Defending Champions Mes Sungun have powered past Uzbekistan’s AGMK 7-3, to set up a thrilling final showdown against three-time champions, Nagoya Oceans of Japan.
The Iranian side got off to a ruthless start and grabbed a 4-0 lead in the first half, before slowing down to concede two goals. After the restart, the Uzbeks pushed for more, but they were punished when Mes Sungun extended their lead through Alireza Askari.
AMGK responded immediately to keep the deficit at two, and initiated the power-play, but their plan backfired as Mes Sungun came up with two more goals, and booked their ticket for the ultimate battle on Saturday, against Japanese side Nagoya. That’s while, AGMK will take on Vietnam’s Thai Son Nam FC in the third place play-off.
