jordan on Saturday, respectively.

Shahrdari Sirjan head coach Maryam Nejati praised her charges for their 2-1 victory over Uzbekistan’s FC Bunyodkor in the AFC Women’s Club Championship 2021 on Sunday and said the win proves that hard work pays off.

“I’m very thankful that we claimed our first victory in this competition,” said Nejati “This result is dedicated to the people back home in Iran and this proves that hard work pays off.”

“We studied how Bunyodkor would approach the game and played out a few scenarios during training. It was useful as we managed to utilize what we have trained for during the match effectively.

“I’m so proud of my players, they each had different roles and they played well. It was not an easy match, but we identified their weaknesses on the left flank and played to our advantage.

“Now with the three points in the bag, we will switch focus to the next match against India’s Gokulam Kerala,” she added.
