It may be more than three years off, but the first goal of the World Cup 2022 qualifying matches has already been scored. Nine minutes into their first-leg match against Brunei, Mongolia won a free-kick about 25 yards from goal. Up stepped captain N.Tsedenbal, a midfielder of Blue Wolves, to whip home a brilliant left-footed effort into the far corner. It will be remembered as the first goal of the World Cup 2022 for Asia.
N.Nyam-Osor added a second for Mongolia, recorded a 2-0 win over Brunei. The two sides will head to Bandar Seri Begawan for the second leg next Tuesday.
