Mahmoud Al Mawas scored five minutes into injury time for Syria to put the result beyond doubt.

With one game remaining, Felix Sanchez's side can not finish in one of the two automatic qualifying places for Russian Federation or take third place in the group, which brings with it a place in a series of playoffs.
