QPR striker Peter Skapetis scored the only goal as the Olyroos beat Iran 1-0 in the second group game of the Asian Football Confederation U22 championships on Tuesday.
The victory allowed Aurelio Vidmar's Australian U23 side to move to the top of Group C with two wins from two matches following Sunday's 1-0 victory over Kuwait which came courtesy of a first-half goal from Adelaide United's Ryan Kitto.
English Championship club QPR posted a message of congratulations for Skapetis on Twitter.
The Olyroos, who have secured top spot in their group, next meet second-placed Japan on Thursday ahead of a quarter-final against the runner-up of Group D on January 20.
