China (left) and Thailand (right) line up before their match earlier today.
Play is underway at the IBSA Blind Football Asian Championships in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with one game in each group on match day one.

China and Thailand opened pool A in the inaugural match of the tournament. China took a two goal lead but Thailand pulled one back with a magnificent 15-metre strike following a free-kick.

Thailand pushed for an equaliser but couldn't find a way through the well-organised Chinese defence, so the final score was China 2 Thailand 1.

Today's second game saw a group B clash between current Asian champions Iran and South Korea, and it was one-way traffic as Iran defeated the Koreans 3-0.

All games are being streamed live on Facebook by R.AGE, and you can relive today's matches in full on the links below:
