Famous win ... Uzbekistan players celebrate their success (Getty)

Uzbekistan secured first place in Group D at the FIFA U-17 World Cup thanks to a 2-1 win over the Czech Republic.

With the USA and New Zealand battling out a goalless draw it meant Uzbekistan finished first with six points.

The Czech Republic's Lucas Julis came close when his effort hit the post, but soon after the same player had a shot that was handled in the Uzbekistan penalty area, and the striker converted the resulting spot kick.

Uzbekistan was back on level terms just before the break, however, Timur Khakimov making it 1-1.

And 17 minutes from time Uzbekistan captain Abbosbek Makhstaliev netted what proved to be the winner after being set up by substitute Davlatbek Yarbekov.
