Lebanon win over UAE!!!


The UAE’s World Cup qualifying hopes were left in tatters on Tuesday evening as they crashed to a humiliating 3-1 defeat to minnows Lebanon in Beirut’s Cite Sportive Stadium leaving Srecko Katanec’s job hanging by a thread.

The defeat leaves the UAE bottom of Group B with no points after two games and with a meeting against group favourites South Korea in Seoul next up, their hopes of reaching Brazil in 2014 look dead and buried.

In Lebanon, the atmosphere maybe hostile but the sheer lack of numbers – although actually relatively large by Lebanese standards, around 6,000 people – in the stands diluted any real chance of intimidation.
