Qatar thrash UAE to reach the Asian Cup football final | News



Qatar beats United Arab Emirates hosts 4-0 to reach the final of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

The winner, who came before a hostile Abu Dhabi crowd, sealed Qatar's progress to the title fight for the first time it faced Japan on Friday.

Qatar opened the scoring with Boualem Khoukhi in the 22nd minute with Almoez Ali adding another 15 minutes later.

Hassan al-Haydos added a third in the 80th minute with a chip over the UAE goalkeeper and Ismaeil sealed Qatar progress with a goal in time injury.

The fight was horrified by crowd disruption twice, when shoes and bottles were thrown at Qatari players celebrating after scoring.

The crowd could be heard chanting and booing during the game of Qatar's national anthem minutes before the start.

"Sports should not be mixed with politics. Sports can make a big impact and bring people together. I hope after this tournament the political situation will improve," he added.

The UAE had hoped to reach the Asian finals for the second time, but instead will likely be subjected to FIFA sanctions according to the amount of trouble.

The tournament has been played against a regional dispute, which saw Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt abolish political, diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar and impose a land, air and sea block in the Gulf Nation in June 2017.

"I apologize to the fans for the result. We tried our best," said UAE coach Alberto Zaccheroni, whose contract ended with the defeat.

"We continued to try, but we have to admit the Qatar team was the better team tonight."

Japan is the most successful team in the Asian Cup with four titles followed by Iran and Saudi Arabia with three.
