Albion's Alireza Jahanbakhsh helped Iran to a 2-0 win against Hong Kong in their World Cup qualifier.

Jahanbakhsh has been unable to force his way into the Seagulls' Premier League action so far this term, although he was on the bench for the 4-0 loss at Manchester City before the international break.


He played 87 minutes against hosts Hong Kong today and his neat turn, burst into the box and cross set up Karim Ansarifard for Iran's 54th-minute second at the Hong Kong Stadium.
