Iran thrash Cambodia 14-0 on marquee night for female fans

Iran made it a night to remember for female fans allowed into the Azadi Stadium for a World Cup qualifying match for the first time since the Islamic Revolution as they inflicted a record-breaking 14-0 thrashing on Cambodia on Thursday.

Striker Karim Ansarifard scored four goals and Sardar Azmoun hit a hat-trick as the Iranians handed Cambodia their heaviest ever defeat.

The win came as 3,500 female fans were permitted to buy tickets for the game, the first time women have been allowed into the stadium in Tehran for a World Cup qualifier in more than four decades.
