Bahrain and Palestine will play for the third place on Monday
The second edition of the WAFF Beach Soccer Championship has reached the day of deciders after the UAE and Oman secured a place in the final.
Ramiro Amarelle’s team were the first ones to confirm their attendance in the final after a match that had all the action reserved for the second period. UAE were leading 1-0 after the first period against Bahrain who managed to equalise but four goals in four minutes settled the scoredboard in favour of the Al-Abyad.
In the other semi-final, it was all equal between Oman and Palestine at the end of the second period with the scoreboard showing a result of 2-2. But Talib Al-Thanawi’s men were the better team in the decisive period and put four past the Palestinians to win 6-3.
In the 5th-7th place playoff Kuwait reacted to the previous day’s 4-3 loss against Saudi Arabia and beat Lebanon 3-2.
