Iran face China on Matchday 2 of the AFC Women's Asian Cup in a Group A fixture at the Mumbai Football Arena in Andheri on Sunday. Iran come into the game after a goalless draw with India while China comfortably beat Chinese Taipei in their opener. Wang Shuang bagged a brace while Wang Shanshan and Zhang Xin scored a goal each.

Iran vs China AFC Women's Asian Cup 2022 Recent Form

After a rather mediocre performance in the friendly series against Uzbekistan, Iran beat Bangladesh and Jordan in AFC Women's Asian Cup qualification matches to make their debut continental appearance. Iran drew goalless with India in the first game, thanks to the heroics in goal from keeper Zohreh Koudaei.

After a below-par campaign at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the Chinese women's football team will be confident of taking the momentum from their Asian Cup opener forward.

The 4-0 win in the first game over Chinese Taipei was their first win after a four-match winless run which included a World Cup qualifying draw with South Korea, two Olympic Games defeats to Brazil and the Netherlands, and a draw with Zambia in Tokyo.
