Saudi Arabia crowned AFC U-23 champion

Saudi Arabia was crowned the AFC U23 Asian Cup Uzbekistan 2022 champion after beating Uzbekistan 2-0 in the final on Sunday.

The young Green Falcons turned on the power in the second half with Ahmed Alghamdi and Firas Albrikan finding the back of the net as Saudi Arabia lifted the title for the first time after having finished runners-up in 2013 and 2020.

The 2022 title was won with Saudi Arabia not conceding a single goal in six matches. Not surprisingly, the early minutes at the Bunyodkor Stadium were a cagey affair with neither team willing to take risks.
