Asian Games football

Qatar beat Iran last night in a packed Al Sadd stadium, inflicting the first defeat on Iran in fifteen Asian Games football matches. Sebastian Quintana scored the first of two goals at 28 minutes. Hussain Yaser Adbulrahman, a former English League player, then scored a second goald, bouncing the ball off a defender into the net 74 minutes into the game. The large Qatari crowd was ecstatic, shooting down the Corniche after the game to celebrate by driving their landcruisers up and down the Corniche. Qatar will now meet Iraq (who earlier beat the Koreans 1-0) in the finals.
