DOHA: Al Wakrah on Saturday edgedAl Shamal 2-1 on penalty

shootouts to reach the third round of the Emir Cup.

In the game played at Suhaim bin Hamad Stadium, Wakrah – six

time Emir Cup finalists – couldn’t force an outright victory which

saw the teams needing a penalty shootout to decide a winner.

Abdulrahman Mesaad and Abdulrahman Mohammed scored for

the winners.

Al Wakrah will now meet Al Sailiya in the second round of

the Emir Cup on Thursday at the Grand Hamad Stadium.

The two teams presented a feisty contest, engaging in rough

tackles for ball possession.

However, the stalemate was ended when Al Wakrah players

dominated the penalty shootout.

Simultaneously, Al Kharaitiyat reached the third round of the

Emir Cup after Mahmoud Saad’s goal gifted them victory over

Qatar Sports Club.

Al Kharaitiyat, just about deserved victory, with Hassan Abdelfatah

and company going close on several occasions throughout the 90

minutes of play. Conversely, it was a largely disappointing display

from Qatar SC, who despite the attempts of coach Sebastiao Lazaroni

to recuperate, continued to break the hearts of their loyal just days

after being relegated from the Qatar Stars League.

Al Kharaitiyat will now take on Al Arabi in the third

round of the competition.

The Emir Cup – the most popular football tournament in ‎

Qatar – ends after five stages on May 20.
