Zimbabwe have been held 1-1 by Iran at the Afro Asian Games in Hyderabad, India, while Burkina Faso, also in Pool A, lost 1-0 to Uzbekistan.

Zimbabwe took an early lead with Ronald Badza finding the net after just three minutes.

Iran's equalizer came on the hour mark thanks to Syed Khoshkebijaril.

Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso and Rwanda are the only African representatives in India after Ghana withdrew at the last minute.

The African sides line up against Iran, Malaysia, India and Uzbekistan from Asia.

Zimbabwe's draw with Iran follows their 4-1 crushing of Burkina Faso earlier in the week.

Zimbabwe's victory came thanks to two goals apiece from Vusumuzi Prince and Albert Mbano, while Barros Seydou struck for Burkina Faso.

In Pool B, Rwanda started their campaign badly with a 3-1 loss to hosts India and will be hoping to do better against Malaysia on Sunday, in a match that decides who joins India in the semi-finals.
