Iran will face Japan in the final of the Asian Football Confederation Women's Futsal Championships on Saturday (May 12) after each won their respective semi-finals today.

The two teams were victorious in contrasting circumstances, though, at the Indoor Stadium Huamark in Bangkok.

Defending champions Iran took the lead within the opening five minutes and never looked under threat in a 5-0 thrashing of Vietnam.

Veteran Fahimeh Zarei scored one and provided two assists against a team which had won every game before today.

"The first half was brilliant for us," said Iran head coach Shahrzad Mozafar.

"It was a very good start. 

"We had confidence and at the beginning of the game our plan was to put pressure on the Vietnam team and I think it worked well for us. 

"I think this match was the best match for the Iran team and the best performance from our players."
