MUSCAT, Jan 8 (KUNA) -- The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar tied here
Thursday as part of the Group B of the 19th Arabian Gulf Cup soccer tournament
at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex.
The game was equal in performance as the UAE was better in the first half,
while Qatar was better in the second half.
But, the overall match was not so heated that both teams were reserved and
cautious and there were no serious scoring opportunities.
Thus, the UAE holds four points, while Qatar has only two points.
They will play Saudi Arabia and Yemen respectively next Sunday in the final
leg of the first round of the Gulf event. (end)
