Qatar to face North Korea in AFC Asian Cup

Al Ain, Qatar’s football team on Sunday will face North Korea’s team in the second round of Group E matches in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup in Al Ain.

The Qatari team held their final exercise before the game in presence of HE Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Ahmed Al-Thani, President of Qatar Football Association. The team showed up great shape and exhibited strong determination to achieve their second consecutive win and boost their chances of qualifying for the next round, (the last-16).

In the first round of Group E, the Qatari team beat Lebanon 2-0 and Saudi Arabia beat North Korea 4-0 to top Group E standing, ahead of Qatar, the second, with a goal difference. Lebanon are third and North Korea are forth with zero points each.

Qatar coach Felix Sanchez has stressed his team will not be changing their style of play when they take on North Korea in their next Group E clash in Al Ain on Sunday despite struggling to turn their dominance into goals when they met Lebanon last Wednesday.
