  • Description

    The 17th Asian Youth Soccer tournament, held this year in Kuwait, ended in complete deadlock on Sunday (April 20).

    In the final, Iran and Iraq -- despite plenty of fast, attacking football -- ended full time without having been able to produce a goal between them.

    So the game went into extra time. When this, too, turned out to be a goalless stalemate, Kuwait Social Affairs Minister Sheikh Salem Sabah Al-Salem was obliged to present the trophy to the captains of both teams then paraded it across the pitch to cheers of 25,000 people.

    As curtain raiser to the final, Kuwait and North Korea battled it out in the play-off for third place. Here there were plenty of goals -- but continuing deadlock. The game ended in a 2-2 draw.
