Javokhir Sokhibov, Igor Sergeev and Jaloliddin Masharipov scored as Uzbekistan claimed third place in Group C at the AFC U23 Championship after edging out Yemen 3-1 on Tuesday at Suhaim Bin Hamad Stadium.
Both sides were unable to qualify for the quarter-finals following earlier defeats by Korea Republic and Iraq, but it was Uzbekistan who ended the campaign on a high as midfielder Sokhibov struck after 18 minutes.

And with captain Sergeev heading home just after the hour mark and Jaloliddin Masharipov netting in stoppage time, Uzbekistan bagged third spot having earlier lost 2-1 to Korea and 3-2 to Iraq, while Yemen finished without a point after losing 2-0 to Iraq and 5-0 to Korea despite Ahmed Al Sarori’s late long range consolation.
