The quarter-final line-up is complete at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-23 Championship in Thailand, with United Arab Emirates (UAE) coming out on top of Group D.

They faced Jordan in their final group game at Buriram Stadium and started well, with Mohammed Shaker putting the ball in the net early in the first half, but it was disallowed for offside. 

However, UAE took a deserved lead before halftime, thanks to a close-range finish from Zayed Al Ameri.

But Jordan came out strongly for the second half, peppering the UAE goal with numerous shots. 

It was no surprise when Jordan equalised in the 79th minute, with left-back Ihab Ali Al poking the ball home after an outstanding run.

With the match finishing 1-1, UAE topped the group on goal difference with five points, while Jordan also made the last eight - both teams were unbeaten.

The other match at Rajamangala Stadium, Bangkok, was effectively a dead rubber, as North Korea defeated Vietnam 2-1 to finish third in the group, with Vietnam bottom.

There is a rest day tomorrow before the quarter-finals begin on Saturday (January 18), with Australia playing Syria and Saudi Arabia facing home favourites Thailand. 

Sunday (January 19) sees South Korea up against Jordan and UAE playing Uzbekistan. 

All of the last eight sides have moved one step closer to the Olympics, as the best three teams qualify for Tokyo 2020.

The final is scheduled for January 26.
