The first match between the United Arab Emirates and Iraq last October reached a climax, with Kayo Kanedo advancing to the UAE in the first half, but things got complicated in the last quarter of the match, with Iraq drawing level with a friendly. With a goal from UAE defender Mohamed Al Attas, his team made a mistake, then Ayman Hussein advanced to the final minute towards Iraq, with Ali Mbkout equalizing for Emirates in extra time.
The competition will be broadcast on several TV channels, in particular: “Dubai Sport 1 HD”, “Bean Sport 1 HD”, “Abu Dhabi Sport 1”, “Al Arabia Sport”, “Al Qas 5 HD” and “Saudi Sports” 6 HD.
