Guam going home
Karim Bagheri: Joint World Cup goalscorer record
Iran's and Charlton's Karim Bagheri
Guam have been eliminated from their World Cup qualifying group after a humiliating 16-0 defeat against Tajikistan.

The defeat came on the back of 19-0 thrashing on Friday at the hands of Iran, a record for both goals and victory margin in a World Cup qualifier.

The Maldives held the previous record after a 17-0 drubbing against Iran in 1997.

Iranian international and Charlton Athletic striker Karim Bagheri scored six goals against Guam.

Guam, an unincorporated United States Territory in the Pacific Ocean, is ranked joint 200th with Bhutan in Fifa's official team standings.
