1 The match was abandoned after 61 minutes with Iran leading 1-0 after North Korea walked off the pitch due to firecrackers thrown from the crowd; despite the instructions of the referee, North Korea refused to return to the pitch. The match was awarded 3-0 to Iran, who were ordered to play their next home match in an official AFC or FIFA competition behind closed doors.
